BizX Winners 2024

The esteemed annual BizX awards ceremony, with renowned broadcaster and entertainer Stephen Mulhern as master of ceremonies, celebrated the noteworthy achievements, growth and contributions of businesses and their owners from around the UK and EMEA regions.

The BizX awards, in its 13th year, acknowledged a multitude of successful businesses across a diverse range of sectors with Iconic Digital – a digital marketing agency in London, receiving the landmark recognition of Best Overall Business.

“Winning this award is such a massive achievement, I don’t really have the words to describe it!” says Iconic Digital Chief Executive, Steve Pailthorpe. “What I can say is thank you to the team. The dedication and resilience of every single member of our team – who have worked so hard over the last two years to get us where we are now – this is for you, thank you so much!”

Every year, ActionCOACH, the world’s number one business coaching firm, host BizX to recognise and honour the entrepreneurship, passion, risk-taking and results of some of the best companies and business owners. The unparalleled two-day event brings hundreds of driven entrepreneurs together to share ideas, build relationships and learn valuable insights from their peers. This year the conference welcomed speakers such as double-Olympic gold medallist Dame Kelly Holmes and business investor and TV personality Deborah Meaden, sharing their experiences to mark the conference as a truly momentous event in the business calendar.

For ActionCOACH UK’s Managing Director, Julie Wagstaff, the awards acknowledge the best of the best in business. “It is a great achievement to be nominated for an award at BizX, let alone win one! The awards truly recognise the best when it comes to business growth, impact, innovation and culture. Congratulations to all the winners and finalists – every year becomes harder and harder to judge the outstanding entries we receive.

“Each year, BizX keeps getting bigger and bigger – 2024 being no exception with over 1,000 delegates! Our goal has always been to deliver an event that produces oven-ready guidance for business owners, which is helping so many to transform their business for themselves and the people around them.”
