Ambition means breaking new ground, taking considered risks and following your gut instinct.
This week’s leaders epitomise this kind of vision and determination. They are behind businesses that are solving the world’s biggest problems, innovating with technology to create new virtual services or bring high-end jewellery at an affordable price to customers all over the world. The array of sectors that these ambitious leaders touch contributes to the UK’s continually evolving and diverse economy. It’s this ambition that helps the UK compete on a global stage.
There can only be 50 Most Ambitious Leaders but the sheer volume of exceptional entries this year means that we have an exciting and dynamic “Ones to Watch” category. These are the leaders behind tomorrow’s mid-sized firms, growing innovative and resilient businesses that are making a big impact on their customers and target markets. These Ambitious Leaders in-the-making will be the nation’s principle job creators in years to come, generating growth and prosperity for the British economy.
Next week meet our next 10 most ambitious business leaders and hear more from LDC and an entrepreneur supported by The Prince’s Trust about the importance of ambition.
