We also want to showcase the best of UK plc. Enter our awards to highlight the brilliant work you’ve done, boost your national coverage, stand out amongst the competition, get noticed by the country’s investors and commentators – and inspire the next generation of leaders.

Upcoming events:

Management Today Business Awards


Date: Virtual awards 31st March 2021; earlybird deadline 18th December 2020


The Management Today Business Awards recognise the organisations and individuals breaking new ground and achieving consistent excellence across any sector of British business. Entries are encouraged from small, medium and large businesses, focusing on your achievements over the last 18 months. The awards will allow businesses to share best practice, showcase your work both to key stakeholders and clients, and compare your company against the very best of the entire UK business community, not just those in your specific industry.


The Future of Work: Reinventing the Workforce


Date: 12th May 2021, Online Event


In the third of Management Today’s Future of Work series, Reinventing the Workforce, is the platform to hear from a range of leaders about what powers your organisation to success - the people and your culture. The workplace has changed significantly over the past 12 months with office workers having to be based from home, profits slashed, redundancies and restructuring. Through all of the uncertainty, the management of your staff is critical. Greater staff happiness and support will lead to stronger business results.

Leadership Lessons


Date: 22-23 June 2021


Throughout time, a good business has been made great - thanks to the power and vision of its leader. Once upon a time we might have had preconceived ideas about what makes a good leader, but over the last 12 months the rulebook has been thrown out of the window.

Building on the overwhelming success of last year's event, Management Today’s Leadership Lessons 2021 conference will once again bring together senior leaders from a cross-section of industry sectors to share their insights on how you can recover, resize and reimagine your business.

Hosted virtually across two days, 22nd & 23rd June, Leadership Lessons 2021 will provide a platform for business leaders and innovators to come together for a mixture of thought leadership and strategy sharing panel discussions, as well as workshop style sessions with actionable takeaways for you and your business.
