The man behind the most prestigious business events in the UK is set to be the main speaker at the annual Moray Women in Business Awards later this year.
Josh Littlejohn founded the Scottish Business Awards which is now regarded as the largest and the most influential event in the UK.
Over 1700 business leaders attend the awards – representing over £100billion in turnover and attracting speakers such as Sir Richard Branson and former US president Bill Clinton.
Mr Littlejohn is also co-founder of ‘Social-Bite’, a social business that ensures that no matter how large it gets no single individual will get rich as 100% of its profits go to charity. A quarter of the workforce are made up of people with homeless backgrounds.

“Hopefully he will inspire lots of women to enter the competition and perhaps give some top tips for making a winning entry!”
Mr Littlejohn will speak about the Scottish Business Awards and ‘Social-Bite’ at the Moray Women in Business Awards in the Mansfield Hotel on Saturday, October 26.
Ahead of that event the Moray Women in Business Awards will be launched later this month. There are three categories of Awards – Moray Business Woman of the year, Most Enterprising Business of the year, and Member of Achievement.
