This year I was honoured to be invited to co-host the Tech4Good awards for the fourth year.
The eighth annual awards took place at a ceremony yesterday at BT Centre, London, where more than 200 people came together to celebrate these amazing people who use digital technology to make the world a better place for other people.
Tech4Good Awards organiser, AbilityNet’s Head of Marketing and Communications, Mark Walker said “This year we saw over 200 high-quality entries that showcase how people are using technology for good. As always, judging the awards was a very tough task, with many worthy entries just missing out on awards and so we are delighted to announce these extremely worthy winners of the AbilityNet Tech4Good Awards 2018. Congratulations to each and every one of them for their hard work and success. And commiserations to those who didn’t win – they were all great entries, worthy of an award.”
