BUSINESS AWARDS

GATWICK DIAMOND BUSINESS AWARDS 2016

The Gatwick Diamond Business Awards celebrate people and businesses who have shown innovation and inspiration in their work and have demonstrated a real commitment to the sub-region. Any business that is located in, or trades in, the Gatwick Diamond region can enter – you do not need to be a member of any particular business organisation to enter. The awards have become one of the region’s premier business occasions celebrating the best of the best across the Gatwick Diamond. This will be the eighth year for the Awards, and the whole event is gaining ever-increasing attention in the region. In fact, you could say this is our Centenary Year as we will be awarding our 100th Award during the course of the evening … but who will it go to?

Sanjeev Bhaskar For 2016, Sanjeev Bhaskar will be the host for the evening. Sanjeev gained notoriety as creator and performer of the BBC hit series Goodness Gracious Me. His film roles have included It’s A Wonderful Life, London Boulevard and The Zero Theorem. Sanjeev led the cast in the BAFTA award-winning television series Indian Doctor, which garnered record ratings and critical acclaim, and he has also appeared in the West End as King Arthur in Eric Idle’s Spamalot. Sanjeev wrote and starred in The Kumars at No. 42, which had global success, winning two Emmys, a BAFTA nomination, a British Comedy Award and the Bronze Rose at Montreaux. The family recently returned to our screens on Sky, and featured guests include Daniel Radcliffe, Chevy Chase, Olivia Colman, Ray Winstone, Rupert Everett, Emilia Fox, Richard E Grant, James Corden, Terry Gilliam and Twiggy. In 2007, Sanjeev embarked on a highly personal journey through modern India with the BBC to commemorate 60 years of Indian independence. His accompanying travel book became a Sunday Times bestseller.
