Network Group Awards 2020: Finalists Revealed!

As we come in to our 11th awards season, we should have already awarded and celebrated our members and partners who have shone in the last year. With the pandemic starting to have a major impact on the UK as we were gearing up for our most exciting event of the year, we had no choice but to postpone and push back further into the year.

The Group have truly excelled above and beyond the call of duty in the past few months, the sudden move to entire companies working from home instead of the steady stream we’ve seen in the past few years was an enormous task to undertake quickly, safely, and effectively.

Everyday tasks for our members were life changing for their customers; enabling a 106-year-old woman to be able to video call her family during lockdown. Connecting a remote farmer to his family and friends, and setting him up to do business online. These stories and more truly embody the Network Group ethos of doing the right thing, being better, and focusing on solutions to deliver results.

Now it’s time to recognise and celebrate our members and partners who have succeeded and triumphed through a business year like none of us have ever experienced.  We look forward to announcing the winners in November, whether it will be in person or online. Details around the Gala and Awards will be announced in the coming months.

Please join us in congratulating the nominees, see you in November! #LoveNG
