On Friday, March 8th, a feeling of anticipation hummed in the air at the Leeds Marriott. Not only was it International Women's Day, but it was also the night of the inaugural Yorkshire Business Women Awards.

Imagine the surprise when The Biskery was awarded in the Rising Star category! 🌟

We're two women who decided to chart our own course with The Biskery. Our goal is to show everyone out there that following your passion is possible.

The energy in that room was pure joy! We have spent so long searching for their place in the business world, that night was like finding a warm, welcoming home.

Sharing that space with extraordinary women like Katherine Megson, Zandra Moore, Colette Safhill (and so many more!) was nothing short of inspiring. The genuine support and warmth was truly appreciated.

Thank you, Gill Laidler!

Gill, the magic of that night that you created was something else. You brought together so many incredible Yorkshire businesswomen, putting our hard work and accomplishments in the limelight. And that dance floor, live music, and incredible saxophone player? You truly know how to create an unforgettable evening! 🔥

To all the women out there reaching for their dreams – we see you, and we believe in you!

The Biskery’s unique blend of kindness for a successful business

Saskia and Lisa invited me to their bakery in Leeds. I was greeted outside by the aroma of biscuits baking. Inside, oven fans hummed – busy delivering that delicious aroma – and there was the chatter of an organised team. Shelving was piled with smart cardboard packaging and greaseproof paper. Packing labels spilled from their boxes. And there were trays and trays of jammy delights arranged in rows and impressed with personalised messages. We pulled three chairs around the end of a long table – of wood block and blue resin – made by Saskia’s husband.
