We are getting closer and closer to the Virtual Midlands Director of the Year Awards!
The IoD Midlands Awards celebrates the achievements of the region’s most hardworking and innovative business leaders.
They aim to raise awareness among IoD members, the wider business community and public of the significant contribution business leaders can make to society and to economic prosperity in our region.
We want to say a massive thank you to all of our sponsors this year and share some of their words about sponsoring our prestigious Director of the Year Awards.
“DRP is proud to support the 2020 IoD’s Director of the Year awards. We are really delighted to be able to host this year’s awards live from our studios in Worcestershire. Since March we have broadcast over 450 events and over one million viewers across the globe from our 10 studios for a diverse range of organisations. We’ve also been extremely proud to have been able to use the facilities to help raise money for local charities through virtual fundraising events and support key workers and local care homes. And tonight we are really happy to be playing a part in helping to share the success of local businesses and its people”
"BHSF are delighted to sponsor the IoD's Director of the Year Awards 2020. Last year we celebrated at the awards when our former Chairman, Andrew Milner, was honoured to receive the Non-Executive Director of the Year award. After such a difficult year it has been inspirational to see the resilience not only at BHSF, but businesses across the country. We look forward to celebrating the success of businesses in the Midlands"
