Could you be a Director of the Year?

29 Apr 2020

Could you be a Director of the Year?

In this time of unprecedented challenge and change, directors are drawing on all of their talent and resilience to support staff, collaborate and identify innovative routes to market.

Our Director of the Year awards recognise the fantastic work being done by directors across our region.

Did you enjoy a successful year, prior to the pandemic? Have you forged new international relationships? Are you launching new, innovative products? There’s an award category for you.

We want to hear about your success – and how you did it.

We also want to hear about the ways in which you have pulled your business through these extraordinary times. How have you repositioned your business to address the changing trading environment? How have you evolved your products and services to meet customer demand? Tell us your story.

Our Director of the Year awards for East Midlands recognise the top directors in the business, public and third sectors. The 13 categories are SME; Large business; Young Director (under 42 years); Public Sector; Not for Profit / Third Sector; Start Up; Family business; Student; Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity; Social value and Sustainability Impact; International; Innovation; and Non-Executive.

The winners go forward to fly the flag for our region at the national Director of the Year Awards finals, where they could be crowned one of the UK’s top directors.

We have extended the closing date for entries to 29 May to give you the maximum amount of time to enter.

A Director of the Year award is a fantastic accolade. This year’s winners will be those that have shown fantastic leadership to grow their business and those who have triumphed through the most challenging conditions imaginable.

We know that some award entry forms can be complicated and time-consuming. We also understand that your time is limited. That’s why we have made our awards entry process as straight-forward as possible.

Visit our awards hub to start your Director of the Year award journey – who knows where it could lead you!
