The highly anticipated Shortlist for the Business Book Awards 2020 has been announced for top business books published over the past year. Authors, publishers and business figures gathered at a buzzing shortlist reveal party to celebrate the incredible breadth, diversity and quality of business book publishing in the UK and across the globe.
Founder of the Awards, Lucy McCarraher, opened the evening, paying tribute to the amazing entries and judging team: “The Business Book Awards are now in their 3rd year and it was really exciting to see almost double the entries this year than last year – authors and publishers are seeing the huge potential of having their books shortlisted. We’re very much about diversity this year and we’re very proud to be able to showcase books celebrating diversity across the spectrum. Last year we introduced a special award for an exceptional book by a woman and this year we have seen the number of women entries increase from 30% to 40%. For 2020, we have introduced a special award for a book that promotes diversity and we were thrilled to see such a brilliant shortlist for this category.”
The winner of Business Book Awards 2019 Pippa Malmgrem, author of The Leadership Lab, went on to speak about the incredible impact last year’s award has had for her both personally and professionally.
Alan Davidson, founder and co-director of Canterbury accounting firm Pentins Business Advisers Ltd, has been shortlisted for the 2020 Business Book Awards for his book “Achieve Your Business Vision” in the Business Self Development category.
Aimed at aspiring entrepreneurs and small business owners, the book draws on over 25 years’ experience working directly with entrepreneurs, to provide tools, tactics and expert advice, to help accelerate business success. Alan was compelled to write this book because he has seen many promising entrepreneurs struggle to fulfil their initial expectations, as he realised there is little to no education out there on how to run a profitable business.
The Business Book Awards celebrate the best in business book publishing and the winners of the 2020 Business Book Awards will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony attended by leading names in the business and publishing worlds on the evening of 23rd March at 8 Northumberland Avenue, London.
