Experts in the Industry
Who are the Judges?
The CCMG National Contact Centre Awards are unique in that all of our judges are people who work full time in our industry. Every judge has a deep understanding of how contact centres operate; they know that life isn’t simple and that working in a contact centre brings its own unique challenges. They know what good looks like and they can spot talent when they see it.
We have a small team of Head Judges to ensure the integrity of the programme is maintained, ensuring the categories accurately represent the industry and that winners are selected fairly and via a robust judging process.
Our Convening Judge is an experienced contact centre leader that has extensive experience in judging contact centre industry awards for the past 9 years.
