Six customer experience experts from Webhelp UK have been crowned customer experience stars at a glittering gala awards ceremony held at Stirling Castle Â– the favoured residence of ScotlandÂ’s kings and queens.
For the third year in succession, Webhelp UK rolled out the red carpet for the kings and queens of the Customer Experience industry at the Â‘Our HeroesÂ’ awards.

The attendees were nominated by their fellow colleagues as the company looked to find star performers in six main categories Â– with the enticing prize of a Â£1,000 cheque waiting for the winner of each.

As well as the overall winners, further significant contributions were recognised with trips to London to visit the new Â£600 million studios at Sky, where Sky Sports news and Sky 1 dramas are filmed.
The evening included a Vodafone F1 car and a tyre changing competition that ran throughout the night, a pipe band played whilst medieval actors, including a king, queen and court jester kept the team thoroughly entertained.
Webhelp UK CEO, David Turner, acknowledged another year of fantastic performances by the team: Â“This is the event which recognises and rewards the team members who go that extra mile in their day to day work. WeÂ’re a people based business and so to read some of the nominations for people who are doing such fantastic work and making a difference in our business makes me very proud. The dedication and quality of our team, right across the UK, is what sets us apart as a business.Â”
