OH WHAT A NIGHT
From London’s Quaglino’s we give you the PQ awards 2014
If you were listening to Radio 2’s Steve Wright in the Afternoon then you would have heard that the place to be on 27 January 2014 was the PQ magazine awards night. Now, Steve said these were the PQ awards and not the GQ awards, but it would have been hard to beat the chilled atmosphere at Quaglino’s in London’s West End.
Compere for the evening was rising comedian Chris Martin. You will be hearing a lot more of him in the future – he has a pilot comedy shows Radio 4!
Winner of the PQ of the Year was James Field from Lewes. The ACCA PQ was ‘really making the difference’ at his employers, Cheesmur Building Contractors.
AAT student Donna Smith walked off with the Distance Learning Student of the Year award. She is proof-positive that it is never too late to start studying. She also managed to pass all her exams in one year!
Our NQ of the Year was CIMA Emily Hamblin who works for Vince Cable at BIS.
For the first time there were joint winners of our Lifetime Achievement Award. This year it went to Jane Scott Paul who is about to retire as CEO of the AAT and the wonderful Steve Freer (former CEO if CIPFA). Both have reshaped their professional bodies – for the better!
