TOP-PERFORMING businesswomen across the Swansea Bay area have been honoured by the South Wales Evening Post and Swansea Bay Business Life magazine. More than 180 people packed out the Women in Business Awards 2012 at Swansea's Dragon Hotel yesterday. The event, which is now in its third year, saw translation firm founder and multi-award- winning businesswoman Anna Bastek named Woman of the Year 2012. The 31-year-old also received the award for Rising Star of the Year and is in the running for the title of UK director of the year, due to be announced by the Institute of Directors (IOD) in a ceremony next month. Ms Bastek set up Wolfestone Translation in Swansea in 2006 and now runs the business with a full-time staff speaking more than 20 different languages and more than 5,000 translators working in more than 200 different countries worldwide. She said: "I feel really proud and I think the hard work I put in has been worthwhile. "I think it is really important to recognise women as there is not that many on the boards of FTSE 100 companies." The Wolfestone founder is aiming to open offices in North America, South America and Asia in the next two years. Read the full article here.
