Welcome to the All-Ireland Business Foundation's
Annual Awards

Every year Croke Park plays host to the annual All-Ireland Business Awards. All finalists are Business All-Star Accredited companies and have been proven through a rigorous judging process, to be on merit, worthy recipients of the accolade.

The awards are divided into numerous categories, ranging from Innovative Business & International Business to CEO of the Year. They are a highly sought after reward by contestants as they demonstrate the dedication and commitment of companies and individuals to superior performance.

Judging and Score Card

Using a scorecard the judges whittle down the original nominations of applicants to a shortlist of finalists among the 21 categories. In keeping with the spirit of Croke Park and the competition, the awards final round of judging took place on the day of the 5th All-Ireland Business Summit on Thursday, May 2nd.

Each finalist was interviewed by an independent panel of experts chaired by Dr. Briga Hynes (Kemmy Business School, University of Limerick) & Deputy Chair, Kieran Ring, CEO-Global Institute of Logistics.

The finalists score from their Business All-Star Accreditation audit was combined with the final score from the live judging and relied upon by the judges in coming to their final decision. The results of category winners and the 2019 overall winner of Brian McEniff Enterprise Cup was announced at an exclusive supper beginning at 5.30pm on May 2nd.
