To round off 2022, we launched our very own Best of the Box Awards to recognise and celebrate all the big, small and extraordinary ways our team have contributed to another amazing and successful year at Boxclever.
Our team voted for who they believed deserved lifelong recognition and bragging rights across our exclusive 15 categories, covering aspects of our proposition to who should be our resident fashionista and who is our walking Wikipedia.
We received over 350 nominations and winners were announced at our strategy day on the 7th December.
The 2022 Winners
It was a tough decision for the directors to select the winners of each category, but the following nominees were selected due to their outstanding contributions to Boxclever.
1) Smartest Thinking Award: John Tearle
For working smarter, not harder. We can always count on JT to create smart solutions. Whether it’s an internal problem or a nitty gritty client problem, he always thinks outside of the box suggesting novel approaches to solve the puzzle.
2) Making the Complex Simple Award: Dan Young
For making complex subjects simple. We can always count on Dan to distil the most complicated things into something powerful and meaningful, but easy to understand.
3) Unleash Potential Award: Andy Haylett
For helping others to reach new heights and be the best they can be.
4) Trusted Advisor Award: Matt Coggan
For always putting peers, individuals and teams at the centre of his efforts, always going above and beyond to foster a positive experience for all involved.
5) Rally & Inspire Award: Bethan Blakeley
For uniting and galvanising teams with a clear and common vision. Bethan is a driving force to inspire change.
6) Support Each Other Award: Karen Bagshaw & Tilly Lewis
For always looking out for others – whether that be colleagues, clients, or suppliers.
7) Enjoy the Journey Award: Karen Bagshaw
We can always count on Karen to add some zest into work life – whether that’s a team social, an energiser in a meeting or celebrating a milestone with a client, she cultivates an environment that embraces fun.
