The UK Customer Experience Awards arrived at Wembley Stadium for this years judging and presentations.
Although the venue and use of the executive boxes meant for the judges and finalists we were spread around this impressive stadium and ground and for someone who is not a hard-core sports fan, having this as the view and backdrop for the finalist presentations made for an even more, dramatic, fitting setting for what turned out to be some really hard fought categories.
We have been involved with judging these awards for five years now and it is still utterly amazing to see the passion and heart that go in to the programmes which are happening all the time. One thing is for certain - Change is constant!.
For the first time, this year saw a full day of judging, with each panel of judges taking on two categories and 9-10 presentations throughout the day, with a break for lunch provided in the Atrium and the awards being presented in to the night with a black tie event.
Although there are a number of industry specific categories, you can see from the choice of categories(32 in total), the complexity and number of elements that go into making a successful Customer Experience delivery and transformation. Some organisations presented this company wide, with an array of joined up initiatives, but for others, it was a platform to showcase small, specific teams, or support areas, which had delivered real results which had delivered customer, employee and company success, despite significant challenges around them.
After the judging, a brief rest before the black tie event and on to the awards evening, with a disco to follow. The evening was hosted by writer and broadcaster Jeremy Nicholas
