your big chance to hear from the UNAWARDS16 winners – for free

After the knockout success which was the UnAwards16 we’re delighted to be able to announce three regional masterclasses - a unique chance to hear from the winners – warts and all – what they did and what they learned.

To recap, the UnAwards16 saw a record-breaking 330 entries from across the sectors. To win took something quite exceptional.  This is your chance to listen and talk with the winners FOR FREE. In the era of reducing training and development budgets this is a huge opportunity for you and your teams to soak up some rich learning and to engage with the comms, pr, marketing and digital community in three rather fab venues.

What will the day look like?

The morning will feature five winners sharing the secrets of their successful campaigns and projects plus the chance to ask them your burning questions. The afternoon will feature a masterclass unconference and the chance for you to choose from 9 different discussion sessions on the big opportunities and challenges raised in the morning, or on the topics of greatest priority to you in 2017.

Confirmed, winning speakers are:

- TransPennine Express

- Selby District Council

- Leeds Dying Matters

- South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue

Of course we’ll line up some lovely grub and good coffee to keep you well fuelled throughout the day. How good is that.

I’m in – how do I get a ticket?

Tickets for the 2016 Masterclasses flew off the shelf in minutes so you’ll need to be quick. Tickets are free but on a first-come, first-served basis and we’ll ask you to limit them to two per organisation so that we can get as many of you there as possible.

BOOK TICKETS HERE  >>  SOLD OUT (in minutes... )

A big thank you…

Thank you to our official UnAwards Winners Masterclasses partner, the Local Government Association, and our official sponsors, SocialSignIn, Granicus, Alive With Ideas and the Council Advertising Network. Without their support these events simply would not happen.

Thanks too to our host city councils – Westminster, Birmingham and Leeds - for helping to make these events fly.

See you there.
