WBD has been shortlisted for four awards at the Managing Partners' Forum (MPF) Management Excellence Awards 2019. These recognise the high profile thought leadership projects and initiatives the firm has delivered in the last 12 months.

The projects shortlisted include the launch of WBD Advance in the most innovative client service category, the success of the combination to create WBD in the best strategic leadership category, the firm's Brexit Insights Hub and associated campaigns in the best thought leadership category and for best collaboration with an external specialist, the firm has been recognised for its work on Lord Holmes' Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies report.

Organised in collaboration with Havard Business Review and the Financial Times, the MPF Management Excellence Awards celebrate the contributions and achievements in leadership and management of national and international firms. The award ceremony will take place on 5 March in London bringing together more than 400 senior attendees and over 50 finalists.

Jonathan Blair, UK Managing Partner, said:

"2018 was a fantastic year for the firm, celebrating our first full year as WBD and strengthening our ties with our US colleagues through various trade missions. We also delivered valuable campaigns close to home with thought leadership reports on key sectors such as manufacturing and supporting clients with our new Brexit Hub. We launched WBD Advance which provides an innovative new approach to complex business issues and has seen an extremely positive response. We're delighted to have been shortlisted for the awards that recognise these achievements and they are a tribute to the hard work put in by many people across the firm over the past 12 months."
