Speaking after the ceremony, Dean Jenkins said:

“It’s great to be recognised for such an achievement after suffering from dyslexia and struggling in school when I was younger. One of my biggest motivations for the way I structured my courses was to really engage my students and show them that learning doesn’t have to be academic and strict; it can be hands-on and fun. I think my spin on teaching would have helped me immensely in school and it’s great to see that it has been recognised!”

-Dean Jenkins, Creative Pod/ Codez Academy Director

“We’re extremely proud of winning the CBF Innovation award and being recognised locally for our global work. Its the first award for us and hopefully many more to come”

-Emlyn Davies, Bomper Studio Creative Director

The Innovation award was sponsored by fellow ICE member and last years winner, Blackwood Embedded Solutions.

Amazing! Well done both, and congratulations to all of our other ICE finalists, Wize VA, Happus, Number Hub, Life’s Chocolates, Service Tracker and The Health Cloud!
