Yorkshire Business Masters Awards 2021 – shortlist revealed

The shortlist for the 2021 Yorkshire 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 Yorkshire dinner on Thursday 14 October The Queens Hotel, Leeds. Tickets for the awards can be booked here.

The 2019 Business Masters winners

The shortlist was selected by an independent judging panel comprising, director of West and North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce and non executive director at various businesses, Gerland Jennings; Sharon Jandu, director of Yorkshire Asian Business Association and project director of Northern Asian Power and Stuart Clarke, director of Leeds Digital Festival alongside TheBusinessDesk.com’s Yorkshire editor, Ben Ormsby.

Ormsby 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 Yorkshire.

“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.”
