The morning after the night before...

Paul Snell is managing editor at Supply Management

By the time you read this, the champagne corks will have been popped, the celebrations will (probably) have drawn to a close, and there are likely to be a few fuzzy-headed, bleary-eyed individuals waking up with a sore head, perhaps unaware how they ended up where they have.

Congratulations if you were among the lucky winners at last night’s CIPS Supply Management Awards. Having previously been a judge, I understand the level of hard work necessary to achieve that result.

Even if you went home empty-handed, I hope you had a fantastic evening enjoying music from The Bright Sparks, dressing up in the photo booth and partying on the dance floor.

This was my 10th consecutive CIPS Supply Management Awards (naming previous hosts of the CIPS SM Awards might make a good question for Pointless, Alexander?). The event continues to go from strength-to-strength, as does the quality of the winning entries. The number of entrants in the categories increases each year, and last night was the biggest-ever audience.

It is the one evening on the procurement calendar not to be missed, and I hope to see you for lucky number 11 next year.
