Celebrations all round at The Business Book Awards 2022

May 19 2022

This week saw the unveiling of the much-anticipated winners of The Business Book Awards 2022 announced at its Annual Gala Dinner in central London.

We were delighted to be the PR partner for the awards again this year and thrilled that many of our authors were shortlisted and four took home an award including Bernard Marr who won in two categories and took home the overall book of the year prize!

The event was held at the lavish 8 Northumberland Avenue just off of Trafalgar Square and was a glitzy night with a rainbow of drinks on offer and the most delicious Indian cuisine!

There were 300 entries into this year’s awards with authors from around the world entering books on topics from leadership, to diversity and inclusion to advice for start-ups and change and sustainability.

The shortlist of 116 had been decided by a panel of expert judges and revealed at an event in Birmingham earlier this year.

The judges had picked one overall winner from the winners of the categories and were delighted to announce Business Trends in Practice: The 25 + Technologies that are Redefining Organizations won Business Book of the Year 2022.

Winner, Bernard Marr said: “I’m so excited and incredibly humbled to win the Business Book of the Year 2022 award among so many amazing entries. I would like to thank the organisers and sponsors of the awards and everyone involved in creating the book, especially the amazing team at Wiley. It’s so wonderful to get recognition for something I am so passionate about: sharing my ideas and experiences about future trends in business and technology.”

Founder of the Business Book Awards, Lucy McCarraher said: “This year is the fifth anniversary of the Business Book Awards and a significant milestone in that everything has doubled in scale since we started. We had 300 entries in 14 categories – up from 150 entries in 6 categories in Year One. Our judging panel has doubled to 40 experts in business, writing and publishing and they shortlisted books by exactly 58 female and 58 male authors, giving us perfect gender parity! The winners and highly commended books this year have been of a stunningly high standard and we have never before had an author win two categories (with two different books) and the Business Book of the Year. Many congratulations to Bernard Marr, and all the other winners!”
