Signature Awards 2015 will be held on 20th March
The Asian community continues to thrive in all areas including the area of professional services. From setting up of their own businesses to playing key roles in the public sector, British Asians are also playing a key role in wealth generation by advising owners of businesses in their capacity’s as either lawyers, accountants, land advisers or bankers on how to grow their businesses and increase prosperity for the community.
Ninder Johal’s comments came as his company Nachural launches the Signature Awards which is due to take place on the 20th March at Edgbaston Stadium.
In this uncertain world where ‘disruption’ is ever present, the role of the advisor is paramount. Businesses are so involved in their businesses that they need specialist help from qualified professionals who can assist in areas from access to finance to helping with employment issues.
‘The awards is only part of the picture. The bigger picture is to encourage leadership capacity in the region as we continue to understand the global picture with an uncertain Eurozone, a slowing global economic picture and the need to create local prosperity. We hope in time to look at issues like mentoring and leadership development for our next level of leaders’ says Ninder Johal who is also president of the Black Country Chamber of Commerce and sits on the Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership board.
We have had a strong response to nominations in part showing the strength of the business and financial sectors in the region. The Signature awards build on the success of the Black Country Asian Business Association which has seen a growing number of Asian businesses source access to funding through initiatives such as RGF and Growing Places schemes.
Sponsors include Turkish Airlines, Cartwright King, Divya Group.
The black tie awards dinner is due to take place on the 20th March at Edgbaston Stadium. Th event will be hosted by BBC’s Tommy Sandhu and the charity on the evening will be LoveBrum.
