Lee Chambers, founder of Essentialise Workplace Wellbeing, in Ribbleton Lane, which provides wellbeing and inclusion training to companies across the UK, is in the running for the Entrepreneur of Excellence category.

He said: “I’m passionate about making an impact through both my business and the social impact work I do personally.

"Everything that we do, from being a trustee of a dementia charity to working in SEND schools, from supporting black social enterprises to speaking on gender equity, I believe inclusion has to empower all under-represented and marginalised groups to increase opportunities and break down barriers. This is something so close to my heart as an autistic black man who manages a chronic illness, and to be recognised nationally is a real honour.”
