Your Choice wins 3 EVCOM Gold Awards
It was an incredibly successful afternoon for us at the 2017 EVCOM Clarion Awards, which took place on Friday 14th July at the Seven Dials Club in London’s Covent Garden. Your Choice, our interactive, multi-media training session was entered into three categories and won Gold in each!
- Gold winner for Education and Training (Event)
- Gold winner for best Innovation (Event)
- Gold winner for best Strategy/Campaign.
The Awards, run by Europe’s largest trade association for the corporate communication and events industries, recognise outstanding performance in corporate social responsibility in film, events and digital. They are judged by an impartial panel of in-house communication professionals and agency producers.
We are delighted with the result and incredibly proud that our work has been recognised in this way.
Steve Garvey, former CEO of EVCOM said: “Active Training Team were awesomely consistent with three trophies, all of them gold for Your Choice, including the coveted Strategy/Campaign award.”
We also sponsored the Health & Wellbeing (Screen) Award and presented the trophy to winners: Burlesque, Beauty and Betty: Lorrainne’s Story by RAW Productions for Marie Curie.
