PwC continues strategic partnership with Emerging Europe Leaders’ Meeting and Awards
PwC Central & Eastern Europe (CEE), the professional services organisation, continues to serve as a strategic partner of the Emerging Europe Leaders’ Meeting and Awards. PwC experts have contributed to the awards as jurors and will participate in the roundtable discussions and high-level panels leading up to the awards ceremony, which will be held at the London headquarters of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development on 28 June 2019.
The partnership is again led by Agnieszka Gajewska, PwC CEE Public Sector & Infrastructure Leader.
“We are proud to serve as a strategic partner to the Emerging Europe Awards for the second year in a row. We believe that the mission of the Emerging Europe Awards is a great fit with our purpose of building trust in society and solving important problems. With a regional practice that spans across Central & Eastern Europe, we are engaged in many projects and initiatives that help organisations in our countries to be successful. It is great to have the chance to help shine a light on worthy organisations, companies and people in our region through our partnership with the Emerging Europe Leaders’ Meeting and Awards. I’m looking forward to some interesting discussions and a great celebration,” said Ms Gajewska.
The awards are organised by Emerging Europe, a London-based news, intelligence and community platform, committed to boosting the social and economic development of 23 countries of Central and South Eastern Europe and the Caucasus and raising awareness about the region.
The Leaders’ Meeting and Awards have been created to build on Emerging Europe’s mission of fostering economic and social growth in the region. The awards are a high-profile, prestigious programme to recognise success stories, leading projects and best practice from across CEE, encouraging thought leadership and excellence in 23 countries of the region.
The awards, presented by Kasia Madera from BBC World News, will acknowledge local authorities and businesses which have demonstrated excellence in three main areas: raising awareness, social progress and economic development. The juries judging the submitted projects – including PwC experts — have extensive experience across a range of sectors and are supported by a dedicated team.
This year’s awards programme attracted almost 1,000 applicants from across the entire region. In addition, Emerging Europe ran two research projects: the Investment Promotion Report, which looked at the performance of 23 investment promotion agencies; and the Business-Friendly City Perception Index, a survey carried out amongst 25 global locations experts and foreign direct investment advisers.
Andrew Wrobel, founding partner, strategy and content at Emerging Europe, said: “I am very proud that PwC continues as a strategic partner. PwC is recognised as a leading advisory firm in the region, and is well known for its efforts to develop the skills and expertise of the business community in CEE. I believe that their contribution to the process will further raise the profile of our project and be of great value to the participating entities.”
