2020

Virtual celebrations

Celebrating responsibly

When the pandemic hit, we were no longer able to celebrate Awards Night in our usual style. However, it was still important to us that we recognised the achievements of accounting and finance professionals across the UK, especially after such a difficult year. We were delighted we were able to get the community together, albeit virtually, and rolled our Hero categories to celebrate those who had acted selflessly and gone beyond the call of duty to support businesses that really struggled.
