I was very excited when the email arrived saying my office cake research had been short-listed for an Inspiring Wellbeing Award. It’s obviously nice that one’s own work has been recognised, but even better when it’s recognised as being potentially useful.  

Inspiring Wellbeing Awards are run in conjunction with the annual Wellbeing Symposium which focuses on wellbeing at work, in the community and for individuals.

The award was presented by Christine Hancock, director of C3 Collaborating for Health, a London-based global charity that addresses risk factors in non-communicable disease.

Said Christine, “C3 was delighted to be asked to help judge the Inspiring Wellbeing Awards. To see Lou’s important research on office cake consumption among the submissions was fantastic. We were so pleased to recommend her for an award and happy to see that colleagues agreed and her research was ‘Highly Commended’ by the panel of judges.”
