Wales IOD

Friday 17 May 2019, Sophia Gardens Cardiff Stadium

A celebration of leadership talent, success and achievement

 

CELEBRATING THE VERY BEST OF WALES BUSINESS LEADERS

Across Wales, the IoD is building a strong community of business leaders, who understand the challenges, have access to quality personal and professional development, can offer peer support at a senior level and influence policy that affects our businesses (be that local, regional or national) and who generally help make Wales a great place to live and work. A region to stay in after university and a thriving environment to start-up and grow your business.

Attended by business leaders, entrepreneurs, government and media representatives, our annual Director of the Year Awards has recognised directors from diverse regional businesses including: Acorn Executive Search, Cardiff Airport, DevOpGuys, Pobl Group, Principality Building Society, Drugaid Cymru, Contract Services Group, Tiny Rebel, Gofal Enterprises, RockIT Ltd, Connect Assist, RMS, Sony UK Technologies, Dwr Cymru Welsh Water and GoCompare.

The IoD Wales Director of the Year Awards has grown over the past seven years to represent the pinnacle of leadership and business excellence highlighting the significant contribution business leaders can make to society and the economic prosperity in the nation.

The profile of these awards continues to exceed expectations as they attract entries from the very best in Wales. We live in a world where there is much uncertainty and where challenges arise on a daily basis but I am always impressed by the tenacity,
enthusiasm and sheer dogged determination of Directors and senior executives in
organisation’s of all sizes and in all sectors; these awards offer a terrific way of
highlighting and acknowledging talent, best
practice and achievement across Wales.”
