It’s always nice to win a prize, but when the judges are hugely respected pioneers it is even more special.

So I was bowled when my office cake research won the poster prize at the Inspired Medics lifestyle medicine conference in Leeds last month. The judges were cardiologist Dr Aseem Malhotra and GP and diabetes expert Dr David Unwin  who said they liked the research’s pragmatic, balanced approach to a problem which resulted in realistic conclusions.

The conference itself was superb and there’s a blog on the way about it.

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.”

I’m beyond chuffed that my office cake research has been shortlisted for an award.  

The Inspiring Wellbeing Awards are associated with the annual Wellbeing Symposium and recognise efforts to improve wellbeing in the workplace, communities and among individuals. 

Whatever the outcome, it’s exciting that the potential of rethinking workplace cake culture is starting to be recognised.
