Barbara Blau, founder and president of DP Professionals, was one of eight honorees at the Palmetto Center for Women (PCW) on Friday, Nov. 9.
Blau was honored with the 2012 Entrepreneur TWIN Award. The Entrepreneur Award recognizes women who demonstrate excellence as entrepreneurs or business owners.
“My advice to other women,” Blau said, “is to stand up straight and remember that you belong in the room.”
The TWIN Award (Tribute to Women in Industry) is a distinguished honor presented to women whose outstanding achievements mark them as leaders and role models in business and in the community. Governor Nikki R. Haley was the keynote speaker at the Awards banquet.
