Vistage to sponsor the Scale-up Business of the Year Award


The world’s largest CEO coaching and peer advisory organisation Vistage has been announced as the sponsor for the Scale-up Business of the Year award at the 2020 Amazon ScaleUp Awards.

Vistage’s core objective is to improve CEO performance, both personally and professionally. For more than 60 years, working with more than 100,000 CEOs globally, Vistage has helped its members to make better decisions and achieve better results. They have clearly identified that the highest performing CEOs, those who are consistently growing faster than their peers, are doing things differently than the rest.

This is why Vistage is the perfect fit for the Scale-up Business of the Year – an award that celebrates high-growth companies.

The Amazon ScaleUp Awards’ independent panel of judges were looking for a company with at least ten employees, with at least a £1m turnover – but has seen an average annualised growth of 20% or more in the past three years.

The judges were looking for evidence of investment into building a strong management team, evidence of a growth mindset and a commitment to building collaborations. They also looked for strong financial performance and a strategy for future expansion.

Founder of the Amazon ScaleUp Awards Andrew Scott comments: “Vistage is an incredible business that helps CEOs and MDs scale their businesses to new heights and so having them sponsoring the Scale-up Award will add to the prestige of being shortlisted for this category.”

Managing Director of Vistage UK and Ireland, Geoff Lawrence commented: “Scaling your business is more than just an accelerated growth phase, it’s an entirely different business environment. Making that transition can be difficult, so our members value the opportunity to seek perspectives and share advice with a group of people who have found themselves in a similar situation.

“We have a great affinity for scaleup business owners and we are delighted to be able to support this prestigious industry award.”

There are still limited sponsorship opportunities available for the Awards, which take place on March 20th 2020 at the Hilton Hotel on Park Lane, London. Download the sponsorship pack here.
