Following the success of last year’s sell-out event, Future Faces is back for its 5th dinner and awards which will take place on Friday 20th September at the ICC.

The event acknowledges the remarkable achievements of all Greater Birmingham’s young professionals.

She said: “It has been a life-changing experience. It has provided an unparalleled platform for my development, opened doors to incredible opportunities, and allowed me to join the important conversations taking place about the future of our city and how young professionals can, and should, play a key role.

“Whether you are instilling change at a large corporate, teaching, working in fundraising, or driving your own business forward, applying for the Future Faces awards could give you the springboard into the next chapter of your career.”

There are nine sectors that make up the awards which include:
