The awards aim to celebrate diverse cross-sector enterprises by bringing together in one place the leading examples of great customer experience innovations. From the use of technology to improved staff training, the event welcomes examples of all initiatives in business and industry.

It was a great field of entries, including BT Enterprise Customer Service in partnership with Bluesky Performance Improvement, EE, Revolution Bars in partnership with InMoment, Mears Group, TTEC and the ultimate Winner –  Bristan Group. Rob was able to personally congratulate Giles Owen, Head of Customer Service. The passion and engagement his team has for colleague engagement is outstanding and they were worthy winners.
