It's been a great British summer: the Olympic and Paralympic Games restored national confidence. Andy Murray even won a tennis Grand Slam. Now it's the turn of inspirational businesses to take the stage...
While the wider economy chugs along in the slow lane, Britain has an array of stunning businesses and individuals who are building a future that's full of hope and dynamism.
Real Business runs two programmes that spotlight the very best of British: our Growing Business Awards (co-hosted with Lloyds Bank and the CBI, and in partnership with the Financial Mail, Land Rover and a host of other partners; and the Women of the Future Awards, in association with Shell, and created by the charismatic Pinky Lilani OBE.
Staggering nominations are already coming in for both awards, and you have just a few hours left to take part.
- The Growing Business Awards recognises entrepreneurial growth businesses and individuals, across ten categories.
- The Women of the Future Awards recognises inspirational women (under the age of 35).
You could change the career and business trajectory of your nominee by putting them forward for these prestigious awards.
We look forward to hearing about your stories.
