Steve was delighted to be asked by HC-One to host their Awards in December 2016. Staged at the Hilton Manchester Deansgate, the awards recognized the achievements and dedication shown by staff who go that extra mile.

The awards followed a conference in the afternoon, in which staff listened to some great motivational speakers. Steve welcomed guests, and had an ice breaker game of heads & tails, before introducing Dr Chai Patel CBE FRCP - Chairman, Acting CEO of HC-One. Dr Patel outlined what a great year it had been for HC-One. He also detailed the great work of the HC-One Foundation. He introduced a video of Esther Rantzen, as Silverline are one of the supported Foundation charities.

Guests then enjoyed a delicious dinner, whilst Steve entertained with some subtle background swing vocals.

After Dinner, it was it was down to business, and the HC-One of a kind Awards. Award Sponsors included;
