West London Business Awards 2021 Shortlist Announced

West London Business is proud to announce the shortlist for the eighth edition of the West London Business Awards. Celebrating talent, entrepreneurship and resilience to a national and international audience.

Though 2020 has created some challenging circumstances for West London’s Business community, the situation has led to some of the most innovative and successful business practices we’ve seen in the eight years the Awards have been running, proving that, as ever, West London is ‘Open for Business.

A milestone event in the region’s business calendar, the Awards recognise the outstanding achievements of organisations and individuals across five themes: SME sector leadership, sustainable & responsible business, economic resilience, corporate leadership, and individual leadership. The winners in each category, as well as the much sought-after title of ‘West London Company of the Year 2021’, will be announced at the awards ceremony on Thursday 4th February 2021. In a sign of the times, we will be hosting the ceremony online – though attendees should expect as much glitter, glitz and glam as ever!

Andrew Dakers, CEO of West London Business said:

“In a sign of how dynamic West London’s economy is, one of the key outcomes to remember from 2021’s awards will be the exceptionally large number of industry defining practices developed this year. Entrants have taken the idea of business resilience to the next level, and shown themselves to be world class innovators and change makers. Our judges were particularly pleased to note so many businesses demonstrating that they’re at the heart of their communities, stepping up to the plate when they were most needed due to COVID. The Awards night this year will be a chance to reward our regions’ community champions. People and companies who haven’t just demonstrated excellence in adapting to unprecedented shifts in our economy, but also in what it means to be a socially responsible business.”
