The Ceremony was held in one of London’s top hotels, The Westminster Bridge Park Plaza. Guests arrived to a drinks reception where they had the chance to mingle with friends and catch up with fellow finalists and business associates. From there they were then invited down to the main hall were dinner was served before the awards were announced.

Comedian and host for the evening Rob Becket kicked off the night alongside HJ’s executive director, Jayne-Lewis Orr.

On this occasion KAM were unlucky not to take home an award back to Lossiemouth and for the rest of the team. However Karen spoke on the evening saying how proud she is of her team for getting this far and to be recognised at such prestigious awards. We would like to wish all the winners and finalists of the evening our congratulations and hopefully we will see you next year!!
