Winners of Black British Business Awards 2021 revealed

Sophie Chandauka, co-founder and chair of the awards, said: “This year’s winners are not only accomplishing outstanding factors in their individual organisations, but also their particular lives.”

She praised the “ingenuity, resilience and industrial savviness” of this year’s climbing stars and said the successful senior leaders “epitomise” the this means of position designs: “They are leading substantial industrial capabilities even though acting as clever counsel for their traders, boards of administrators and climbing talent in the course of the pandemic and interval of social unrest.”

Segun Osuntokun of law agency Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner was named black British businessperson of 2020 at past year’s ceremony.

In an job interview with The Telegraph, Mr Osuntokun termed for enterprise leaders to guarantee the momentum at the rear of Black Life Matter and bettering variety in the City was not just “a moment”.
