IoD awards

The judging panel

No awards are complete without judges.

The panel of Judges will be drawn from the Winners of last year's Awards (who better to know what it takes to succeed) and other very well established business leaders. They will both collectively and individually bring an additional credibility to what is already established as the premier Awards for the UK's business leaders and business community.
