Talented Young Italians Awards UK

The first edition of the “Talented Young Italians” Award has acknowledged talented young Italians who excel in their careers working in the UK, and who are not only leaders but an example of leadership to other young people. The award is an initiative of the Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry for the UK - in collaboration with the Italian Embassy in London and with the patronage of H.E. Pasquale Terracciano, the Italian Ambassador.

The award ceremony will be held on the evening of the 20th of November 2014 at Church House on the occasion of a gala reception for the 36th Annual Conference, which will take place on the following day. At the reception will be present speakers of the Annual Conference such as Pier Carlo Padoan, Italian Minister of Economy and Finance, John Elkann, Chairman, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV, and Lorenzo Simonelli, CEO, GE Oil and Gas.

The aim of this award is to bring to public attention the individuals who have succeeded in their endeavour in the UK, keeping at the same time a link with Italy and encouraging exchanges between the two countries.  Talented young Italians, who excel in their careers working in the UK, are not only leaders but an example to other young people, transmitting their enthusiasm, their knowledge and their skills to others.

The most distinguished individuals will be awarded in each of the following categories:

• Finance and Services;

• Industry and Commerce;

• Research and Innovation;

• Media and Communication.

 Requisites for the award are:

• Under 40 years;

 Scouting for valid candidates is conducted by the Chamber of Commerce with the aid of Italian professional and academic associations in the UK and with the contribution of the Italian community. Applications have been evaluated by a committee of senior representatives, covering the different categories of awards.
