Oh what a night!
21 February 2018
The Café de Paris was again the wonderful backdrop to the only accountancy awards worth winning! Yes, all the PQ magazine 2018 award winners now have one of our coveted PQs in their grasp.
Before editor Graham Hambly took to the stage to announce the winners the packed-out room was first entertained by Britain’s Got Talent’s Daliso Chaponda.
The top prize, PQ of the Year, went to FairFX’s ACCA trainee Tyson Nsimbe. It hasn’t all been plain sailing for Nsimbe, but he has never given up on his dream of becoming a qualified accountant.
Distance Learning Student of the Year was CIMA PQ Toby Austin. It was fellow online studier, Lucy Wheatley, who nominated him despite the fact that he beat her in every single exam.
The NQ of the Year trophy went to ICAS-qualified Michael Scott. He was shortlisted last year for PQ of the Year but came back for more, and was delighted to pick up his prize. The one blot on his evening was the fact that his wife Roanna had to stay at home. She couldn’t leave the farm as the cows are calfing! That was a new excuse for us at PQ.
The Accountancy Team of the Year was a surprised and very happy Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust Finance Team (pictured).
The ACCA picked up two awards on the night. It won Accountancy Body of the Year and also the award for Innovation for its Ethics and Professional Skills module.
While AAT College, The Training Place of Excellence, beat off the big boys to win the Private Sector College of the Year, London South Bank University won the Public Sector prize for a second year in a row.
CIPFA’s CEO Rob Whiteman also picked up an Editor’s award, as did Fiona Williams from Sutton Coldfield College.
