The charismatic host, Guy Bloom, kept the crowd engaged with a blend of wit and professionalism, ensuring the event maintained a lively tempo and sharing exceptional success stories as he revealed the winners. 

Awards were presented in 12 categories, recognising excellence in strategic impact, digital and cultural transformation, leadership, collaboration and environmental and social impact.  

Each recipient expressed their genuine delight in winning an award, with one gold winner declaring “It’s such an honour to be finalists, let alone to have won it! It’s a significant milestone for us, and just the beginning. Everyone’s going to take a huge boost from this!”  

Notable winners included Fortify & Partners, a data management consultancy revolutionising water market solutions to create impressive ROI; Journey4, a customer transformation consultancy demonstrating an exemplary client-consulting relationship that has led to outstanding strategic impact; and Rise Beyond, an all-women leadership team at a collaboration consultancy dedicated to enabling better ways of being and working together while delivering significant year-on-year growth.
