Award Sponsor

Become an Esteemed Sponsor of the 2019 Big Green Awards

The 2019 Gala Dinner and Big Sustainability Awards will once again  celebrate what is being achieved in Corporate Sustainability, Environmental Management and Social Value.

  Venue

Our home is the prestigious Italian Villa at Compton Acres in Poole where 120 movers and shakers gather for a glittery industry event.

  The Evening

In 2018 we were greeted with a drinks reception on the ground floor of the Villa and later made our way upstairs to the sound of ‘Tonight’s Gonna be a good Night’. The night was opened by our resident MC and we were then treated to the incredible ‘Adele Experience’ by the renowned Dorset Artist Jax Hall. The Villa bowled everyone over with a sumptuous 3-course dinner followed by our awards ceremony. The night saw the Ferry Company, Red Funnel, head up to present their award to the tune of ‘We are Sailing’ by Rod Stewart.  And our two-woman directors team head up to the stage to the sound of ‘Sisters are doing it for themselves’.  Following the ceremony, both our winners and our runners up all went away with beautiful glass trophies so that everyone was a ‘winner’.  After all the photographs Jax once again took the stage with a medley of tunes to enable those with any energy left to dance till the night closed.
