Wow, what a scene, it truly was a spectacular sight as we entered the grand hall at the Battersea Evolution for the ECCCSA’s, European Contact Centre and Customer Service Awards.
Now in their 17th year, Ann-Marie Stagg and her team at the CCMA, Call Centre Management Association have excelled themselves with the development of these prestigious awards.
With over 1100 attendees this event is the largest across the customer service and contact centre industry. Ann-Marie and her team of judges carried out over 1800 hours of face to face judging and have considered entries from 17 countries.
The evening started with a champagne reception set in an alpine wonderland, with ski chalets, gondolas and free runner, trampolining entertainers and dancers.
Moving in to the main hall, we were greeted by the ‘voice of the balls’, Alan Dedicoat as Ann-Marie Stagg opened proceedings.
Spectacular, moving performances of acrobatics, ballet and rollerblading were interlaced between our tasty three course menu before moving on to the main awards.
The event was hosted by television presenter and journalist Fiona Bruce, who was joined by special guest and five time Olympic gold medallist Sir Steve Redgrave.
Douglas Jackson are extremely proud and honoured to sponsor this event, attending some of the judging site visits and our Managing Partner, Michelle Ansell was delighted to present the award for Best Quality Management Team.
