The Triple H Awards 2023 were an outstanding success – and an emotional event as well as winners were revealed to huge applause, cheers and even a few tears of joy on 7 July at the Crowne Plaza in Stratford-upon-Avon.
The final roll of honour was the result of the exceptional standard of nominations, lengthy scrutiny by an expert team of judges and hard work behind the scenes by organisers MEG Events.
Mark Gleed of MEG Events said: “Not everyone can be a winner, but those called to the stage to receive awards are standard bearers who represent the amazing professionalism of housekeeping teams up and down the country.”
This is epitomised by the very popular choice of Jean Roberts to receive the Triple H Lifetime Achievement Award. Many of those now in senior housekeeping roles recall the enthusiasm and guidance provided by this stalwart of the UKHA over many years.
