BEST AWARDS BY AN ASSOCIATION
Association for Project Management (APM) – APM Project Management Awards 2019
The project management profession is crucial for delivering value to the economy – it generates £156.5bn of annual GVA in the UK – but it is rarely recognised for its contribution.
We at the Association for Project Management (APM) wanted a bigger, bolder awards ceremony that really celebrated innovation on a global scale. As the only chartered body in project management in the world, we want to be seen as the real champion of new thinking and best practice.
The APM Project Management Awards have been in existence since 2005, but they really arrived in 2019.
With refreshed categories, digitisation of the operational processes, a new, prestigious brand and an enhanced guest experience, the 2019 APM Project Management Awards was set up for success – and did not disappoint.
Our winners included a maternity technology project that is reducing the number of stillbirths in its region, a PM that delivered a transformation project after two spinal surgeries and projects that promote sustainability and better mental health. They really matter.
One finalist said: “I am proud to be part of it. It has motivated me to work even harder and try and make a difference for the better.”

GSMA GLOMO Awards at MWC Barcelona
The GLOMO Awards (The Global Mobile Awards) are the pinnacle of the mobile technology industry. Run by the GSMA, the award Ceremony concludes at MWC Barcelona.
It has never been a more exciting time for the connectivity industry than right now; traditional players are completely re-evaluating the very DNA of their companies, start-ups are redefining the possible, providers are innovating at an unprecedented rate, the media are excited and the industry is ready.
In 1995 we applauded the world’s first flip phone, in 2020 we’re talking about the first 5G-enabled, foldable smartphone. A quarter of a century has changed the mobile industry beyond the early tech pioneer’s wildest dreams.
The #GLOMOAwards was set to return to MWC Barcelona 2020. With a revamped ceremony to recognise and honour the individuals, the teams, the organisations and the partnerships which have changed the meaning of what it is to be connected.
But then the corona virus struck and in an unprecedented decision MWC Barcelona was cancelled. The night of the decision the GLOMO team mourned, but the next day – they organised and set to continue to execute the mobile industry’s most coveted moment.
Institution of Engineering and Technology – Churchill Medal Award
The origins of the Churchill medal date back to 1946 when Sir Winston Churchill gave his name to an award that would recognise the significant engineering contributions of individuals during World War II. The Medal became the Society of Engineers most prestigious award and continues to pay tribute to the teams and individuals for their outstanding engineering achievement.
In 2011 it was reinstated with the support of seven Professional Engineering Institutions (PEIs). Lead by the Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET), the PEI’s set about creating a stronger identity for the medal.
The medal now recognises Achievement in Engineering and Technical Advancement in support of the development and use of capability to support Military Operations/Readiness.
The first presentation of the re-instated award in 2012 was at a routine IET defence lecture compared to 2019’s outstanding reception and dinner for 160 guests. The awards have been presented by Rt. Hon Sir Nicholas Soames, Rupert Soames OBE and Vice Admiral Sir Simon Lister as well being broadcast via British Forces Broadcasting Service Television.
By 2021, the PEIs hope to grow the event further and increase attendance to 200 guests, with a member of the royal household invited to present the award.
