West London Business Awards 2019 shortlist announced!

The judging panel of the West London Business Awards 2019 met on Wednesday 21 November and today announces its shortlist. The Awards recognise the outstanding achievements of organisations and individuals across five themes: sector leadership, sustainable & responsible business, economic growth, corporate leadership, and individual leadership. The winners in each category, as well as the overall West London Company of the Year 2019, will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony and dinner on Friday 8 February at Twickenham Stadium.

Now in their sixth year these are the only business awards for the West London sub-region. They celebrate business excellence, and showcase the innovation and entrepreneurial vibrancy of West London’s remarkable business community.

Andrew Dakers, CEO of West London Business said:

“We have again received a fantastic number of high quality entries this year, despite tough entry criteria. Our shortlist, which this year includes Corporate categories for  the first time, provides a window on the excellence that continues to drive West London’s economy forward, as well as the exciting innovations coming through. The awards night at Twickenham will provide a fitting platform, and plenty of inspiration too, as we recognise the success of all these businesses.”

“The Gala dinner will also see us announce our first West London Business Leader of the Year, a Lifetime Achievement Award winner and a new line-up of West London Business Ambassadors.  We look forward to a great night.”
