Case Study:

Birmingham Young Professional of the Year

Client: BYPY Year: 2016

THE BRIEF

Birmingham Young Professional of the Year is a highly prestigious awards ceremony that recognises and rewards the most talented individuals within Birmingham’s business community. BYPY is now in its 16th year of celebrating the best professional talent in the city, culminating in over 1,000 professionals attending a glittering black-tie event.

There are six category awards: Legal, Finance, HR, Recruitment & Training, Property & Construction, Marketing & Communications. Then two special recognition awards: Aspiring Talent and Inspiring Leader.


Mike Colledge – BYPY 2016 Deputy Chair – and the team, were entrusted with the formidable task of organising BYPY in its entirety. As this was a not-for-profit event, budget management was critical. Tasks included securing event sponsorship of over £50,000, video production, script writing, live event management including show-calling, supplier procurement, liaising with celebrity compere Jake Humphrey, AV production and creative design. Risk assessment and Health & Safety documentation was also created and provided.

Take a look at the video we produced, which celebrates all things great about Birmingham. Our brief was to showcase Birmingham in a way that people may not have seen, focusing on those hidden gems. Let us know what you think!
