West Midlands PA Awards 2020
Back in January 2020 the excitement levels began to build amongst the nominees and all the team as we began our journey together for the West Midlands PA Awards 2020.
Once receiving notification that the nominees had been shortlisted and were in the running to be recognised at our regions annual Awards ceremony, we welcomed them all to an exclusive celebration at Hotel Du Vin, Birmingham back in February 2020. We had such a fantastic mix of all experience levels across all sectors where each nominee had the chance to meet each other, some of our past winners, welcome our partners, and seek helpful hints and tips from the West Midlands PA Awards committee. We were so excited to be joined by an industry leader for the profession, Lucy Brazier, who offered words of wisdom and encouragement to all the nominees as we raised a glass to them all!
In October 2020 our shortlisted candidates met a panel of industry professionals virtually who were all really excited to hear more about the achievements of this year’s nominees and we were very grateful to be supported by Victoria Darragh, Executive and Personal Assistants Association (EPAA),
In November 2020 the finalists then went on to meet our final judging panel (again, virtually) for the final presentations before we went on to share the festivities with a night of fun, frolics, reward, recognition and celebration. We would like to say congratulations to all the finalists, winners, our partners and sponsors – we hope we were able to uplift your spirits and deliver an event that truly represented the hard work and dedication you have demonstrated in what has been an incredibly challenging year.
Applications for the West Midlands PA Awards 2021 will open in February and we look forward to receiving your nominations.
