The awards, hosted by All Things Business, are being followed up with the Northamptonshire Education Awards, also taking place at the County Ground, the evening after on November 10th, hosted by broadcasting legend Eamonn Holmes.
All Things Business Managing Director Ben Thomas commented: “We’re thrilled to be presenting these two awards ceremonies. Now in their fifth year, the 2023 NBEAs is sure to be bigger and better than ever.
"All Things Business has always championed the idea that business needs education and education needs business. We’ve turned these events into two of the biggest nights in the awards calendar.
“We’re delighted to be able to welcome top comedian Rob Beckett to present the business awards, and one of the UK’s leading TV presenters Eamonn Holmes for the education awards. I’m sure our sponsors, finalists and guests will be tremendously excited about what’s in store on the two big nights.
“This is an incredible opportunity to be a part of two very special occasions. And, of course, we urge everyone in the business and education communities to come along and celebrate amazing achievements across these sectors.”
