Sales and marketing professionals gathered at London’s prestigious Grosvenor House Hotel last week, as the winners of the British Excellence in Sales and Marketing Awards (BESMA) were announced at a glittering ceremony organised by The Institute of Sales and Marketing.
The ceremony welcomed legendary comedian Dara Ó Briain to present winners with their award followed by entertainment from five piece party band The Bogus Brothers.
The awards seek to reward the efforts of the individuals and teams that drive company performance, as well as recognising the roles played by sales professionals in driving the UK economy forward. Previous winners have included Virgin Media, Yell & E-ON.
Natasha Brigo, Events Manager from the award organisers The Institute of Sales and Marketing Management, commented: “Each winner should feel incredibly proud of themselves as this was one of our toughest judging processes we have seen.
This was our largest awards night’s ever and we were amazed by the incredibly high calibre of nominations from across such a wide range of industries. It was a delight having so much talent in one room”.
