Just one month to go: Meet the companies in the running for the West Midlands Business Masters Awards

There is now just over one month to go until our annual Business Masters and Annual Dinner event.

The shortlist for the 2021 West Midlands Business Masters Awards has been revealed, with a wide range of businesses across the region being recognised for their achievements and resilience during an unprecedented period.

Winners of the prestigious awards will be announced at TheBusinessDesk.com’s annual dinner at the Macdonald Burlington in Birmingham on the evening of the Thursday 11 November. Tickets are now available.

The judging panel included Andy Wilkinson, chair of the IoD Greater Birmingham, Chris Barlow, partner and chief operating officer of MHA MacIntyre Hudson’s Birmingham and Leicester offices and Clive Read, head of Shakespeare Martineau’s Birmingham office.


Sam Metcalf, Midlands editor of TheBusinessDesk.com, said: “We were overwhelmed by the quality and quantity of entries for this year’s awards, with many demonstrating resilience and forward-thinking in the face of the challenges brought about by the pandemic.

“The judges had some very tough decisions to make over the shortlist, as the competition was extremely high.

“This year’s shortlist features an array of interesting businesses, of different sizes, who are focused on ensuring success for their business, as well as supporting their employees and the regional economy. We were particularly excited by the quality of entries into our two new categories of Disruptor and Sustainability which really highlighted some of the amazing work being undertaken in the West Midlands.

“The achievements of all those shortlisted should not be underplayed as it takes a lot of time, hard work and entrepreneurial spirit – especially when we look at the economic backdrop of 2020 – with not only the challenges of Brexit but a pandemic to weather – to achieve what these businesses have.

“I’d like to thank all of our judges for giving their time. Congratulations to all of those shortlisted, we are very much looking forward to celebrating the region’s business achievements in October.”
