Barker Brooks are all about engaging events and trusted media. Around the UK they are running the regional Accountancy Awards for 2018 and this month, I was in Leeds Dock to cover the big night in Yorkshire.
Hosting the awards, standup Comedian Ellie Taylor is perhaps better known for the show ‘Snog Marry Avoid’. Fortunately, on this occasion, none of the award winners required a Pod makeover. Barker Brooks Director Alex Gray, played his part in the on-stage line-up, as did ‘Voice of God’ Roger Tilling. Roger’s voice is recognisable from University Challenge and Family Fortunes and it was great to finally see, and meet him in person. In short, there was plenty of excitement, a room full of highly engaged people and plenty of recognition for the role the profession plays in continuing to build the region as a centre of financial excellence. A great event to photograph and there will be more to come, as the awards roadshow continues.
