Finalists for Business Leader Awards revealed

Photo of Business Leader AwardsThe shortlist for the prestigious Business Leader Awards has been revealed.

Despite being a year like no other, the awards received a record number of entries from businesses right across the region, and from various sectors.

To decide the shortlist, a team of independent judges were assembled, and they spent over two months scoring and critiquing the companies that put themselves forward.

Andrew Scott, founder of the Awards, comments: “We need successful businesses and entrepreneurs and these awards provide a platform for them to showcase what they do and celebrate their success. It’s a huge endorsement of the innovation and get up and go in the region, that despite the pandemic and everything thrown at business leaders, we’ve still seen a record number of entries.”

Business Leader would like to thank this year’s sponsors and judges. To see this year’s judges, go here:

Listed below is the shortlisted business and please note that they are no in particular order; or in order of winning.

In the coming weeks, Business Leader will be announcing the winners and then hosting a celebration dinner when safe to do so in 2021.
