Now in their 18th year (and I’ve been involved all that time!) Bett Awards are the most esteemed accolades in the technology for education industry. They are a celebration of inspiring creativity and innovation and aim to recognise and reward excellence in ICT provision and support for schools and colleges, with a clear focus on what works in the classroom.
With more entries than ever before this year, these awards are becoming more and more difficult to win and increasingly valuable as a marketing tool.
Here at Livewire we pride ourselves on guiding our clients to such glory! We love winning awards because they are guaranteed to raise your profile within your target market and gain you immediate recognition within your industry and among your peers – and prospects. Most important of all, they often bring the additional benefit of an instant spike in your sales.
In the past 10 years we’ve won hatfuls of awards for ourselves and our clients because we know the whole awards business inside out.
So much more than simply filling out an entry form, we have a proven process for maximising your chances of success – everything from careful selection of the appropriate awards and categories, through to preparation of carefully crafted, impactful and persuasive entries.
Do get in touch if you’d like our help.
In the meantime check out our fabulous Bett Award finalists – the winners will be announced at a ceremony in London on January 20, 2016.
