Gyles Brandreth to host 2016 Best Practice Awards

The promotion of best practice in IR is one of the cornerstones of the IR Society's existence and the annual Best Practice Awards, now in their 16th year, play a crucial part in this.  Our annual awards dinner on Tuesday 22 November will recognise and reward those companies and individuals demonstrating excellence in investor relations. The event is also a fantastic opportunity to mix with colleagues and peers to celebrate the end of another busy year, and an important part of the event is the choice of host for the evening.

That is why we are absolutely delighted to announce that this year's host will be Gyles Brandreth!

Gyles Brandreth is a writer, broadcaster, former MP and Government Whip - and one of Britain's most sought-after award ceremony hosts and after-dinner speakers.  A reporter on The One Show on BBC1 and a regular on Radio 4's Just a Minute, QI, Have I Got New For You and Countdown, his many books include The Oscar Wilde Murder Mysteries and the No 1 best-seller: The 7 Secrets of Happiness.

We hope you will join us for the premier event in the IR calendar for the announcement of the winners on Tuesday 22nd November 2016, The Pavilion at the Tower of London, EC3N 4AB.
