Finalists announced for MKBAA 2022

The esteemed judging panel for Milton Keynes Business Achievement Awards 2022 has announced the finalists for this year’s awards taking place on 24 March at Stadium MK.

The theme for this year’s awards is ‘MK – Leading the UK’s Green Recovery – Survive, Revive & Thrive’ and many of the businesses and organisations who entered this year focused their submissions around this subject.

Chair of the judging panel, Anita Nadkarni, commented, "The judging panel had a really tough job this year. There were so many excellent submissions that really show the breadth and depth of the business community in Milton Keynes. It was also humbling to see how many businesses had taken on board the environmental theme of this year's awards, giving us all a positive outlook for the future. The established judging process was very well supported and upheld by Nick Mann and Jane Horridge."

The glittering awards ceremony will be hosted by broadcaster Tony Dibbin and this year’s influential Guest Speaker will be Wayne Hemingway MBE. The event will bring together the wider Milton Keynes business community for the first time in over two years and promises to celebrate success stories from across the city.
