The Judges’ Comments

T700 LEADERSHIP EVENT was an innovative and exciting, two-part event concept that combined both leadership and an award recognition element. The RBS team had clear objectives from the outset, over-delivering against the plan to challenge and engage delegates in equal measure.

The team created a format that supported wider corporate initiatives. For example, partnering with The Royal British Legion and the British Heart Foundation, the team was able devise a strong corporate social responsibility message - reinforcing the image and reputation of RBS to its stakeholders.

To amplify the event, the team worked hard behind the scenes. They captured and created content to ensure the event trended on social media and reached out to those following the event virtually, as well as complementing the activities for those physically present.

At just an 8 week planning cycle, the Judging panel was impressed with the way the team was able to piece together such a complex event and accommodate last minute changes, such as additional meeting rooms. 

The judges were unanimous in their decision: an event they’d have liked to attend themselves.
