British Expertise International Awards 2020

These will be my first awards as CEO of British Expertise International, but they will by no means be the first BEI awards I have attended, and every year I have seen them become more respected and established as THE annual event for showcasing the best of British professional services expertise.

For the past fifty years, and with the kind support of our President HRH The Duke of Gloucester, British Expertise International has championed the power and promise of UK professional services around the world. Our members include the largest companies in the UK, as well as some of the smallest, but all have a crucial role in exporting British skills globally whether that be in project management, engineering, architecture, education, international development, legal, or a host of other essential expertise.

These awards are the principle annual opportunity to showcase the very best of that expertise to a broader set of stakeholders - including UK and other governments, as well as industry peers, potential and existing customers, and the wider supply chain.

The 2020 awards promise to be even more significant, with refined entries and clearer judging criteria, as well as a distinguished judging panel, and a revitalised marketing push amongst key partners. In the context of Brexit and a greater push for a global Britain, we have been given clear direction from our governmental counterparts and others to lead the charge promoting the value of British expertise globally. The awards next year will provide an important element in this renewed vision and focus, and I hope you and your organisation will want to be recognised as playing a crucial role. The best way is to enter for an award. In this brochure you will almost certainly see awards that match a particular project you wish to showcase, but if you are uncertain or would like more advice simply drop us a line and we will be pleased to help.
