13 Jun Final deadline for 2024 Lloyds Bank British Business Excellence Awards extended until June 28th

British companies aiming to highlight their perseverance, their impact on the economy and society, and their achievements can take advantage of the opportunity to enter this year’s distinguished Lloyds Bank British Business Excellence Awards thanks to the team extending the deadline for entries.

The deadline was initially Friday 14th June, but because of the high calibre of entries already received and a number of businesses requesting an extension to perfect their submissions, the event organiser Sarah Austin has announced they will now be accepting entries until Friday June 28th.

Businesses of all shapes and sizes, from entrepreneurial start-ups and SMEs all the way through to the FTSE 100 well-established key industry players, enter the awards each year. There are 18 categories covering topics such as diversity, sustainability, and ESG, as well as three new entries for 2024: The FTSE 100 Business of the Year Award, The Customer Loyalty Award and The New Founder of the Year Award.

With Lloyds Bank as the headline sponsor for the fourth year in a row, The Independent as the Official Media Partner, and numerous sponsors onboard, including Business in the Community and the Department for Business and Trade, 2024 is set to be even bigger and better than previous years.
