The BrandLaureate BestBrands Awards 2022-2023 – A Resplendent Celebration of Brand Champions

 In the dynamic tapestry of business, Branding is the compass guiding companies and leaders. It cultivates trust, sparks recognition, and fuels prosperity by infusing products and services with identity and value. In a grand celebration where brand champions thrive and excellence prevails, The World Brands Foundation (TWBF) yet again made history as it hosted the return of the distinguished hallmark, The BrandLaureate BestBrands Awards 2022-2023, now in its 18th year running. In attendance for tonight’s prestigious event were brand founders, C-level and top executives from esteemed Multinational Companies, Government Linked Companies, Public Listed Companies and Large Corporations who represented their winning brands. 

Behind every success story, we find a tale of unwavering determination, innovative thinking and a commitment to excellence. Championing the theme, “Always Be The Brand Champion, No Matter What, No Matter How, No Matter When!” The BrandLaureate BestBrands Awards 2022-2023 celebrates the remarkable journeys of brand champions who have risen to the challenges and remained steadfast to their purpose and vision. These are trailblazing brands that have not only exceeded expectations but have also set a benchmark by embodying passion, authenticity and the ability to create positive change for both their businesses and society as a whole.

In his opening speech, Prof. Dr. KKJohan, World President of The BrandLaureate shared a profound quote, “Greatness is when you fall and you rise up, that is greatness!” He emphasized that although achieving success is significant, ‘our greatest glory’ lies in the process of overcoming adversity; it is our resilience and determination to stand back up that truly defines our greatness. 

“Today, your brands are a living testament to the power of determination and innovation. You have not only embraced challenges but have used them as stepping stones to success,” he shared as he encouraged the winning recipients to continue to push ahead despite all that they may face in the coming years. Ending his speech, he posed the audience with a challenge, “Don’t be afraid of the fall, don’t be afraid of greatness. Be courageous to step into the ring, to face the challenges head-on, and recognize that the journey won’t always be smooth. But that is greatness attained – in those moments of falling, we find our strength, our determination and our true potential.”
