Supporting the Corporate Receptionist of the Year Award

As a way of shining a spotlight on the very best front of house receptionists in the corporate world, Greg Mace developed the idea and founded a new competition called Corporate Receptionist of the Year. The only award for front of house receptionists working in the corporate sector.

Craig supported the launch in 2019 by leading the team that designed the brand identity, built the website whilst he provided digital marketing support and social media communications.

Craig organised the design and production of the CROTY award as well as the application form, certificates and the PowerPoint template for the award ceremony.

StrawberryFinch is creative partner

Craig updates the website and helps to manage the key announcements to the trade press that in turn, provide coverage of the award.

On the judging panel

Craig is also on the judging panel and undertakes the face-to-face role play scenario that the ten finalists have to complete. The other parts of the assessment day include a face-to-face and phone role play scenario and a group task that tests their ability to work as part of a team.


The winner is announced at the award event which coincides with International Receptionist Day and the main prize is a trip to New York.
