The CIPP's Annual Excellence Awards

NOMINATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED

With over 285 pieces of legislation impacting on the industry in the UK alone, and over £416bn* collected through National Insurance and tax contributions, payroll and pensions play a significant role in the UK economy. Therefore the professionals responsible for the accurate, compliant and timely delivery of these services within their organisations should be recognised for their important and strategic roles.

The CIPP's Annual Excellence Awards are designed to do just that; recognising the true payroll and pension professionals who have made an outstanding contribution and demonstrated commitment to excellence in their profession.

The CIPP are pleased to announce our keynote speaker, Sir Trevor McDonald

Sir Trevor McDonalds' career in television spans almost five decades working for a variety of broadcasters and taking him around the world covering a number of significant points in recent history. In 1992 he became the first sole presenter of the News at Ten and had amassed more awards than any other news broadcast in Britain; including a BAFTA, the Royal Television Society Gold Medal for his Outstanding Contribution to Television News (1998), the National Television Award for Outstanding Commitment to Television (2003) and the Royal Television Society’s Judges’ Award (2005). Sir Trevor was awarded the OBW in 1992 and was awarded a Knighthood in 1999.
