Pendered said, “It’s a huge honour to be given this award. There are some fantastic female entrepreneurs out there and they all have amazing stories to tell. I hope the NatWest everywoman awards will encourage even more women to come forward and build businesses of their own”.

Pendered, who was previously a BBC TV producer, co-founded Media Zoo in 2003. The business has three offices in London, one in Glasgow, one in Switzerland and one in the USA.
