Winners announced at the 2023 Business Leader South West Awards

The winners have been crowned at the 2023 Business Leader South West Awards at Ashton Gate, hosted by comedian Hugh Dennis and attended by over 600 business leaders, entrepreneurs, and VIPs.

With a rich history showcasing the region’s best companies and the people who run them, the event has solidified its place on the calendar as one of the premier Awards programmes. Receiving hundreds of high-quality entries, the stellar panel of independent judges spent weeks evaluating entries and selecting winners.

Oli Ballard, Director at Business Leader, comments: “Congratulations to every one of our 2023 winners and finalists. You are the beacons of success that make the South West such a brilliant hub of growth and entrepreneurship. We would also like to extend our thanks to this year’s fantastic sponsors, who are committed to supporting the regional economy and the companies and entrepreneurs within it.
