The most exciting news of the year…

It’s taken many an hour, many a debate and a lot of time, but the judges arrived at their final decisions on Monday during an all day judging session at partner and sponsor premises, Warwick business School, the Shard.

Each of our 10 categories has three shortlisted entrants from over 25 entries. It was noted among the judges that the standard continues to be exceptionally high, making the decision process all the more difficult. We had over 30 judges including business leaders, top military brass and successful veteran entrepreneurs. The talent and skills demonstrated by former military personnel and their partners was evident in the scope, breadth and success of the entrants.

Those shortlisted below are invited to attend the event on the 7th November at the Plaisterers’ Hall in the City of London.
