Presenting the award, Jan Flawn praised Mrs Livingstone’s work to rescue and revolutionise the orchestra.
The awards, in their second year, atracted more than 160 nominations judged by an independent panel of local and national businesspeople. The winners in 13 categories were announced at an awards dinner attended by more than 500 guests.
Jan said: “This year’s awards were a huge success for all our finalists, winners, sponsors and guests. Once again, we had quite a challenge choosing our winners as all were deserving of an award.
“These awards are now firmly established in the city as an event that truly recognises and acknowledges leading women in Milton Keynes.”
Winners from this year’s Women Leaders Awards will go forward as nominees of the national CBI First Women awards next year.
