As a member of the judging panel involved in the initial process of the selection for ‘Product of the year 2012’, I was invited last week to the awards ceremony and dinner. Here is the list of all Winning Products 2012 with my feedback to all products that caught my attention one way or another. Mums, please let me know what your favourite products of the year are and why, in the feedback space below.
To entertain the audience and present the awards was actor and comedian Hugh Dennis who was really funny and mocked his ex-colleagues from Unilever 🙂 He was apparently chosen for this presenting job because ‘in his previous life’ he was Brand Manager at Unilever. I would have wanted to work for him! Check out his performance at the event in my video here.
And here are the Awards’ results in the various categories. Feel free to make your comments below about products you like or dislike.
