The Institute of Directors holds Director Of The Year Awards across each of its regions throughout the year. Winners from each region are then brought together in a national final held in Central London.

The Director Awards celebrate the achievements of the region’s most hardworking and innovative business leaders. The process of entering has many benefits in itself. Of course, there is also the recognition and prestige associated with winning!
