Britain’s Got Business Talent

The IOD Awards celebrate the best of Britain’s business talent in terms of exceptional leadership and good governance. The Director of The Year Awards recognizes business innovators at an event in London’s The Brewery, hosted by Sir Trevor McDonald.

Charlotte Valeur, Chair of the Institute of Directors, said: “In this time of great change for business and society, enterprising and responsible leadership has never been more important. These are the qualities that Director of the Year Award finalists embody, and it is a privilege to be able to give these individuals the recognition they deserve. Congratulations to all of those who have made it to this stage, you provide us with confidence in the ongoing strength of the UK’s director community.”

Brendan, who was recently announced as Irish Student Entrepreneur of the Year founded the business alongside his studies at Queen’s University, Belfast.

Since its foundation in 2018, Machine Eye has received critical acclaim: this has included being a winner of Catalyst INVENT; the Ireland Funds Innovation Award; and an “One to Watch” award. The business also featured as a finalist in the Santander UK Enterprise awards, while recently being recognized for International Innovation, at the New Zealand National Fieldays exhibition.

The finalists were chosen from the hundreds of directors that entered into one of the 11 heats across the UK, in 14 different categories.

The expert judging panel will now convene to decide the overall winners to be announced at the awards ceremony on Friday 18 October 2019 at The Brewery
