On September 16 2016 some of the best and brightest retail stores from around the country congregated for an evening of celebration. London’s Hilton Bankside provided the perfect backdrop for the second National Ignite Awards where independent retailers are acknowledged for their efforts across 9 different categories.
The award ceremony was made even more special by the inclusion of its comedic host Dominic Holland who is a Perrier Award winning comedian, author and broadcaster and has written material for the likes of Lenny Henry, Harry Enfield, Clive Anderson and the late, great Bob Monkhouse. As well as appearing on a number of television and radio shows, he is a regular panellist on Channel 5’s Wright Stuff and is recognised up and down the country as one of the most sought after awards hosts.
Throughout the evening Dominic entertained guests and ensured the ceremony went smoothly, gliding through the nine categories. The all-star guest list extended further than the host with England Cricket Captain Nasser Hussain OBE taking to the stage as the key note speaker for the event. He engaged, and captivated the audience with a talk on the skills that are required to drive a team to success and contributed significantly to the event’s overall success.
Both Dominic Holland and Nasser Hussain are available to book through Champions After Dinner Speakers.
