The Lloyds Bank British Business Awards (@bbexawards) are thrilled to announce King’s Business School as the official Education Partner for the awards. King’s Business School will be hosting a post awards winners’ reception, as well as hosting a networking event at Bush House during the summer of 2022.
King’s Business School, a faculty of King’s College London, is a champion for entrepreneurship in the UK and supports entrepreneurs through research designed to solve problems and create a more sustainable future. It is home to the Entrepreneurship Institute which helps students, staff and alumni from across King’s to be more entrepreneurial and is an important part of London’s entrepreneurship ecosystem.
King’s Business School’s emphasis on business research to make the world a better place, and support for young entrepreneurs through the Entrepreneurship Institute, makes the education partnership a perfect match for the Lloyds British Business Excellence Awards. Whether a team or an individual, each award finalist is an innovator and/or disruptor in their field that has navigated one of the most challenging and turbulent years the UK has faced, and thrived. They embody the entrepreneurial spirit that King’s Business School aims to develop. Julie Devonshire OBE, Director of the Business School’s Institute for Entrepreneurship, was selected to help judge The LDC Entrepreneur of the Year Award – the winner of which will be announced at The Lloyds Bank British Business Excellence Awards ceremony on 9th November 2021 at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane.
In addition to this, and in support of the winners, King’s Business School will be hosting an intimate gathering to celebrate the notable winners of the awards in December.
Sarah Austin, founder of British Business Excellence Awards, spoke about the partnership:
“We are extremely lucky to be welcoming King’s Business School London as our Official Education Partner of the Lloyds Bank British Business Excellence Awards.

We’re thrilled to be celebrating with the finalists and our Official Education Partner at the awards ceremony in November, where we can share in the joy of celebrating some of the brightest business minds in the UK.”
Julie Devonshire OBE, Director at King’s College London, commented:
