Meet Our Sponsors
We’re excited to announce our incredible sponsors for BYPY17!
We’re very excited to announce Birmingham Metropolitan College as this year’s headline sponsor!
“At BMet we believe the Greater Birmingham area should be known for its ability to grow its own talent. At BMet, as home to the UK’s first business professional services academy, we encourage all our students, from 16-60, to aim higher, break down barriers and realise their dreams.
In sponsoring BYPY, we echo these sentiments.
We are proud that some of our team, Governing Body, Fellows and business partners are former BYPY overall winners and finalists. These individuals have described their BYPY experience as ‘life-changing’, ‘career making’ and a ‘lifetime opportunity’. As leaders and as employers, they have been role models for our students and are continuing to inspire future generations across industry.
Whilst BYPY puts the spotlight on those in the professional services sector, BMet also sees it as a way for businesses to consider their recruitment needs going forward. Our Greater Birmingham Professional Services Academy works directly with employers to develop and deliver training programmes that ensure we continue attracting and developing ‘our own’ for their benefit of our economy.
By doing so, we hope professionals will enjoy many more of these ‘wow’ moments through BYPY. On top of that, we will continue to showcase and celebrate just how our region is leading the way with a growth in our skills and an unrivalled pool of talent.
Good luck to all this year’s nominees – we are inspired by your achievements.”
Our sponsors for this year’s Aspiring Talent category are Wesleyan!

It is for this reason we are proud to be involved with and support Birmingham Young Professional of the Year. Our Chief Financial Officer Ahmed Farooq is also the immediate past Chair of BPS Birmingham and we are delighted to continue our support and interest in the network and this prestigious event.
Wesleyan is a proud sponsor of the Aspiring Talent category and wish to congratulate all of the nominees. We are an organisation that is keen to help young careers thrive through our apprenticeship programme, educational partnerships and involvement in this award. Each of the nominees should be very proud of their achievements so early in their careers and we wish them the best of luck in this award and their future endeavours.”
