ABTT wins ‘Best Theatre & Live Events Training & Consultancy’ in SME Greater London Awards 2020
8 January 2021
The Greater London Enterprise Awards 2020 presented by SME News focused on small businesses in London that have overcome the unprecedented upheaval and impact of COVID-19. Using this as an opportunity to innovate and bring about permanent positive change within their Industry, nominees were judged purely on merit and rewarded parties were assessed based on their reputation, commitment, innovation, determination and contribution to society.
SME News has chosen to present the ABTT with ‘Best Theatre & Live Events Training & Consultancy – NPO’ in the 2020 Greater London Enterprise Awards.
“People who are not learning are not progressing. Through our Training & Education category we recognise the firms in this sector that are really making a difference and helping their clients to grow and flourish.” – SME
The Association has built an outstanding reputation in the Industry for its commitment to developing and validating technical skills within the Industry. Technical training is delivered throughout the UK and as far afield as Kuala Lumpar, Hong Kong and more. Last year, with the help of partner venues the ABTT worked quickly to find a safe way of continuing to provide their practical and theoretical based courses – managing to run over 10 training courses throughout the year, passing on vital technical skills to its candidates despite the ongoing pandemic.
