Considered by many to be one of the biggest business awards events in Britain, the evening will shine a spotlight on creativity, innovation and resilience across various industries.

The Lloyds Bank-sponsored Awards’ ceremony brings together the entire business community, and aims to recognise perseverance, guile and innovation in today’s challenging landscape.

The event shines a light on outstanding achievement, while showcasing those trailblazers and visionaries who have succeeded during difficult economic times. Among those up for awards are entrepreneurs, SMEs and FTSE 100 juggernauts.

The team of event organisers are led by Sarah Austin, who says: “The resilience displayed by businesses, as they face adversity head-on, while adapting to life during these unprecedented times, stands as a testament to the indomitable spirit of the UK’s entrepreneurial community.

“Therefore, the Lloyds Bank British Excellence Awards provides an opportune moment to honour and laud accomplishments across various industries. Behind each deserving finalist are individuals who have ceaselessly toiled not merely to survive, but also to thrive.

“And this annual event certainly offers a fitting acknowledgment of their achievements. The ceremony recognises businesses of all shapes and sizes, culminating in a spectacular occasion at the Grosvenor House Hotel.”

More than 30 judges have been involved in deciding who should receive these coveted awards.
