Our Excellence Awards.
From Bravest Brand to Selling on a Shoestring...

This year's entries are braver than ever. But, come awards night, who will win? Judging is taking place at the moment across twenty three categories - from Customer Insight to Employee Engagement; and the judges will also be awarding a special prize to 'The Bravest Brand' from among all the entries. Those judges will all, once again, be senior marketers, this year chaired by Syl Saller - Society President and CMO of Diageo.
