I was thoroughly impressed with the nominations for this year’s makers & shakers Awards. It is an absolute delight to be involved in the awards process and it’s so inspiring to discover some of the fantastic work and new initiatives happening within our industry.
It’s an honour to be able to be a judge for the makers & shakers Awards, it’s been quite a hard task this year with so many incredibly talented nominees choose from. The finalists this year really are the best of the best in our industry and really do deserve this recognition from their peers.
