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!


Without further ado, I’m pleased to say congratulations to the winners of:

The ROFLCOPTER Award: Funniest employee
James Rowlands
