This year's High Sheriff's Awards has seen the introduction of two new categories - The Cheshire Business Leaders Award for the Outstanding Cheshire and Warrington Business Leader as well as one for Young Entrepreneur. Following a call from the panel of judges, Adrian has discovered that he is on the shortlist for the award and has attended an interview to answer further questions about his leadership skills and the growth of Blueleaf. The award recognises an exceptional business person who has shown outstanding vision and leadership at the helm of a successful and growing business which has also contributed to the development and reputation of the whole sub-region. All three finalists have been invited to the awards ceremony in March at The University of Chester when the winner will be announced.

The winners of both Cheshire Business Leaders Awards will also be invited to attend the annual Cheshire Ambassadors lunch at the Chester Grosvenor Hotel and Spa, hosted by His Grace, The Duke of Westminster, the University’s Chancellor.
