19 March 2015 | Royal Institute of British Architects, London #FTBOLDNESS

In the business world, boldness matters more than ever... 

In this volatile and unpredictable environment, the need for business to be bold has never been greater: the need for managers to think and plan beyond the short term; the need for work forces to embrace change; the need for companies, large and small, to consider how to build sustainable enterprises in a world where competition is tougher than ever. This is the context for the FT ArcelorMittal Boldness in Business Awards, now celebrating their seventh year. Since their inception, the awards have established themselves as the premier accolades in their category, thanks to their global reach and the impressive credentials of our eight-member judging panel. 

The awards will feature candidates from Europe, North and South America, the Middle Eastand Asia-Pacific. Winners are selected by a panel of experts including Lionel Barber, Editor of the Financial Times and Lakshmi Mittal, Chairman & Chief Executive of ArcelorMittal, who base their decision on a shortlist drawn up by the FT's global network of bureau chiefs and senior journalists. Previous award winners include Moya Greene of Royal Mail, Ivan Glasenberg of Glencore, Michael Woodford MBE formerly of Olympus Alan Mulally of Ford, Sergio Marchionne, who spearheaded the turnaround at Fiat and Chrysler; the innovators at Apple, Twitter, Google and Groupon; the intrepid explorers at Tullow Oil; Vale, the Brazilian mining giant; and Huawei, the telecoms group; and Suntech, the solar energy pioneers, both from China.
