We received many impressive and outstanding nominations for individuals in Wales (in all sectors and at all levels of responsibility) whose leadership is courageous, inspirational and transformational. They were a privilege to read and a challenge to shortlist.”

This is the 15th and concluding year of the Leading Wales Awards®. They will culminate with the Awards presentations as part of a legacy dinner at Hilton Cardiff on 26th September 2019.
