Countdown begins for CBN Young Dragon Awards open call for submissions

The countdown has started for the open call for submissions for the CBN Young Dragon Awards to begin.

The Committee responsible for the exciting upcoming Awards has held its first meeting and recently revealed that the open call will begin after Easter 2024.

The CBN Young Dragon Awards is an annual event honouring professionals/executives under 40 who have demonstrated outstanding achievements, leadership prowess and a commitment to having a positive impact on their companies and on the broader business community.

Dragons are majestic creatures that have resonated in various cultures, symbolizing many elements, amongst which the most prevalent are power, strength, wisdom, luck, knowledge, hope and rebirth.

The symbol of the dragon encourages self-discovery and personal growth, urging individuals to embrace their inner power and release their true potential. The dragon embodies the journey of transformation, which empowers them to rise above all limitations and obstacles.

Dragons are full of confidence yet, at the same time, they demonstrate compassion and grace.

This is why the dragon is the symbol that we have chosen for the Cyprus Business News awards that celebrate young talent, potential and early achievement in business, CBN Young Dragon Awards!
