With the likes of past and present Gallagher Premiership Rugby stars such as Ugo Monye, Harry Mallinder, Phil Dollman and World Cup winner, Tamara Taylor in attendance, Promote were responsible for inviting and liaising with high-profile media to interview HITZ awards attendees including The Times’ Education Supplement, Daily Mail, NewsChain, GiveMeSport and CNN World Sport.
Five outstanding individuals were rewarded amongst different categories during the evening but additionally, the 2019 HITZ Awards also saw past HITZ participants attend as the programme entered its second decade of success.
