The Licensing Awards 2021: Honorary Achievement

The Licensing Awards reached a stellar conclusion on Tuesday night (14 September), when Angela Hall, founder of licensed toiletry specialist, was revealed as the recipient of this year’s Honorary Achievement award.

Introducing the award, Jakki Brown, joint md of Max Publishing, which owns and organises The Licensing Awards, said: “Our award recipient is a true pioneer, someone who is a visionary as well as a doer; a leader as well as a team player. Known, respected and liked for their ‘firm but fair’ mentality and reliable and upfront style, they are widely trusted by licensors and retailers alike, as well as by their peers and colleagues.

“From preschool to adult, taking leading entertainment properties and emerging brands, they have innovated in their manufacturing and packaging approaches, evidenced by their sensitive skin formulations and hypoallergenic fragrances, as well as their commitment to sustainable packaging.

“Over all the years, I have never heard a bad word said against this very special individual, who has bubbled right to the top with their achievements and reputation.”

Angela founded H&A in the late 1980s, with the company’s first licensing deal coming in 1996 with Mr Blobby.

Angela commented: “I feel humbled and somewhat overwhelmed to receive this award, and particularly delighted to be its first solo female recipient. I do hope I have inspired other women to take senior leadership roles.

“It’s great to be part of such an exciting licensing industry and Team H&A thoroughly enjoyed meeting everyone again in person after such a long time.”
