15 Jan 2019

A celebration of leadership talent, success and achievement across the East Midlands.

It’s time to shine the spotlight on the region’s finest business leaders, as entries open for the 2019 IoD East Midlands Director of the Year Awards. 

The IoD East Midlands Awards take place on Friday, June 21 2019. They celebrate the best of the best across the region’s businesses and directors at the forefront of leadership excellence, and are open to both members and non-members. They aim to raise awareness among IoD members, the wider business community and the public of the significant contribution business leaders can make to society and to economic prosperity in our region.

Attended by business leaders, entrepreneurs, government and media representatives, our annual Awards lunch has recognised directors from diverse regional businesses in our East Midlands branches – from Greater Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.

Why nominate?

The Awards celebrate the achievements of the region’s most hardworking and innovative business leaders and the benefits of entering extend far beyond the recognition and prestige associated with winning.

experience and the benefits that have arisen since winning.
