Senior directors within banks, building societies, credit card providers, debt purchasers and advice charities attended the evening. They were joined by firms from the breadth of the industry - BPO providers, debt collection agencies, law firms and technology providers.

 

The host for the evening, comedian and actor Rufus Hound, supplied more than enough entertainment for guests. Hound is known for his appearances on Drunk History: UK, E4’s Think Tank, and for previously covering festivals including Glastonbury and Reading for the BBC.

 

During the evening, guests raised more than £4,800 for the Children’s Trust, a charity that runs a range of specialist care, education and therapy services for children and young people from across the UK, including the UK’s largest rehabilitation centre for children with brain injuries.

 

The evening was supported by a range of sponsors including Adare, Intelligent Environments, and Lowell.

 

Once again, the awards night followed the Collections, Debt Sale & Purchase Conference (CDSP) held during the day at the same venue. The conference was sponsored by Intelligent Environments, Telrock, Lowell, Arum and Lexis Nexis.
