Busy Lizzie is the Bees Knees
Recently launched Lifestyle Company, Busy Lizzie, won the innovative Business Women Award for 2005 at the Business and Professional Women’s Club (BPW) on Thursday 3rd March.
The company was formed only four months ago by its founder, Tara-Fay Dalrymple who moved to Galway from England only nine months ago. She was presented with a trophy and cheque for 2,000 euros by Sky TV’S anchor presenter Grainne Seoighe at the prize winning ceremony in The Ardilaun Hotel, in Galway.
Busy Lizzie aims to give back quality time to customers by freeing up their spare time. The company will undertake multiple mundane tasks from organising overcrowded and outdated wardrobes, waiting in for the gasman, weekly grocery shopping and arranging conferences to various secretarial functions.
On receiving the award Tara-Fay said, “I would like to thank BPW and The Galway County & City Enterprise Board Ltd for this great opportunity. Lifestyle Management is a new concept and will help people to restore their work/life balance. It’s an affordable service for everyone from single parents and professional couples to house parents and businesses.”
Busy Lizzie gives individuals all the tools they need and those they never thought of to get started.
