One month to go until Northern Leadership Awards

Tickets are still available for the first-ever Northern Leadership Awards, supported by CMS.

The awards will celebrate the people and organisations across the North who are role models for their teams and raise the bar for their competitors.


It follows the success of the Yorkshire Leadership Awards last year.

The shortlist will showcase the best qualities of modern leadership – of inspiration, collaboration and empowerment – and the winners will be revealed at an awards dinner which will be a celebration of the transformational impact great leaders are having in our region here and now.

The event takes place on Thursday 28 November from 6.30pm to 12am at Queens Hotel, Leeds. More than 300 guests will be at the gala dinner. To book a ticket click here.

Mark Haywood from CMS said: “Leadership sets a vision, creates agendas and sees opportunities others might not see. Leadership in companies and organisations makes the difference between excellence and mediocrity or failure. Our companies in the North have that in abundance.
