The Lifetime Achievement award is sponsored by Barclays
At Barclays, we are fully committed to supporting our clients in Milton Keynes, in particular, helping them to fulfil their growth potential and we continue to enjoy working with existing and new clients and ensure they are at the heart of everything we do.
Through the recent uncertainty it is great to see businesses in the area continuing to invest for the future, creating wealth and employment, investing in new technologies or exploring new markets for exports. Innovation remains high on the agenda for many corporate businesses we work with which is a continual source of inspiration for us.
It’s a privilege to work with such a wide and diverse range of businesses, across a breadth of markets that are continuing to focus on how they can grow their business. These businesses play a significant part in fuelling the success of this region and our economy.
We are therefore delighted to once again sponsor the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Milton Keynes Business Achievement Awards 2018.
