These awards celebrate and recognise success and inspire others to do well. Birmingham is a beautiful city with a proud past and a great future with some excellent young people and some great universities and colleges like Birmingham University, Aston and Birmingham City University.
The city is well connected with a great international airport and is at the heart of the UK road and rail network. It is second to none for shopping and arts facilities like Symphony Hall. There are also the NEC and ICC, indeed global facilities. Global businesses like Cadbury and Jaguar Land Rover are synonymous with Birmingham, and now HSBC is bringing its UK headquarters to the city.
