The agency will manage this year’s festival (27-29 September) after the previous ‘Dive In’ event reached nearly 1800 delegates and attendees, according to Gong.
‘Dive In’, which hosts high profile speakers, workshops and branding events, has been shortlisted for five industry awards including as a ‘Diversity and Inclusion’ nominee for the Guardian Sustainable Business Awards and ‘Diversity Champion’ for the Marketing Week Awards, as well as others.
Pauline Miller, head of diversity and inclusion at Lloyd’s, said: “Gong’s team delivered superb results last year and they were always on hand to help with a busy programme of activity. I’m grateful that we are able to continue our relationship. I look forward to their support promoting the events and engaging with audiences at this year’s festival.”
Narda Shirley, managing director at Gong Communications, added: “To see ‘Dive In’ recognised in this way is very exciting and a testament to months of hard work, creativity and a very successful collaboration with the Inclusion@Lloyd’s team; our warmest congratulations to everybody involved. We look forward to working closely together again this year as ‘Dive In’ goes global.”
