Rising Above: Join the UK's Largest Business Awards Programme

The Lloyds Bank British Business Excellence Awards is the UK’s largest and most prestigious business awards programme that celebrates the cream of the crop across all industries, championing sustainability, diversity, equality and those that have transcended expectations and limitations throughout the year.

Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives - choice - not chance - determines your destiny. The calibre of entries each year of the awards are always overwhelming not only in volume, but in their sheer quality. The spectacular level of submissions come from a wide spectrum of dynamic industries, but with a real trend across the energy, recruitment, wellbeing, food & drink, and tech sectors, highlighting just how much the UK business landscape is thriving - despite the rhetoric of a nation on its knees. We want to hear from you. 

As the UK's unrivalled celebration of business brilliance, resilience and innovation, the Lloyds Bank British Business Excellence Awards takes centre stage, and this year is no exception. You've made us stand up and take notice, and we can't wait to celebrate your remarkable achievements. 

“The  British Business Excellence Awards are the UK’s largest and most prestigious business awards. Where businesses of all sizes, from the length and breadth of the country come together to celebrate ambition, sustainability, innovation, diversity and … resilience. Lloyds Bank is proud to sponsor these awards, which bring alive the exciting ways that businesses are innovating, adapting and seizing new opportunities. It’s important that we celebrate business success stories and the role that this talent and ambition is playing in driving our economy.

As a UK focused retail and commercial bank, encouraging British businesses will always be central to our core purpose. We are proud to be by the side of British business, supporting over 1 million UK businesses with leading digital and relationship banking services, as they start up, grow and thrive.”

“The Lloyds Bank British Business Excellence Awards are the gold standard in business awards. We were really honoured to have won best New Business in 2022. The stringent entry requirements, the pitch process and the quality of the judging panel meant that the win was all the more meaningful to us. Up against over 10 other finalists we were delighted to have come out on top and the judges feedback was extremely powerful. The team at the BBEA have ensured to keep in close contact with us and recently hosted a winners Luncheon where we got to network with other businesses some of whom we plan to work with. Winning this award has given our business both national and international renown”
