We are thrilled to be able to announce the winners of the Central and North Awards in the #KommsKlub.

Over 100 people joined for a Klub Klassic night at The Custard Factory in Birmingham. It was a massive night celebrating the best of internal communications from two mighty regions who really showed outstanding examples of IC across multiple areas, channels and skills. It was also a wonderful chance to reconnect in person after two years. It was worth the wait! You can see pictures of the night here.

Thank you to our dedicated supporters of the awards who help make the event possible. Thanks to W&P for the event production and awards creative, video production agency Topline Film and RED communications for event support. Not forgetting our dedicated committees and regional teams in the North and Midlands.
