SBD Business Impact Awards - Finalists and Winners 2021

SBD Business Impact Awards - Finalists and Winners 2021

We are delighted to announce the finalists and overall winners of this year’s Business Impact Awards.

SBD Business Impact Awards 2021 have been designed to celebrate companies and individuals who excelled as Sandyford Business District worked its way through the Covid-19 crisis last year and continue to do so. The awards recognise both the herculean efforts undertaken by companies and individuals to adjust and keep operating under pandemic conditions as well as those who have continued to advance the agenda on broader trends that will stay with us beyond the era of Covid-19.

Winners were selected by an independent judging panel chaired by Sandyford Business District Commercial Manager, Ger Corbett, who was joined by representatives of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council (Margaret Coles, Green Business Officer), Digital Business Ireland (Lorraine Higgins, Secretary General) and Retail Excellence (Duncan Graham, Managing Director).
