We started this year with a mission- to improve on our achievements in 2015 by helping over 400 candidates move up the career ladder, secure high paying project management and business analysis roles and then celebrate their success in style, and that was exactly what we did at the 2016 DBT Awards.
It has become a culture at Digital Bananas Technology in the last three years to annually recognize and celebrate outstanding candidates who have spent the year working hard, by rewarding their excellence and contributions to the continuous growth of Career Insights’ eWorkexperience platform.
There were no holds barred in making the night as epic as it gets and, yes, this year’s edition turned out the best DBT Awards show yet! Also from the fact that 95% of candidates who were either nominated or won awards secured jobs before or after the DBT Awards.

Held at More London Suites on November 5, the black tie event rolled out in style, full of excitement, class and sophistication; with guests treated to various food delicacies, drinks and entertaining performances. Away from the usual seriousness and hard work of the eWorkexperience platform, candidates showed up looking all suave and ready to unwind, and unwind they did. It really was a very exciting and inspiring night for all.
The highlight, of course was the presentation of 28 awards to well deserving candidates, all of whom expressed their utmost gratitude for the recognition, encouraging fellow candidates who have not secured jobs being on the platform not to lose hope but continue to work hard, stay focused and dedicated on the platform. Awards were in five main categories- Project Management Team, Business Analysis Team, BA Team, Programme Office team and Honorary Awards category.
