A host of influential business leaders, international dignities and celebrities came together for the British Herald Business Leadership Awards which were held within the UK for the first time at Rosewood Hotel, earlier this month.
British Herald is an online news and information delivery platform that is committed to delivering worldwide breaking news online, reporting and pushing regional boundaries in the new digital landscape. Manager Director Ansif Ashraf was keen to mark the contributions of achievers across diversified fields. He said: “Celebrating success leads to better success. This acknowledgment is a morale booster which will inspire and motivate others to do more.”
London Mayor Sadiq Khan was honoured ahead of the celebratory evening for his ‘Outstanding Contribution to Society.’ Other winners included MOBO Awards founder Kanya King and Ali Fazal who was recognised for ‘Excellence in Contribution to Global Cinema.’
Ali who is currently shooting for Kenneth Branagh’s Death on the Nile said: “I have always believed in backing stories, the ones that can trigger a change and start a discourse. This award is validation of a much larger objective as I am working towards creating a global community of artists.’’
The evening was also an opportunity to raise awareness and funds for cancer charity Macmillan who partnered with British Herald. HRH Princess Katarina, singer Kanika Kapoor and British actor Preeya Kalidas amongst others were in attendance to show their support.
