    London Chamber of Commerce - 2018 London Business Achievement Awards

    Thank you to Wizards of Video for this Video! 

     

  • Established in 1982 to acknowledge and celebrate local achievement, the Business Achievement Awards have become London's most prestigious business event of the year. Designed to publicly recognize London businesses that exemplify excellence, to be a finalist for an award is in itself a great accomplishment.

    Often called the "Academy Awards" of business achievement in London, the Chamber's annual Business Achievement Awards gala showcases and celebrates some of the outstanding businesses in London. Our Annual Business Achievement Awards is the largest business awards gala of its kind in Canada.

    The London Business Achievement Awards recognizes business excellence in a number of categories including human resources, innovation, environment, corporate social responsibility, agri-business, business of the year and our newest award – the Beyond Borders Award.
