The judges kindly said the following about our entry as they were announcing itWhere to start with this final category?  So many strong entries and many potential worthy winners.  The winner this year had no less than 9 separate testimonials. These all backed up a story of cultural change, introducing and using new technologies to keep pace with this rapidly evolving market. Loads of evidence of thought leadership, mentorship and accreditations galore. The entry clearly demonstrated real benefits to their customers and what high regard they have for him. I will close with a quote from a fellow judge: “If Carlsberg did award entries….!!”

Raising Money For Sick Childrens Trust

One of the best bits of the UK Cloud Awards is how it helped raise funds for The Sick Children’s Trust. They were raffle ticket fundraising offering a huge prize at the end so there were many people that entered to help contribute to this great cause.  

The founder of The Sick Children’s Trust gave a warm speech about the charity’s missions and aims. The trust believes keeping families together significantly improves the recovery of seriously ill children. They provide free, high-quality ‘Home from Home’ accommodation, as well as emotional and practical support, to families with sick children in hospital in the UK. 

She also showed us a recent case study video on how much impact a charity like this can have on just one family. It was eye-opening and nice to see so many organisation giving back. To donate or learn more, click here.
