The Business Leader Awards is the most prestigious and celebrated business event of the year in Bristol and the South West.
This high profile, exclusive event brings together the most influential leaders in business, education and government to recognise and celebrate business success, supported by the area’s most important professionals and advisors.
The awards ceremony took place at Ashton Gate Stadium with 15 categories up for grabs at the South West’s premier business event.
Just under 600 attendees, including the most prominent business figures in the region, gathered to recognise and celebrate business success at the black-tie gala event.
The awards were independently judged by a team of sector specialists.
With over 180 applicants from inspiring businesses throughout the South West of England, we were overwhelmed to take the runner-up spot in the Business of the Year category.
BBC Radio 2’s Jeremy Vine hosted the awards and kept the audience entertained with stories of his past and comments on the current political situations around the world.
#BLA17 was one of the top trends in Bristol and in the UK on Twitter during the event.
Soltech IT, Managing Director, Richard Sheppard commented, "This is another fantastic achievement for Soltech IT and the our dedicated team. This further adds recognition to the strength and success of the business in recent years".
