“The ACE Robyns give recognition to young people in the industry. When budgets are tight, and the pressure’s on, there is no better time for companies to spotlight the achievements of those that have made a difference within their roles and have a bright future ahead of them. The standard was so high that we came up with 14, a longer shortlist than normal. We look forward to celebrating with these upcoming stars and our next generation of leaders at our Summer Party on 10th July. We also welcome back all 38 Robyn alumni to join us in our celebrations”
