What are the HSBC Business Thinking Awards?

Business Thinking is HSBC's initiative to find and reward the UK's best business thinkers, and to enable businesses to exchange ideas, create new contacts and of course, challenge their thinking. 3681 businesses across the UK submitted applications to the Business Thinking 2012 Initiative. 54 Regional Finalists were selected by HSBC and invited to attend exciting Thought Exchange trips (Hong Kong, New York, Sao Paulo and Dubai). James Ishmaev-Young of Sonic Distribution attended the Sao Paulo Thought Exchange. 

On their return to the UK, the Regional Finalists pitched to a panel of judges, who selected two Regional Winners per region yielding 18 Regional Winners. On the 19th June 2012, the 18 Regional Winners were invited to attend the HSBC Business Thinking International Insights event. On the morning of the 20th June 2012, the six finalists were announced.

On the evening of the 20th June 2012, the overall winner of the HSBC Business Thinking Awards 2012 will be announced. Keep an eye on the Sonic Distribution social media channels (Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus) for latest HSBC Business Thinking Awards 2012 News.

Update: Sonic Distribution made the final 6 but did n't receive the crown. Congratulations to Advanced Sensors. Still a wonderful result for sE and Sonic Distribution.
