Best Business Women Awards 2017 Finalists

Rhythm Time, the award-winning children's music franchise group, have been shortlisted as a Finalist in three categories for the ‘Best Business Women Awards’. The Business awards are designed to recognise the great achievements of those women in the business community and are open to any female business owner UK wide.

Kathy Doolan, Founder and MD of Rhythm Time music classes for babies, toddlers and preschoolers, is proud to announce that she has been shortlisted as a Finalist in the ‘Best Franchisor’ and ‘Best Business Woman working with children and Families’ categories.  “This is fantastic news for Rhythm Time as I'm passionate about encouraging talented people into franchising and providing a rewarding, flexible career that fits around their own personal commitments.  I’m delighted to be recognised for my achievements,” says Kathy.  

Frances Donkin, who runs music classes for babies, toddlers and preschoolers across Cheshire, is delighted to be announced as a finalist in the ‘Best Franchisee’ category.  Frances quotes “I am so proud and honoured to have been announced as a Finalist. To me what I do is very rewarding anyway, but to be recognised for a business award is amazing.”  

Debbie Gilbert, organiser of The Best Business Women Awards said “We were delighted with the number of entries this year, which came in from all over the UK. This is a tough competition judged by business experts. To be a finalist is a major achievement. Finalists have been selected for their business acumen, determination, creativity and tenacity. Over 80% of start-ups fail in the first 3 years and all our finalists are shining examples of being successful entrepreneurs who have proved their success to our judges.”

The winners of the ‘Best Business Women Awards’ will be announced at a glitzy black tie awards ceremony on the 12th of October at Tewin Bury Farm Welwyn, Hertfordshire.

Any parents wishing to book a Rhythm Time music class for their baby, toddler or preschooler should visit to find their nearest class.
