Following on its tradition of bringing first class awards hosts to the South West, Business Leader has announced that comedian Russell Kane will oversee proceedings at this year’s event.
The Business Leader Awards is the region’s most respected awards event and over 650 CEOs, directors and VIPs attend the event, alongside sponsors such as HSBC, Bristol Airport, UWE, Barclays, BDO, Gallagher and many more.
Russell Kane will deliver his irreverent comedy routine on the night – giving a cutting critique on business, life and politics.
Over 200 businesses have submitted entries to this year’s awards, with the judges visiting businesses and deciding finalists throughout June and July.
Andrew Scott, event founder, comments: “From the word go the Awards were created to give business owners and entrepreneurs a night to remember, where they can celebrate their hard work and success. The 2018 Awards is going to be a spectacular evening and we’re delighted that Russell Kane will be hosting – giving all the attendees some light relief after another tough day in the office or on the road.”
The Awards take place on Thursday September 27 and guests will be treated to a four-course dinner, champagne reception, entertainment throughout the evening and the awards ceremony.
Previous hosts include Lady Michelle Mone OBE, Sir Ranulph Fiennes OBE, Gyles Brandreth and Jeremy Vine.
