About the Business Achievement Awards
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.
