BDO announced as Headline Sponsor for 2021 Business Leader Awards


Global accountancy and business advisory firm, BDO LLP, has been announced as the  Headline Sponsor for the 2021 South West Business Leader Awards.

BDO was also the Headline Sponsor at last year’s event – and you can view the winners here.

BDO is a top ten accountancy firm which provides tax, audit and assurance, advisory and business outsourcing services to companies across all sectors of the economy.

Although last year’s event took place virtually, BDO will now be sponsoring the live and digital event – set to take place at Ashton Gate Stadium in Bristol on Thursday 23rd September.

The awards are organised by Business Leader Magazine, the leading media company for UK businesses. The first awards and gala dinner were held in 2013, and today attracts over 700 guests including celebrities and high-profile hosts such as Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Lady Michelle Mone OBE, Jeremy Vine, TV stalwart Gyles Brandreth and comedian Russell Kane.

An independent judging panel will assess hundreds of entries and finalists will attend a prestigious gala dinner where winners are announced.

Paul Falvey, Corporate Tax Partner, BDO UK LLP, said: “We are proud to be acting as headline sponsors to the South West Business Leader Awards once again in 2021. It is a real pleasure to be on the judging panel each year and meet with such a variety of the region’s business leaders. It has been a difficult year for many, but as we emerge from a winter of lockdowns and restrictions, businesses will be looking ahead with plans to invest and recruit to help drive the UK’s economic recovery forward. Entering for an award is an excellent opportunity for businesses to gain exposure, credibility and recognition as further lockdown restrictions are lifted and we return to a level of normality.”
