Congratulations to the 2015 E-learning Awards Winners!

by | Nov 26, 2015 | Articles

We booked out a table to celebrate with the L&D industry’s finest in 2015. Over 700 guests gathered last night at the e-learning awards to celebrate the very best of learning for work. After an evening of riské comedy intros and a lot of epic music, we were informed on the winners drawn from the biggest ever shortlist of 145 projects.

The Towards Maturity table were thrilled that so many of our Ambassadors walked away with awards, featuring 15 times on the podium. The gala was co-hosted by Deborah Frances-White and Phill Jupitus, who took us through the list in style.

The NHS Academy in association with LEO and KPMG that featured in our 2015 In-Focus report, Excellence in Leadership Development, was shortlisted 4 times and won a gold. Kallidus also took credit in 5 awards, Brightwave Group took the gold with PwC for the compliance category and we were thrilled to see Rob Hubbard win the outstanding contribution of the year award!

The winners were decided during several days of online and face to face presentations throughout September.

We would like to express our thanks to the team at e.learning age and Closer Still for a great night and to the eLearning Network – 400 entries were narrowed down to 145 in order to create the most competitive awards yet, all headed up by Tony Fracina from the eLearning Network, who worked with a panel of 35 independent judges.

As part of our Good Practice Partnership with e.learning age, we will be bringing you case studies on the winners over the next 12 months, but in the meantime, we send hearty congratulations to the winners and those shortlisted.
