Dr Dawn Albery, Head of Birmingham City Business School at BCU said: “We are focused on creating the business people and marketers of the future, so it made complete sense for us to support this fantastic award.
“In a rapidly changing world facing new and complex challenges every day, we need to instil in our marketers the skills and self-confidence to meet those challenges.
“We’re looking forward to seeing the nominations and some of the outstanding work that’s going on here in Birmingham where there’s such a strong creative spirit.
“This event is a perfect opportunity for us to get together as a city and celebrate our achievements in driving Birmingham forwards.
“There are so many exciting developments in the city at the moment – many of which we as a university are a part – and it’s important that the work of businesses of all sizes is recognised in enhancing the profile of Birmingham nationally and internationally.
“It’s also tremendous to get the opportunity to support an event which showcases ‘role model’ businesses to the wider community.”
