LDC extends deadline for UK’s Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders Awards to 31 May

3 May 2022

LDC has extended the deadline for its annual search to find Britain’s most exceptional entrepreneurs. Business leaders now have until to Tuesday 31st May 2022 to nominate themselves or be nominated by someone else to be considered this year’s Top 50 Most Ambitious Business Leaders Awards, supported by The Times.

Now in its fifth year, the awards programme will uncover the leaders behind some of the UK’s most exciting mid-sized firms. It will champion tales of ambition, inclusion, sustainable impact, innovation and international prowess.

Whether it’s creating jobs or more equitable societies, contributing to sustainability, expanding overseas, developing new products and services or actively putting purpose at the heart of what they do, LDC and The Times want to share these inspiring stories with the nation. All of The Top 50 and Ones to Watch will be profiled in The Times later this year and invited to celebratory events across the UK where individual award winners will be announced.

An expert panel of judges will come together to determine the individual award winners including The UK’s Most Ambitious Business Leader for 2022 – the one person who best defines the leadership qualities needed in business today – along with awards focused on sustainability, people, innovation and international ambition.

To qualify for the programme, nominated candidates must be the driving force (or co-leaders) behind a fast-growing mid-sized business based in the UK. More information on how to nominate can be found here.
