This year Business Engagement were announced as winners of the ‘Team of the Year’ award at the 2018 Birmingham University Awards for Tremendous Achievement (BUAFTAs.) The awards celebrate the incredible contributions of Professional Services staff – both as individuals and teams – across the University.

Gurmit Kler, Director of the Business Engagement Team said, ‘The result is fantastic, we are thrilled to have won, especially given the quality of the other nominees. We have been on an incredible journey since we started in 2013 and have worked tirelessly to grow the University’s engagement with industry. In 2017, we helped to establish the £2.5m Lloyds Banking Group Centre for Responsible Business, undertook a comprehensive partnership with the Confederation for British Industry and launched a successful campaign called the 10 Ways We’re Transforming Business. We are looking forward to another year of uniting industry and academia to drive innovative solutions to today’s challenges.’
