Winners of Black British Business Awards 2021 revealed

Sophie Chandauka, co-founder and chair of the awards, stated: “This year’s winners are not only undertaking outstanding factors in their individual organisations, but also their personal life.”

She praised the “ingenuity, resilience and professional savviness” of this year’s climbing stars and stated the winning senior leaders “epitomise” the meaning of function products: “They are leading major professional functions even though acting as sensible counsel for their traders, boards of administrators and climbing expertise throughout the pandemic and period of social unrest.”

Segun Osuntokun of legislation firm Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner was named black British businessperson of 2020 at previous year’s ceremony.

In an job interview with The Telegraph, Mr Osuntokun termed for enterprise leaders to guarantee the momentum guiding Black Lives Matter and increasing variety in the Town was not just “a moment”.
