Charmaine Vincent crowned Business Woman of the Year at SME National Business Awards

We’re delighted to announce that our CEO, Charmaine Vincent, has been won the Business Woman of the Year, at this year’s SME National Business Awards.

This announcement comes within weeks of her National Business Women’s Award win for the same category, and marks her 4th award win since September!

Charmaine Vincent, of Baltimore Consulting, is an award-winning business woman and entrepreneur that has fought her way to the very top, despite adversity through gender inequality.

This win comes after Charmaine recently joined forces with the Bristol Women in Business Charter to become the 41st signatory in the scheme.

The Bristol Women in Business Charter is a long-term project, with the sole purpose of recognising and supporting businesses in and around Bristol that are making progress towards gender equality.

Like Charmaine, the Women in Business Charter’s belief is that businesses cannot reach their full potential if they fail to recruit and retain a gender-balanced workforce.

A truly inspiring business leader, Charmaine founded Baltimore Consulting 10 years ago and she has built a hugely successful business with a great reputation for fulfilling Local Authorities’ hiring requirements and becoming an expert in supporting vulnerable subject areas such as Mental Health, SEN & Safeguarding Adults and Children. Charmaine has high emotional intelligence and believes that her love of the job and supporting others is a contributing factor to the unprecedented growth Baltimore have enjoyed since founding.

Charmaine has empowered others that “anything is possible if you want it enough and hard work gets you everywhere”. Her 8-year-old daughter Florence is her inspiration and she’s delighted that she’s paved the way as a female leader within what is a highly male dominated industry.

Now in their 8th year, the SME National Business awards took place on 1st December at the iconic Wembley Stadium.

At Baltimore Consulting, our mantra is “empowered to be authentic and achieve great things,” and this is something that shines through our business.

Our story is truly unique, and we are proud of that. It’s part of our DNA.
