Our award-winning staff

19 February 2008 by Karen

Thursday saw the 2008 Academy Ambassador Awards which celebrate excellence in customer care in Liverpool. Three members of staff were nominated: Emma Calver from the Weston Discovery Centre in World Museum, Ros Appleby from the Learning team at the Walker, and Eddie Harvey from Gallery Services at World Museum. Emma fills us in on the night’s events.

We all had a fantastic night. The awards ceremony was at the Crowne Plaza hotel in the city centre, and as it was Valentines night there were lots of hearts decorating the ceremony, and the theme of people leaving their hearts in the city when they come to visit.
Several NML staff attended plus the nominees and their partners, and we were treated to a lovely three course meal.
Ros won the Family Friendly Award, and I won in the Arts and Culture category. It was a real surprise to win – I was over the moon.
Edwin was highly commended in the Visitor/Event award, and judges commented that the quality was so high in his category that any of the nominees could have won.
After the awards we all danced along to the Merseybeatles band.
