Gary Headland, IoD East Midlands regional chair, said: “Our awards are among the most prestigious and credible in leadership, recognising the achievements and successes of directors across the public, private and third sectors.

The deadline for nominations is 30 June 2021; the deadline for entries is midnight Friday 16 July.
