Clive Bawden, Director of Look After Business, a venture which helps unlock barriers to growth for small and medium sized businesses, has been confirmed as a judge at the finals of the 2019 Spectator magazine Economic Disruptor Awards.

The Spectator’s Economic Disruptor of the Year Awards 2019, sponsored by Julius Baer, celebrates innovative businesses throughout the UK that are disrupting their markets and have the potential for rapid growth, nationally and internationally.

Bawden will be one of three judges, joining Mark Embley, regional manager for the Awards sponsor Julius Baer and Juliet Barratt, co-founder of the Grenade brand of ‘healthy snacks’, now a multimillion pound business, alongside Martin Vander Weyer, business editor of the Spectator magazine.

“I am delighted to have been asked to join this elite group of judges,” said Bawden, “particularly given the quality of the finalists in this category and the prestige and heritage of these awards.”
