GlobalCCU resilience

For Annick Renaud-Coulon, the founder and president of the GlobalCCU Awards, and for the Advisory Board of GlobalCCU, it was essential to maintain the GlobalCCU Awards, despite the pandemic crisis and the obstacle of closed borders, because of the importance of gathering peers together, encouraging them to learn from each other and to support the development of the profession.

During the Awards e-Ceremony she thanked all the applicants for their very professional work, and their trust, as well as the International Advisory and Judging Committee who spent a lot of time and energy assessing the applications, which made for rich debates during the selection process and the preparation of the 2021 GlobalCCU e-Forum.

Many thanks to the attendees

from Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Chile, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Malaysia, Netherlands, Paraguay, Russia, Singapore, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, UK, Uruguay and USA!
