The British Excellence in Sales Marketing Awards 2017
By Donna O’Toole
On the 9th November we were delighted and proud to sponsor the ‘Best Employer of the Year’ category at this year’s BESMAs (British Excellence in Sales Management Awards). With the notorious Jimmy Carr hosting the ceremony, the stage was set for an evening of laughter, awards and excellence – and what a night it was!
The Grand Hall of Old Billingsgate set the scene for the occasion. With dickybows tied, ball gowns adorned and champagne in hand it was time to learn who had been crowned winners of their category.
Amongst the winners were: The Training Room for Sales Team of the Year (over 50 employees); Workbooks Online Ltd came away with the award for Best Sales CRM Product of the Year; David Spear Commercial Vehicles were awarded Senior Leadership Team of the Year; Yell came away with several awards for individuals of their sales team; Steve Burton achieved Best Sales Trainer; Mercuri International were crowned Sales Development Programme of the Year and the Lifetime Achievement Award went to Peter Thomson – we’d like to congratulate each and everyone involved for your hard work and well-deserved wins.
As sponsors of Best Employer of the Year, our CEO Donna O’Toole was invited to present the award alongside Jimmy Carr on stage. Having judged the category herself it was such a great honour to award FBC Manby Bowdler LLP their trophy.
Donna said, “The competition was extremely tough, and the quality of the entries was outstanding, all of the finalists should be tremendously proud of their teams and leaders.”
We would like to thank ISM Professional for organising an awe-inspiring evening and inviting us to the prestigious evening. It was great to see so many friends and business connections – we can’t wait for next year’s awards!
