Ms Quinn said the judges were impressed with the calibre of entries.
She said: "The calibre of entries has been absolutely fantastic.
"The judges have been blown away with what people have achieved and what they want to achieve going forward.
"It is really inspiring to read the entries."
The awards, which are held once every two years, are open to all women, whether working as sole traders or within a large company.
From juggling work life with raising a family, to overcoming difficult problems life throws at you, the candidates have shown the judges just how hard they work to achieve their goals.
Ms Quinn said: "I felt privileged I was able to sit on the panel and hear all of the fantastic stories from this year's entries."
The Women Of Achievement Awards give females the chance to be recognised for their successes and this year, award-winning journalist, Moira Stewart OBE will host the event.
Ms Quinn said: "The ceremony is going to be fantastic and all of the shortlisted candidates will get the chance to have the recognition they deserve."
The main sponsors of the awards are Gosschalks and The One Point, with award sponsors Strawberry, MKM, Spire Healthcare, KC Business, and First Hull Trains also showing their support.
The ceremony will take place on Friday, November 16, from noon to 5pm at The Village Hotel Marquee in Hessle.
