It’s been a while since I’ve been to an award ceremony but attendance at the simplys last week reminded me how very exciting and rewarding it is to be recognised by your peers.

I was delighted to be asked to join the judges’ panel and congratulate Sam Fletcher, who won the IC Rising Star (under 30) and Aoife Casson, who was the runner up.

A first time award ceremony for Simply Communicate. They did an excellent job in delivering a super event at the Gherkin; it was quite beautiful.

I’d encourage anyone who would like to recognise the great work their internal communicator colleagues do, to get involved next year. You will not be disappointed.
