2020 Awards Gala

11th September, 16:00. Virtually

Join us on Friday, 11th September at 4pm for our 2020 Virtual Awards Gala. The famous awards dinner needs to take a break this year, social distance drinking, dancing and bandioke just can’t be done (trust me, when I say we’ve explored all options!).  However, nothing stops us from an early finish on a Friday afternoon, crack open a bottle of your favourite tipple and sit back to celebrate the 2020 Awards finalists.

Free Webinar - 2020 Vision: Crystallising your knowledge Launch

Hosted on 27th April 2020 by Phil Anderson and Paul Smedley

2020 is The Forum’s 20th year and this year we want to look back on our first 20-years and think ahead for the next 20-years. Our vision, back in 2000, was and remains to raise standards in customer operations helping to set standards across Planning, Insight and Quality. Now, having established communities of best practice we can continue to raise standards and prepare for the future.

This year’s theme refers to the clarity and sharpness of vision required to purposely move forward towards your targets, goals and dreams. Whilst recognising the benefit of our fluid thinking over the past 20-years to crystallise our knowledge of best practice and standards.

 - “Purpose, Learning and Self-Awareness” Keynote from The Forum’s Phil Anderson
 - 2020 Best Practice Guide launch and chapter review
 - 2020 Best Practice Programme – how to get involved
