This year we had a great selection of candidates to choose from and the judges paid tribute to the quality of all of them and they really were enormously impressed by each and every one. They found it particularly uplifting to engage with our finalists, all who so evidently share John’s values and have such enthusiasm for the AEL. They cannot over-emphasise how difficult it was to reach a final decision and they discussed it at very considerable length.
Their decision has now been made, and as it was so difficult to choose between the finalists, this year we are having joint winners., namely Lucy Thornton from Anderson Strathern and Niamh O’Toole from Arthur Cox.
As ever, please do send any nominations through to Helen Cooper using the framework as attached.
