Adepitan MBE to host Springboard Awards
Springboard UK has revealed that Paralympian champion, TV presenter and journalist Ade Adepitan MBE will present its Awards for Excellence 2022 on 7th April. More than 40 leading hospitality businesses have made the shortlist for the Awards.
Held at the Science Museum’s Illuminate venue, the ceremony will reward outstanding achievements in hospitality, celebrating its finest individuals and businesses. Adepitan will reveal winners across 16 categories, recognising everything from employee wellbeing and career development initiatives, to best community engagement and business innovation.
Adepitan said: “We’ve all seen some amazing things happen in our restaurants, cafés, pubs, bars and hotels over the last year and this has been in spite of staff shortages and restrictions. I’m also in awe of the work that Springboard does to help young, unemployed and underprivileged people in our communities to get skills, build their confidence and find lifelong careers in the hospitality industry.”
Springboard CEO Chris Gamm added: “We’re delighted that Ade can join our celebrations. Having such an inspiring and engaging host is the perfect addition to what is shaping up to be a very special event in the hospitality calendar.”
