The Chancellor, who is also referred to as the Second Lord of the Treasury, was joined at this event by BBC television presenter Naga Munchetty and well-known British Actor David Harewood. In all, there were 17 category winners collecting their awards on Tuesday, November 14th.

Sarah Austin, the event organiser, said: “The awards shone a light on those businesses and entrepreneurs who have truly made an outstanding contribution to British business.

“The calibre of finalists in each category was the best it’s been so far, in the history of this event. Britain’s business elite filled every seat in the hall.

“And what an incredible evening we had. It was an honour to welcome Chancellor Jeremy Hunt, actor David Harewood and host for the occasion Naga Munchetty. The atmosphere was electric as we celebrated these outstanding companies and individuals who have made remarkable contributions to business.

“The anticipation in the room was palpable as we unveiled the winners for each category. The calibre of finalists was exceptional, and it’s clear that Britain’s business elite was well represented.

“Every winner showcased exceptional dedication and innovation in their respective fields. They have set the standard for excellence that will undoubtedly inspire others.
