The nomination call for the 14th annual Asian Achievers Awards is now open. Members of the public are invited to nominate individuals of South Asian origin, who they believe have inspired communities and achieved outstanding accomplishments in their respective fields.
Hosted by Asian Business Publications, Ltd (ABPL), this year the ‘Entrepreneur’ theme will help steer the nominations to enterprisers who have played a pivotal role in shaping their visions of a better today and an improved tomorrow.
Mr. CB Patel, Publisher/Editor, ABPL Group says: “Each year the Asian Achievers Awards raises the standard of excellence and this year with our celebration of ‘Entrepreneurs’, we hope to raise the bar once again.
“Alongside our high profile winners, I am proud that The Asian Achievers Awards also praises unsung heroes whose outstanding contributions to their local communities generally goes unrecognised on a larger scale.
“One of our goals by doing this is to give the next generation of entrepreneurs, role models who they can identify with, look up to and potentially even reach out to. Mainly, however, we want to showcase these remarkable people and celebrate their magnificent achievements.”
Taking place on September 19th at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel, the Asian Achievers Awards celebrates individuals who are responsible for bringing the South Asian community to the centre stage.
Since launching 14 years ago, The Asian Awards has helped raise millions of pounds for charity and this year, the chosen charity partner is the Cherie Blair Foundation.
