Hall of Fame

Tall Poppy Life Members

The red poppy flower is the recognisable symbol of the Hastings Business Women's Network. In the HBWN tall poppies are celebrated, not cut down. We encourage our members to be proud of and promote their success in all fields, at all levels.

Tall Poppy Life Membership Awards are presented to members who have excelled, not only in their business success, but also in their support of others, particularly women.

These are women who take the time to mentor others and are a living, breathing example of the HBWN's vision, ethics and core objectives.
