Lean Business Ireland Awards Night - 8th October City West

About the Awards

The Lean Business Ireland Awards 2020 will take place in Citywest Hotel, Dublin on the 8th October. Primarily designed to recognise and celebrate enterprise excellence achievements in Ireland, the award’s ceremony will also be an opportunity to socialise and network with other Continuous Improvement Teams.

Whether a large, medium or small organisation, working in any sector or  a government department; the  Lean Business Ireland Awards are open to organisations that  can demonstrate excellence in their strive towards a competitive  operation and want recognition at a national level for that  journey.

Lean Business Ireland aims to position Ireland as the recognised centre of lean & enterprise excellence globally and this award ceremony will help to showcase how companies are working towards enterprise excellence in Ireland, striving for competitiveness.

Shortlisted entrants will have their national profiles listed just by making the final, while winners will receive coverage in the national media. In addition, the team or individual get to return to their organisation recognised as winners and sharing their journey with others.  There will be a beautifully exclusively designed trophy, which will find pride of place in any reception area for the winning entries.

There is no charge to enter the Lean Business Ireland Awards ceremony, the deadline for entries will be the 31st August 2020. As such, don’t delay in submitting your entry!

Superb very well organised event! We had a great time attending and looking forward to the next one. Thanks for the host and everyone who attended.

Just a quick big thank you for hosting such a wonderful event last night. It was really well run, and think that the Black Tie event certainly added to the occasion. We are very proud of our award, and celebrated its presentation at today’s site team meeting.

Once again, we are very honoured to have received our award, and look forward to attending again next time.

Being a judge on the 2018 Lean Business Ireland Awards was one of the most inspiring roles I have taken in recent times. It was a privilege to get an insight into the incredible work being done by small, medium and large enterprises across the country. Their work, collectively, is changing the status quo and how we do business in Ireland. It is positioning our country to be an example of best practice across the world. I was very proud to be involved. Many thanks to Breda O’Toole, Richard Keegan, Senan O Riain, Ronan McGlade and all the team at Lean Business Ireland and Box Media for the opportunity.

I just wanted to thank you so much for a wonderful evening last Thursday. The venue, food, entertainment, company and of course the ceremony for the award winners was really done so well and professionally.

It is great to experience an evening so full of the ‘good feel factor'.
