“2016 was a record breaking year for the London and South East Contact Centre awards” said UK Contact Centre Forum CEO Trevor Butterworth. “We ran more award categories than ever before and had more companies entering. In fact, nominations were up 12% up on 2015 levels. Perhaps most significantly though, in the opinion of our judges, the quality of entries was the highest we’ve ever seen.”

The Awards Dinner was accompanied by a daytime Contact Centre Conference featuring keynote speeches from leading industry practitioners and consultants, plus a series of Executive Roundtables on a diverse range of topics from Contact Centre Homeworking to Employee Engagement and Contact Centre of the Future.
