IoD Director of the Year Awards UK Finals 2018

The finals of the Director of the Year Awards attracts some of Britain’s top business talent and recognises exceptional leadership and good governance.

Open to directors across the business spectrum, the occasion brings together the winners from our regions and nations, to determine who is the ‘best of the best’ in British business.

The awards are judged by a panel of experts and senior figures from both the IoD and across the wider UK business community.
