Business Leader Awards 2017

With previous hosts including Sir Ranulph Fiennes OBE, business icon Michelle Mone OBE, TV celebrity Gyles Brandreth, Jeremy Vine, Russell Kane and supermodel Caprice, the Business Leader Awards has become the most prestigious and celebrated business event of the year in Bristol and the South West.

This high profile, exclusive event brings together the most influential leaders in business, education and government to recognise and celebrate business success, supported by the area’s most important professionals and advisors.

However, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on businesses and event, the Awards will now be a virtual event – with more details to be released in due course.

Winning a Business Leader Award is the highest possible accolade and will elevate your business with enormous media coverage. Attending the virtual event will remain a highlight of the business calendar, while sponsoring the awards will align your brand with the most prestigious business event of the year.
