• Business Book Awards 2018 shortlist announced

        • The organisers of the Business Book Awards have announced the 36 authors that have made the 2018 shortlist. The awards celebrate the best UK business books published between 1st January and 31st December 2017.

          Marking its inaugural year, the awards have attracted 150 entries from a variety of publishers. Seventeen different publishers have made the shortlist, with entries ranging from independent publishers such as The Authority Guide, through to household names such as Penguin Random House and Bloomsbury.

          The founder of the awards is Lucy McCarraher (pictured), author of 11 books, and co-founder and Managing Editor of Rethink Press. She said, “we’re overwhelmed by the quality and quantity of the books we received this year. It was an extremely difficult task for the judges to narrow down this shortlist and, as a result, we’ve even had to create an additional category – the Judge’s Choice – for books that didn’t quite fit the categories that they had entered under, but were of such a high standard that we felt they should be recognised.”

          The nominated books are divided into seven categories: Startup Inspiration, Selling the Dream, Leading the Team, Embracing Change, Thought Leader, Self-Development, and the Judge’s Choice.

          Safaraz Ali, the founder of ThinkFest, the organisers behind this initiative added, “given this is our first ever Business Book Awards event, I’m more than delighted to have such a high calibre of entries. We’re thrilled with the reception that we’ve received from both writers and publishers. I’m looking forward to the winners being announced in March.”

          The Business Book Awards ceremony will take place on March 16 2018 at The Grange City Hotel, London. Tickets for this event can be purchased through the website: https://www.businessbookawards.co.uk/product/book-your-ticket/.
