This category is aimed at those making their way in the professional world, be it as lawyers, accountants, stockbrokers, finance directors, HR partners, business or company managers or similar. It also applies to the many young South Asians who have created and launched their own businesses, whose dynamism and entrepreneurship are forces to be reckoned with.

We believe there are many success stories out there worthy of recognition.

Be they ambitious young men and women running their own companies or those forging careers in other people’s businesses and organisations, our judges will be looking to balance the achievements of both the employed and self-employed in shortlisting entrants who can show genuine progress or innovation in their chosen field and inspire others to follow in their footsteps.
