An award ceremony celebrating Greater Birmingham’s up-and-coming business talent will now be held online later this year due to coronavirus restrictions.
The sixth annual Future Faces Awards, which is run by Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce, will again celebrate the brightest under 35s across a broad range of categories.
This year’s event will have ten separate categories from which an overall Future Face of 2020 will be chosen, with the awards featuring a new category to mark the city region’s top apprentice.
A separate ambassador award will also be presented but this is only open to members of the Future Faces networking group.
The awards are normally hosted in September at a city centre venue but this year will be shown live on the chamber’s website on August 28.
The categories are:
– Apprentice of the Year
– Arts and Culture
– Charity and Social Enterprise
– Public Sector and Education
– Sales, Marketing and Communications
– Technology and Innovation
– Ambassador (available to members of Future Faces only)
Common Purpose is sponsoring the ambassador award, with the recipient earning a place on its emerging leaders programme, while the overall Future Face of 2020 will receive a place on the MBA course run by sponsor Aston University.
The deadline for award entries is July 31 – visit the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce website for more details.
