PQ Awards



So who walked off with a PQ trophy at the 2013 awards?
PQ magazine’s 2013 awards had a twist this year. The magazine is 10 years old and to celebrate we gave out 10 special awards to those who have really supported us over the past decade (see page 8). We managed to give out eight of the trophies on the night – unfortunately, one of the other two would-be recipients was at home drinking Lemsip!
But the highlight of the night, as always, was the presentation of PQ of the Year award, which was won by AAT student Liina Pukk. PQ engaged an interpreter for the night as Liina is profoundly deaf and communicates using sign language. A mum of two, she studied for her Level 4 exams while the children were asleep.
The NQ of the Year was shared this year by Grant Thornton’s Jonathan Simons and Deloitte’s Saad Mir. Saad is no stranger to awards – he won the Deloitte Pakistan Trainee of the Year award in 2011. Unfortunately, he couldn’t come to the awards as the British Embassy was closed when he tried to obtain a visa (he is, though, featured in our ‘Life at…’ section on page 34). Simons became an ACCA member in 2012 at the tender age of 22.
One winner, Paul Merison of LSBF, flew all the way from Singapore to pick up his award for Private Sector Lecturer of the Year.
