Blueprint Interiors backs the East Midlands Leadership Awards

Rob Day

Blueprint Interiors, the workplace transformation specialist, has thrown its weight behind TheBusinessDesk.com’s forthcoming East Midlands Leadership Awards after being named as one of the event’s key sponsor partners.

The company, based in Ashby de la Zouch, is sponsoring the Transformational Leadership category at the awards event, which will take place from midday at the Crowne Plaza in Nottingham on Thursday November 5.

Tickets are now available for the event, which will celebrate the cream of the region’s business and third sector leadership.

Blueprint Interiors CEO and founder, Rob Day said, “Personally I am delighted that these awards are still going ahead as we need to get the economy back on track. The difficulties that we have all encountered this year means that most business owners have had to show immense character and resilience. It is therefore only right that the regions’ most inspirational leaders are recognised for their hard work and contribution towards ensuring the future of their business and employees.”

He added: “Keeping in touch via video calls has served its purpose, but video will never be a substitute for face to face contact because psychologically as humans we need these interactions. Networking events and business award ceremonies are a vital aspect of being able to develop strong relationships with strategic partners and winning new business. Blueprint Interiors is delighted to be a sponsor and we wish all the finalists the very best of luck.
