Award-winning Webbies

Jack Simpson

Head of Marketing and Communications

Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand.

As usual, voting for the Webbie Awards was a large part of the run-up to the Christmas do, and we released the full shortlist back in November. The winners were announced at our Christmas party on the 5th.

A glamorous affair as usual, the awards were presented by various colleagues, including a trans-continental appearance from long-term Webbie Naomi McKenna, who hasn’t missed a Christmas do in 7 years, and wasn’t going to start this time. She presented the ‘Inspiring Young Minds Award’ to Kat via video uplink from Iceland. Now that’s dedication!
