UK Speechwriters’ Guild Business Communicator of the Year 2014

SteveBeeSteve Bee, CEO of Jargonfree Benefits, is the UK Speechwriters’ Guild Business Communicator of the Year 2014.

The judges said: “Steve Bee has a remarkable ability to speak about pensions in a humorous and compelling way. He has an admirable vision: ‘pensions without the piffle’ and we are impressed by his ability to put complicated ideas into words of one syllable. Listening to Steve Bee is like being entertained by a stand-up comedian. Only when you get home do the implications of what he’s told you hit you like a bucket of cold water.’’

Steve joins a distinguished line-up of winners.

2013 – Rory Sutherland, Ogilvy

2012 – Gillian Tett, Financial Times

2011 – Geoff Burch

2010 – Sir Martin Broughton, British Airways
