Over 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 100 categories. Some of the categories include Executive of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Company of the Year, Startup of the Year, Women Helping Women and Women Run Workplace of the Year. This year, Dani Peleva is a Finalist in the Woman of the Year – Franchising category.

Dani has worked tirelessly to create the profound 5Fs Franchising Model, which has been tried and tested with great success across numerous franchise operations and locations around the world.

As such, she is often invited to speak at podcasts and other industry events. Dani is thrilled at being shortlisted as a Finalist and has extended warm congratulations to all those who were nominated in the same category. 

Finalists were determined by the average scores of more than 200 business professionals around the world, working on seven juries. Their scores will also determine the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award placements that will be revealed at the 19th annual awards dinner and presentations in Las Vegas.

Alongside the awards dinner and presentation will also be the Women/Future Conference, which is a three-day educational and networking event that will be held virtually from 8 to 10 November.
