The 13 categories are:

Family Business

Social Value and Sustainability

Start-Up

Young Director

Public Sector

Third Sector

Small-Medium Business (below £50m turnover)

Chair’s Award for Excellence in Director and Board Practice.

Guy Schanschieff, Managing Director of Northampton based Bambino Mio, the global reusable nappy brand, won the International category last year and went on to triumph in the same category at the national finals.

Guy said: “I was thrilled to be named the International Director of the Year at the 2019 IoD Awards because I truly believe that there’s real purpose to what we’re doing at Bambino Mio. Entering the IoD awards gave me the opportunity to talk about all of the impactful work that we’re carrying out at an international level.

“Winning this award recognises the fact that Bambino Mio is helping to drive positive social change around the world, which is something that we are extremely proud of. It’s important that we continue our mission to raise awareness of the numerous benefits that reusable nappies have on our environment, finances, and baby by educating people across the globe.”

Jake Third, Client Services Director of Hallam Internet, Nottingham, was joint winner of the Young Director category in 2019 and was Highly Commended for Young Director in the national finals.

Natalie Sykes, regional director for the IoD East Midlands, said: “Winning one of our awards is a fantastic accolade and those who triumph go on to compete at the IoD’s UK finals. Please do encourage each other as business leaders to enter the awards so we can showcase the fantastic leadership and work being done right across the East Midlands.”

The deadline for nominations is Friday 30 April while the deadline to enter the awards is Friday 29 May. Apply here:https://www.iodawards.com/eastmidlands

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers across the region enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements. Given this lack of revenue stream we are calling on the generosity of our readers to help us fill that void and enable our journalists to continue delivering the news that you enjoy.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs from just £33.60 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

We value your readership and your support, as this enables us to continue to provide our regular daily news updates. We've been established over 30 years, during which we've lost count of the numerous recessions and financial meltdowns, and we intend to weather the storms caused by Covid-19. So, every reader contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping us to get through this. Please click here to help support your favourite news site/magazine.
