Responding to this pressure, companies are investing in innovation and new tech- nologies and some are carving up their busi- nesses to deliver new enterprises, focused on delivering a fresh types of customer experi- ence or advancing the interests of a sustain- able society. But these strategies are nothing without the people who deliver them. Across the util- ities sector, seasoned employees and recent recruits are stepping up to the plate to help their companies tackle the big issues facing the industry, the economy and communities. They do this in a multitude of ways, by sharing knowledge with apprentices, by bringing fresh ideas to the table, by unlock- ing the secrets of industry and consumer data and simply by being passionate, engaged and inspiring individuals. At the Utility Week Stars Awards, we rec- ognise this. We celebrate the hard work and dedication that goes into delivering increas- ingly smart, fair and sustainable essential services. For the 2017 awards, we were delighted to receive a record number of entries, each reflecting a new perspective on the responsi- bilities and pride teams in the sector feel for the difference they make to the lives of mil- lions, day in and day out. On 23 June, in Manchester, we will put these people in the spotlight, celebrate the achievements of our deserving finalists and reveal the winners of the 2017 Stars trophies.
