The Oamaru Her Business Network has been named in the top two networks in New Zealand at the recent Bloom Her Business forum and awards in Auckland.

The network was established in 2007 by co-ordinator Sue Morton and is one of 19 throughout the country.

There is an emphasis on connecting like-minded women who work in business, own their business, are a partner in a business, dream of owning their own business or choose to attend network events for personal development.

The network of the year award - won by the Wellington group - reflected the effort of the co-ordinator.

Co-ordinators were measured on enthusiasm, passion and dedication that ensured well-run, successful meetings and a high membership level.

Her Business magazine owner Annah Stretton said leading a women's business network in these times was a real challenge.

Mrs Morton had not only assisted members in expanding their business and "igniting their career passions", she had achieved excellent growth for her network, Ms Stretton said.

The Oamaru network had between 50 and 60 members and a database of 350-400.

Mrs Morton was "absolutely thrilled".

"It's dynamic for Oamaru," she said.
