This year’s UKOUG Partner of the Year Awards was held on Thursday 20th October at the prestigious venue of the Institute of Directors.
116 Pall Mall is situated in the heart of the West End and not only offered the perfect combination of elegance, first-class service and history; it was also a unique and unrivalled venue providing UKOUG with the perfect backdrop for this year's awards.
Guests were welcomed with a drinks reception where flowing champagne and tasty canapés broke the ice and ignited conversation amongst the UKOUG Partners who attended.
Through to dinner and the luxurious room sparkled with dresses and impressive decor setting the scene for these prestigious awards. The service and food at the event is to be commended, the Institute of Directors produced a superbly lavish dinner. Joanna Burigo of Milestone UK, along with many other partners, expressed their thanks: ‘The party was charming... here’s a big thank you to all of you at the UKOUG for throwing such a nice do.’
Comedian Ian Moore served as an energetic host delivering a stand-up routine which took advantage of the Partners high spirits leaving many partners alongside UKOUG staff in fits of giggles. Ian then invited all gold award winners up onto the stage and gave them a chance to make a speech. Along with a few comedic responses many thanked their own teams and the support UKOUG had given them in the last year to ensure customers voted them as the gold winner in their category. Noel Gorvett from AMOSCA said their award was, ‘...a continuing validation of our business approach, focusing solely on the business challenges faced by the Hyperion community’.

Why choose our Partners over other suppliers?
When considering an Oracle supplier, as a user of Oracle, check out the UKOUG Partner Directory to ensure they have an active role in the Oracle User Community and also look out for the award winner logo on the profiles of those who were voted the best in their categories. Oracle Suppliers engaged with UKOUG have a vested interest in their customers and work with UKOUG to ensure positive future development of their customer’s own business through the correct and most productive use of Oracle’s products and services.
