Forgione said: "The inaugural EVCOM Fellowship Awards continue the tradition of our industry to celebrate innovative, visionary and outstanding achievement in communication. Our Fellows are exemplars of the power of communication and join our phenomenal community.

"The Fellowship lunch is a clear testament to the leadership role EVCOM provides the communication sector."
