The Institute for Collaborative Working (ICW) Collaborative Working Awards event took place at the House of Lords on Thursday 8th December sponsored by BSI, hosted by the ICW Chairman Lord Evans of Watford, introduced by the ICW CEO Les Pyle. The awards process involved submissions for 6 categories, short listed by BSI to 3 for each. A team of judges comprising Frank Lee from BSI, Mehmet Chakkol from Warwick University Business School and Lord Evans the ICW Chairman met representatives for each of those short listed to dig into the details of their submission in order to decide on the winning entries. In all there were 9 awards presented by the judges.
The House of Lords provided a fitting backdrop for the presentation of the ICW annual Collaboration awards. Hosted by Lord Evans of Watford and sponsored by The British Standard Institution the event was attended by close to 200 guests to celebrate collaborative working. This our first awards programme drew some 64 submissions from across Public sector, Industry and Academia providing significant challenges for the Judges to select winners.
