The CIPS Supply Management Awards – the Winners!

Back in my B&B behind Marble Arch...

It was another excellent evening at the CIPS Supply Management awards (with sponsorship type thanks to BravoSolution principally, as well as American Express and Hays).

I'm not a huge Miranda Hart fan of her TV show but she was a very engaging and funny hostess, flirting with the "70% of the audience who are middle aged men".

Dinner was good, although that hardly matters. Good duck though and a fine pudding, I remember, but don't ask me what it actually was...

We'll have more observation and gossip from the event but for now- here is the full list of winners... congratulations to all of them.

    A great night!

    Slightly stunned that the ODA won the best public sector procurement award (and the overall award) knowing what I know about what some other public bodies have delivered on shoe-string budgets. But I guess you can deliver pretty much anything when your budget is unlimited…
