2014 Financial World Innovation Awards winners announced!
Once again, some of the UK’s biggest companies gathered alongside a host of international entries and start-up brands to win a coveted 'spark' trophy. And, in recognition of how the industry has evolved over the past 12 months, several new categories were introduced, providing the judges with an even greater headache.
The night began in fine style with finalists and guests arriving to a champagne reception, before taking their seats in the 'Grand Hall', where they were welcomed by Gyles and ifs University College’s Vice Principal, Martin Day.
After a fantastic three course meal, during which guests were entertained by magicians, the guests were entertained by Gyles’ own sardonic musings and wry observations and an impromptu dance-off between the broadcaster and ifs University College’s Martin Day, before the awards began in earnest. Details of the winners can be found here.
Following the commencement of the final photographs, the winners, commendees, judges and guests left the Grand Hall and headed to the dance floor, where they foxtrotted and “charlestoned” long into the evening to the lively motown-mix of the Hula Groove.
Everyone at ifs University College would like to extend their thanks to each and every guest for making the 17th annual Financial World Innovation awards a tremendous success. Congratulations also go to each winning and commended entry for their hard work and commitment to innovation.
