Best Awards Team
C Squared Networks – Festival of Media and M&M Global Awards
C Squared organises a range of award shows targeting the media & marketing industry, with entrants from all over the globe. If you are looking for the ability to handle a high workload, look no further. The main challenge for the Awards team is to work simultaneously on different events (in different stages) as well as within different time zones, as our clients are spread throughout the globe. We wake up discussing with Asia, and go to bed answering to America, while on Sundays we keep in touch with UAE – there is no rest for the Awards team and despite their dedication to work, there will be some clients who we will never be chatting live with – which doesn’t say that we haven’t called Australia or New Zealand late at night. We have two aspects that make our awards team special. One is our diversity, and the other one is that we are an all women power team. But see for yourself in the following team introduction.
Incisive Media – UK IT Awards
Computing events have grown significantly over the last three years as we consistently research and innovate our conference and awards programmes. The UK IT Industry Awards is without doubt the jewel in the crown and is one of the most impressive events in Incisive Media’s calendar, all thanks to the amazing team working hard on making it a huge success every year.
The UK IT Awards team has demonstrated creativity, leadership and innovation while working on this project and is definitely the one to watch as they go above and beyond in making the Awards an unforgettable experience for both sponsors and guests.
Shorty Awards – 8th Annual Shorty Awards
Is it a coincidence that “Shorty Awards” and “best team ever” have the same amount of letters? We choose to believe it’s not. But if that’s not enough to convince you we’re the best team, here’s less than 200 words about why we think we are. Each year, the Shorty Awards are put on by a small, yet mighty team of under 10 people. One benefit to having a small team is that we are able to maintain our image and values while adapting our show to meet the needs of a volatile and evolving industry like social media.
Our work ethic and office environment are a direct product of the mentality and values promoted by our leaders. Few companies located in a place as fast paced and intense as New York City actively make time for office-wide birthday lunches, or bagels on desks on first days of work. In addition to inner-team bonding, we also maintain a close relationships with our attendees through events like cocktail hours, Shorty Stories, and other interpersonal events. Through our involvement and awareness within our industry, we are able to make the Shorty Awards meaningful and important to those competing to win it.
Stroke Association – Life After Stroke Awards
The Life After Stroke Awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of people who have shown remarkable courage and determination in rebuilding their lives following a stroke. The event took place on 16 November 2016 at The Dorchester, London. 400 guests sat down to a three course dinner followed by the presentation of 11 awards each hosted by a celebrity supporter of the charity. The event was hosted by stroke survivor Chris Tarrant OBE and Baroness Karren Brady is the patron of the event.
The event aims to raise the profile of life after stroke through the media and celebrity support and generate offers of support and donations to the Stroke Association. The awards were sponsored by Toni & Guy, NEXT plc and Irwin Mitchell and the media partner was the Daily Express. The Life after Stroke Awards demonstrates the incredible achievements of everyone affected by stroke. And by sharing these incredible stories we are able to inspire many stroke survivors who thought recovery may not have been possible.
