The clock is ticking for business people in Devon and Cornwall who want to enter one of the region’s top awards schemes recognising excellence and enterprise.
The deadline for entering The Institute of Directors’ South West Director of the Year Awards 2017 is 31st March. The awards seek to recognise outstanding leaders and entrepreneurs and focus UK-wide attention on success in the region.
Nominations are open to anyone working at director level in any type of business or organisation– they don’t have to be an IoD member.
Categories include: Family Business, Public Sector, Not for Profit/Third Sector, International, Corporate Responsibility, Young Director and Director.
A panel of experts will judge the entries and the winners will be announced at a dinner on May 25th at Ashton Gate Stadium, Bristol.
IoD South West chairman Nick Sturge, a winner in 2014 and Director of the enterprise hub Engine Shed, Bristol, said:
“These awards recognise and celebrate the role of business and enterprise leaders and their contribution to the diverse economy of the South West, from aerospace, technology and tourism through to our reputation in the creative industries and social enterprise. There are some exciting businesses in this region, from start ups to multi million pound turnover international players, many of whom don’t get the recognition they deserve.
