As we approach a new decade in business, IoD South West is looking for the top business leaders to step forward for the Director of the Year Awards 2020 where we will celebrate the very best business leaders within our community. Don't miss the opportunity to nominate yourself or someone you know who deserves to be acknowledged among peers.

Simon Face, Regional Director for the South West said "In uncertain times leadership and strong governance have never been more important to successful directors. These IoD Awards celebrate and showcase the best directors in the region who have demonstrated they are able to adapt, seize opportunities and strive in an ever changing world. We would encourage you to consider entering these awards with the added bonus of the winners of each category receiving a year's complimentary IoD membership, courtesy of the category sponsors."
