National Business Awards Finals 2019

Business Awards

By Donna O’Toole

Tuesday 12th November 2019 in The Great Room of the Grosvenor House Hotel saw the 150 finalists of The National Business Awards come together for the eagerly anticipated finals.

We were thrilled to attend the black-tie ceremony. A stunning event, attended by business leaders, entrepreneurs and honoured individuals.

Guests enjoyed champagne, celebrated with their colleagues and networked amongst the best businesses in the country. We were also treated to an inspiring keynote from Major Tim Peake.

The National Business Awards are highly sought after, prestigious accolade. Hundreds and hundreds of businesses enter but only the best make it to the shortlist.
