The countdown has begun...

After dozens of judging visits and intense deliberation, the winners of this year's EDP Business Awards will be revealed on Friday.

The finalists in our eight categories will gather at the Lancaster Suite of the Holiday Inn Norwich North for the showpiece event of the business calendar, which is held in association with Anglian Water.

The final honour of the night is the award of the title of Barclays Corporate Business of the Year - an award that has keenly contested and coveted by all our finalists over the years.

In this video clip, Tim Seeley of Barclays Corporate, who has helped judge the EDP Business of the Year for the last two decades, gives his thoughts on the awards.
