Director of the year awards



Due to the fight against Covid we had to make the difficult decision to reschedule our 2020 awards that were due to take place in May.

Recently we have had to make a further decision as to whether or not to hold the awards virtually and we have decided that with the more positive news for 2021 that we would not do this but instead roll over our 2020 entries into the 2021 Awards.

Our aim is to launch the 2021 awards in April with the Awards lunch taking place on Friday 10th or Friday 17th September when we can all get together to celebrate the best in Wales.

The 2020 entry portal remains open until the 2021 portal goes live mid-January which will just be a re-branding exercise and therefore all submitted and ‘in-progress’ entries will be automatically transferred over into the 2021 Awards. If you have not yet started your entry please do so at any time as the entry portal IS OPEN!

We would like to thank our headline and category sponsors for continuing to support these prestigious awards and we look forward to seeing you all in 2021.

In the meantime, thank you for your continued support. Please do take care and stay safe.

Robert Lloyd Griffiths OBE
Director – IoD Wales
