Lord Sebastian Coe and Lord SebastianCoe announce finalists for Business Champion Awards

Business Champion Awards are designed to celebrate the best of British business across the country.

It's time to celebrate the people who always go the extra mile, the inspirational leaders who find ways to adapt and lead their business beyond survival to a time of prosperity for all employees. It's time to reward the tenacity of young, keen, hungry few who have made the office a brighter and brighter place. Our list goes on, right up to twelve awards, each championing British business.

After the phenomenal success of the inaugural Business Champion Awards, which culminated in a glittering awards dinner hosted by Huw Edwards in London's East Wintergarden, the founder and director Richard Alvin said that we want the north to be represented, it is not just about London and the home counties.

We know that SMEs make up 99% of the nation's businesses, covering every possible product, trade and skillset. How these businesses were formed, what tactics have been used to help them adapt and survive and the challenges they ve overcome are stories that the team at Business Champion Awards and Business Matters want to hear. Wave goodbye to the time consuming awards of the past and say a big hello to the awards of the future. It is time to change up the status quo and we know that we need to focus on work and turning a profit so we focus on being digital and carbon neutral. Meet and greet fellow finalists at our private finalist fireside chat event with none other than Lord Sebastian Coe, who will share his attitude to adversity and be a champion. Each finalist is featured on our media partner Business Matters and is admitted to our Business Champion Awards network of national businesses.

Even if your business doesn't make it to the final, tickets are still available for the evening, hosted by the nation's favourite broadcaster, Huw Edwards, and we will be delivering some surprise guests to entertain. The inaugural event saw LED drummers mark the beginning of an evening of fine dining, laughter and awards. A jazz trio and two Mock the Week stars had everyone in stitches before partying until the early hours.

Applications are now open.
