Customer Service Training Awards 2013

Last Friday, TeamDJ were at the Customer Service Training Awards and once again, we were extremely proud to be involved as a live judge and sponsor of the event.

20130705-182744.jpgThose of you who follow our blog and social media posts will know that Douglas Jackson are regularly involved with many industry events and awards and this will be our fifth year partnering with the Customer Service Training Awards.

The event and presentations were excellently organised and delivered by Don Hales and Anne-Marie Lose of The Customer Service Training Network which were held at the Radisson Blu, Heathrow.

This year, there were more entries and judges than ever before, with up to 10 judges in attendance for each category presentations.  These included; respected industry leaders, previous award winners and subject matter experts from the customer service and contact centre industry. The entries and those presenting, did well to present and be scrutinised by so many, but did an excellent job and the standard of entries certainly gets higher each year.

The awards were hosted by Julie Peasgood with Sharon Maughan as a guest speaker for Barnado’s.  Entertainment was provided by the truly exceptional ‘The Singing Policeman’ or rather policemen and women, which were a real highlight of the event, who, after ‘apprehending’ the fugitive and Chair of Judges, Paul Cooper, (a wanted man of many years apparently…!) launched into song and had the audience rocking and rolling with many firm favourites.


Following the fun and food we were on to the important stuff and to the winners:

  1. I have been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours lately, but I never discovered any fascinating article like yours.

    It’s beautiful price sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the web might be much more useful than ever before.
