Due to popular demand, Credit Strategy has extended the free deadline to enter the Credit Awards, sponsored by Experian.
The biggest, most respected awards programme in the profession rewards individuals, teams and businesses across 31 categories including ’Best Company to Work for’, ’Special Recognition for Diversity & Inclusion’ and ’Vulnerable Customer Strategy of the Year’.
Entries usually cost £200 but are free of charge until Friday, February 14, 2020.
The final entry deadline is Friday February 21, 2020.
The 21st annual Credit Awards will be hosted by critically-acclaimed comedian Sean Lock. The award-winning comedian has been a staple on stage and television screens for more than 15 years. A team captain on Channel 4’s 8 out of 10 Cats, Lock has also been a host of Live at the Apollo and a frequent panellist on QI and Have I Got News For You.
He is also regular headline performer at London’s Comedy Store and has appeared at all the major comedy festivals around the world, including Edinburgh, Melbourne and Montreal.
Lock follows Jimmy Carr’s appearance as ringmaster and presenter in 2019, and Katherine Ryan in 2018. The awards ceremony will once again be held in the Grand Ballroom at the Grosvenor House London, Park Lane, on May 14.
New judges have also joined the independent judging panel, which features risk, credit and collections executives from Nationwide Building Society, Shell, Virgin Money, United Utilities, Vodafone, Npower, HSBC and other major creditors.
Once again, the Credit Awards will raise funds for charity via an auction and this year, Credit Strategy is supporting the Shooting Star Children’s Hospice, a charity providing support for children with life-limiting conditions.
Across 21 years, attendees at the Credit Awards have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for charities, supporting the likes of Childline, Bone Cancer Research Trust and The Children’s Trust. During the past two decades, guests’ donations and bids have raised more than £150,000 for good causes. In 2019 alone, all of Credit Strategy’s awards programmes raised a staggering £93,000 for various charities.
