“This year’s roster of finalists for the IWFM Awards is exceptional,” says IWFM Awards chair of judge, Steve Gladwin. “When market conditions are tough it’s easy to dismiss celebrations as trivial and overlook the chance to stand among peers and recognize all the achievements made by teams and by organizations throughout the year. It’s at occasions like our awards and the afterglow that follows, that we recognize some of the best work happening right now in our profession.”
