The UKWA Annual Awards Luncheon 2014 was held yesterday at the Dorchestor in London. This prestigious event attracted members from all sectors of the Warehousing and Logistics Industry in the UK. The event started with a drinks reception at mid-day, followed by a superb lunch, entertaining after lunch speeches from Gyles Brandreth, Roger Williams CEO of the UKWA and Michael Davison UKWA Member Manager, who also shared a hidden talent by playing Annie's Song on the flute. After winners of the UKWA Awards were announced and trophies duly handed out, the lunch ended with everyone singing Lili Marlene, the song made famous by Marlene Dietrich, in honour of WW1 soldiers on the 100th anniversary. The event also raised in excess of £3000 for the charity Transaid. The day ended with a networking event.
Proteus representatives Simon Begnor, Marc Jarvis and Linda Rodway all enjoyed themselves, and as Marc commented, " This was my first experience of the UKWA Awards Luncheon, I certainly thought this was a great opportunity of meeting like minded individuals. I had a great time and also met some really good networking contacts. I can't wait for next year's event"
