The annual Leading Lights awards dinner/party, held this year at the Brazos Hall in Austin, Texas, is always great fun and, of course, an exciting evening as the winners are announced and trophies handed out.

We had 25 categories this year, including two Women in Comms awards, so there were plenty of winners in celebratory mood. (See Leading Lights 2017: The Winners and Congratulations to WiC's Newest Leading Lights.)

The awards dinner was held on the eve of the Big Communications Event (BCE): You can find out what happened at the show at our BCE Show News page.

To see who picked up the 2017 trophies, start this slideshow by clicking on the picture below.

Re: Congrats to all
Yes, it's always great to see winners among not only the big names but the ones you don't always see in the news and press releases quite so often despite the work they've done and progress added to the industry.

Congrats to all
These are all great shots! I'm seeing a lot of well-known providers among these winners. It's nice to see the little guys too.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
