Insightful video interviews and case studies of the finalists in each category were played at the event. These videos, and comments from the judging panel, summarised and brought to life for the audience why they were all chosen as finalists and ultimately winners.

Neil Hyde and Alex Hathway announced the three winners from the impressive list of finalists for the categories: Course of the Year, Positive Business Impact and the new category for 2023, Positive Community Impact.
