After the awards, we interviewed several of the staff from Retail Week as well as our own Sarah Taylor on their thoughts about the Oracle Retail Week Awards 2011 and which they thought were their favourite categories. See the video below for some exclusive insights from Joanna Perry, Charlotte Hardie and Tim Danaher of Retail Week.
Below is a video of Tim Danaher's Welcome Speech at the Oracle VIP Reception before the Oracle Retail Week Awards.
Tim Danaher Editor of Retail Week welcomed the guests to the Oracle Retail Week Awards VIP party. The room was packed with retail luminaries from Charles Dunstone and Sir Philip Green to the award winners Sir Terry Leahy and Sir Stuart Rose. Sir Terry Leahy and his Tesco team sipped Tesco Finest Champagne to celebrate at the beginning of a night that would honour the life time achievements of Sir Terry Leahy. The room was buzzing with energy with the industry poised to celebrate his long journey from a career that began stacking shelves at his local Tesco store in Liverpool to becoming what Sir Ken Morrison later called "the business man of the late 20th and early 21st century".
