TCii CEO Terry Irwin will once again be on the judging panel for the WOW! Awards, which recognise the UK’s best customer service providers. The contenders are all organisations or individuals nominated by customers.
On 28 and 29 September the shortlisted finalists will make personal presentations to an independent panel of expert judges drawn from some of the UK’s leading customer service professionals, consultants and sponsor representatives.
Panellists will include directors and other senior personnel from organisations such as Barclaycard, BBC Radio 4, Thomson Reuters, Boots, Eurostar and City University London.
Terry will sit on the judging panel for the following categories.

This year’s finalists are Terry Burns of Tower 42, Garry Graham of Haringey Council, Wajid Hamid of Stoke-on-Trent City Council, and Craig Spicer of Merseyside Police.
2. Serving Other Businesses: Best Business/Organisation 2010. These finalists have been chosen because of the quality, quantity and diversity of customer nominations and evidence of imaginative ways to delight customers. The judges will look for:
- evidence of how they deliver innovation, creativity and excellence to customers
