The British Malaysian Chamber of Commerce is set to host its third edition of the Business Excellence Awards on 26th May at Sunway Resort, Sunway City. The flagship event is designed to recognise commerce and honour the very best of UK and Malaysian companies and individuals across a range of achievement categories.
BMCC expects more than 400 attendees from relevant industries to grace the Awards Gala Night – the event will be presented with an exclusive three-course dinner served by the first-ever international outlet of Gordon Ramsay Bar & Grill. The event signifies the BMCC’s commitment to enhancing bilateral relations between the two countries and further enhances the BMCC’s status of being amongst Southeast Asia’s most prolific Chambers.
HSBC Bank Malaysia will be this year’s Platinum Sponsor whilst British Council Malaysia and EcoWorld International act as the Silver and Bronze Sponsor respectively. The event is supported by the British High Commission Kuala Lumpur.
H.E. Charles Hay, British High Commissioner to Malaysia, commended businesses for their resilience, agility, creativity, and hard work in the last two years. He said, “The pandemic has affected how we live and how we do business. Being able to carry on with business, let alone excel at it, has not been easy. That is why this year’s Business Excellence Awards carry much more significance than usual.
“This year’s nominees represent the very best of British and Malaysian businesses. I hope their stories and successes will inspire others to seize the new business opportunities we see beginning to emerge, and that we can look forward to a surge in two-way trade and investment as we begin to surface from the pandemic,” he added.
After a two-year hiatus, the prestigious awards makes its return to offer a higher standard of recognition to companies and individuals who have excelled and progressed in the business landscape between United Kingdom and Malaysia. The Awards reflect the growth, stride, and achievement of any company or individual in relevant industries, hence further exemplifying the relevancy of being recognised as a pioneer or industry leader. Some of the previous winners from 2019 include renowned brands such as Sports Direct, Sunway Medical Center, PwC Malaysia, Capital DK, and Teach for Malaysia.
Jennifer Lopez, Chief Executive Officer of the BMCC said, “Returning to a resemblance of normalcy, the Business Excellence Awards 2022 look to celebrate the success and noteworthy strides of UK and Malaysian businesses in the respective categories as well as advance trade and commerce relations between the two countries.
This year, the BMCC will celebrate success through seven awards categories. Companies have begun submitting their nominations for the available categories, vying for a prestigious solid pewter accolade custom-made by Royal Selangor.
