Event Details

The sixteenth edition of our annual Banking Awards will be held on Friday, 13th May, 2022. At the Serena Hotel, Nairobi starting at 6.30 pm. This will be the 16th consecutive year that we have held these awards.

This will be the 16th consecutive edition of these awards organized and hosted by Think Business Limited, a strategic research and competitive intelligence company specializing on the financial sector.

Our main objective in the Banking Awards 2022, is to encourage competition and drive innovation, prudence and stability, in the banking sector by celebrating achievements made by the banking sector under very difficult circumstances.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we learnt that accelerating digital transformation — the use of technology to radically improve performance by applying digital advances such as analytics, mobility, social media, smart devices and infusing these with ERP technologies to improve the internal processes of the organization, value proposition and the customer experience — is the panacea to not just surviving these difficult economic times but also to cutting a competitive edge in the market.

It is imperative that banks embrace the digital transformation agenda so that they can lead their economies to recover quickly and building back better.

By showcasing the best performers in the industry we aim to present the banking public with an opportunity to make informed banking decisions. We welcome all industry players to participate in the awards.

How to submit entries

  • Entries will be submitted on our secure platform ThinkAwards. To submit entities, each bank provide names and emails of at least two people who will have access to the platform.
