Mursal Hedayat MBE
CEO at Chatterbox
Mursal Hedayat MBE accepted the Barclays Woman in the Community Award for her work with Chatterbox, an online language school that trains and employs refugees as teachers. Having been forced to take refuge in the United Kingdom from Afghanistan with her mother, a polyglot engineer, Mursal founded Chatterbox to harness the untapped talent of refugees and other marginalised professionals. The platform closes the gap between refugees with qualifications and the labour market, creating pathways into professional careers for displaced professionals.
Heba Bevan OBE
Founder of UtterBerry Ltd
Vodafone’s Woman of the Year Innovation Award was presented by Suranne Jones to Heba Bevan OBE, founder of UtterBerry Ltd. A mother of one from Yorkshire who studied electronics and engineering at university, Heba was the only woman on her degree course, before creating one of the most exciting, multi-award winning, young technology companies in Europe. UtterBerry’s revolutionary low-power smart sensor systems, which are all manufactured in the UK, are now being used on some of the world’s biggest civil engineering projects. Their tiny sensors, which monitor loads on structures and bridges, can be used in disaster scenarios such as were executed during Hurricane Katrina, and UtterBerry are also making inroads into the fields of smart construction, smart hospitals, crowd-sensing, and more.
