Talis Awards Talis Insight Europe 2019

At Talis Insight Europe 2019, we held the Talis Awards. A highly anticipated event for us at Talis, as it’s a great chance to reflect on the brilliant work being done by our Talis Aspire community around the globe.

The evening kicked off with a fantastic drinks reception at the Library of Birmingham, an opportunity to catch up on the events of Day One of Talis Insight over cocktails and meet with those who had arrived earlier in the afternoon.


Later, during dinner, Alison Spencer, Head of Operations at Talis presented the awards…
