Celebrating: Ruchi Aggarwal - Director of Business Development, LIBS

For her work in developing the 'Resilient Lincolnshire' campaign during the Pandemic, which supported and inspired the business community, Ruchi was shortlisted as a finalist for the Institute of Directors 'Midlands Director of the Year 2020' award, under the category of ‘Innovation’.

Ruchi recently devised and led the ‘Resilient Lincolnshire’ campaign, which is an innovative digital platform that, throughout the pandemic, supported and inspired the business community. Discussion panels featuring prominent professionals and industry experts attracted large audiences, not only within the County, but across the world.

The success of this campaign attracted the attention of the judging panel, who recognised the innovation, impact and importance of the work undertaken by Ruchi and the Business Development Team at LIBS. The IoD noted that 2020 will go down as one of unprecedented challenge and change and added their congratulations in being shortlisted amongst a high calibre of entries.

On becoming a finalist, Ruchi commented, “Being judged a finalist by an industry body as prestigious as the IOD is an immense honour for me. The past half year has been challenging for all businesses and our resilience as a business school to re-pivot efficiently and offer the industry continued support through it all, has been a highly humbling experience. The impact of what we achieved is a great testimony to the strong and committed team I work with and the focus of the Business School towards excellence.”
