2021 will mark the 19th year PwC has been involved in the MEN Awards during which time we have met some fantastic companies from across the region. Being able to see these businesses develop, grow and respond to the many challenges, particularly over the last twelve months, makes us feel proud to be able to play our part in the North West business community.
The calibre of businesses in the North West have a lot to be proud of. I would encourage people to enter the awards and show that their confidence, resilience and hard work continue to be fundamental to their future success and that of the region. It’s always rewarding to see the quality of the entries into the MEN Awards and the broad mix of businesses represented which demonstrates the quality of the talent this region continues to attract.
There’s no doubt that the North West remains a vibrant and attractive region in which to invest, attracting new businesses, investment and creating employment opportunities drawing in diverse talent.

Manchester’s ability to both nurture and attract some of the world’s best businesses across a range of sectors is testament to its longstanding reputation as an entrepreneurial hotspot.
This is as true today as it was 200 years ago and it is part of the reason why Manchester is recognised as an excellent place to do business, not just nationally but also on the global stage.
The city has an abundance of talent, energy and innovation. CMS is one of the largest corporate law firms in the world, and working with high quality companies is in our DNA. Accordingly, we are delighted to join forces with other sponsors to support the MEN Business of the Year Awards for the first time and we look forward to meeting and interviewing some exceptional companies.
