Top improvisational rapper Chris Turner will host the Workplace Savings & Benefits Awards 2017.
The 5th anniversary WSB Awards will be held at London's Sheraton Park Lane Hotel on Thursday, 7 September 2017.
Turner's sharply written gags, assured stage presence and blisteringly quick improvised raps have established him as one of the best up-and-coming comics on the circuit.
His keen wit and intelligent wordplay have seen him rack up over a million views on YouTube; appear live on BBC Radio 2 and perform sold-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where in 2012 he was shortlisted for Best Joke of the Fringe.
About the awards
The Workplace Savings and Benefits Awards recognise both employer and provider excellence.
The awards aim to find and recognise the employers which have the best benefits teams and offerings to staff and have done the most to improve these over the past 12 months.
In addition, the awards look to reward the best pension and benefit providers - recognising those that have done the most to help employers and their staff over the past year.
In 2017, the WSB Awards celebrate their 5th anniversary and will be marking the milestone by moving to a new venue, London's Sheraton Park Lane Hotel.
This year's WSB Awards dinner has proved so popular that tables at the event have now sold out - and there are no longer any tables available to purchase for the evening.
However, there are still a very limited number of sponsorship opportunities available at the event. To discuss the options, contact Will Bolton on 020 7316 9696.
