East of England

Friday 14 June 2019, Jockey Club Rooms, Newmarket

A celebration of leadership talent, success and achievement


Across the East of England 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 the East of England 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: East of England Co-op, Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Trust, Tuskerdirect, Perky Blenders, EPOS Now, Start-Rite Shoes and Your Telemarketing.

The IoD East of England awards lunch is a prestigious event hosted in an exclusive venue and is recognised as a must-attend event for senior business people across the region.

Held at the stunning Jockey Club rooms, a historic and prestigious private members club filled with racing memorabilia, the event is one not to be missed.


“The IOD is a prestigious organisation and to be bestowed the title of Director of the Year has been really valuable for a B2B business such as mine. I’m thoroughly looking forward to the national competition and fingers crossed I can bring it home for the East region!”
