The Awards Ceremony and Gala Dinner 

Stephen Martin, director general of the IoD said “I was honoured to win a Director of the Year award when I was chief executive at Clugston Group. It felt like a terrific personal achievement, but more importantly it recognised the hard work and effort that had been put in by the entire team around me.

“I’d urge directors from all industries to put themselves forward for an award and join us on 5 July as we come together in York to celebrate successful leadership.”

Hosted by Danni Hewson, BBC







Entertainment will be provided by the outstanding musician Ellie Coast

Ellie is a singer-songwriter specialising in a fusion of Jazz, Soul and Pop. She gained her BA in Jazz in 2014 and has since been gigging regularly across the UK.

But don't just take our word for it. None other than Mica Paris said "I was feeling a bit of Amy Winehouse, I was feeling a bit of Sarah Vaughan...You've got that execution that you draw the person into your vocal. It's fabulous".


And Magician Scott Perry who will mingle with guests during the drinks reception.

Described as “truly amazing” by HRH Prince Charles, Scott Perry is a leading magician and innovator. From long term unemployed to working soirees with the likes of Kevin Spacey, Joanna Lumley, Phillip Schofield and events for global organisations such as Bloomberg, Top Right Group and The Prince’s Trust, Scott is a rare treasure.
