THE ARCHBISHOP of York John Sentamu and BBC Today programme presenter Justin Webb are the special guests at The Yorkshire Post Excellence in Business Awards.

The annual awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of Yorkshire companies and highlight the many examples of world-class enterprise in God’s Own County.

Tickets are now on sale for the glittering event which takes place in Leeds on October 14.

Our shortlist includes companies of all shapes and sizes. They number household names and start-up firms who are dreaming of greatness.

What they all have in common is a passionate enterprising spirit, combined with the traditional Yorkshire virtues of thrift and common sense.

Sir Gary Verity, chief executive of Welcome to Yorkshire and last year’s individual winner, said the awards help to create “a strong and positive profile” for the region.

DLA Piper, PwC and Yorkshire Bank are the awards’ main sponsors; Bradford University School of Management, Drax Group, QBE Insurance and thebigword are the associate sponsors.

To book tickets contact Jayne Lownsbrough, the Editor’s secretary, by emailing as soon as possible.

The Yorkshire Post will publish a special supplement commemorating the winners in two weeks’ time.
