Founding Managing Director of London-based ConnectJets Gabriella Somerville will be presented the Honorary Global Exemplary Award for Entrepreneurship 2015 by the EU-WIIN (European Union-Women Inventors & Innovators Network). The award celebrates the achievements of women working in traditionally male dominated fields and recognizes Gabriella's inspirational and exemplary achievement within the aviation industry.
