Laura McMillan, Coventry City of Culture @coventry2021

In October 2015, Laura moved to the newly formed Coventry City of Culture Trust to coordinate the citywide bid to be UK City of Culture 2021 overseeing all aspects of the process from bid writing, relationship management, events programmes and governance.

Since Coventry was awarded the title in December 2017, Laura has taken the role of Director of Operations and Legacy overseeing the running of the charity and delivery of the 2021 year and beyond.

The Judges found it extremely difficult to choose between our Finalists. The Judges chose Laura as the Winner because… she led her team to achieve great things for local businesses and the wider community.
