Memcom Membership Excellence Awards - oh what a night!

Last night we hosted the 2021 memcom membership excellence awards at a sparkling event at the Hilton London Bankside. It was lovely to see the membership community reunited after 18 months and quite an emotional evening for us all. Hosted by our compere, the award winning David Blackburn, the ballroom was positively fizzing with energy and anticipation. 

Our host, David Blackburn.

 

A huge congratulations to everyone who made it on to the shortlist for the awards. This year, we received an unprecedented number of entries of an increasingly high calibre and our judging panels had to make some tough decisions. We also welcomed many new organisations who entered the awards for the very first time so thank you to everyone of you who participated in some way.

 

Thank you to our esteemed judging panel and to our partners and sponsors including our Headline Awards Partner the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. and our other Headline Partners Liquona and Pixl8.

 

And now to the list of winners and all those who were highly commended, congratulations....
