“Every year our Awards celebrate the best that Guernsey has to offer in terms of good governance and the standard just keeps rising and rising. I know that the judges had a hard time deciding who would be victorious in each category, but whoever was nominated for an award should feel equally proud as they do an amazing job helping Guernsey businesses and other organisations to remain at the forefront or good governance practice. I would like to thank Jim Roberts, Chief Executive of the Guernsey Community Foundation for speaking at this year’s Awards and for helping the Institute to recognise the achievements of the crème de la crème of Guernsey’s governance community. I would also like to thank our sponsors for their support with this event: Aspida Group, sponsor of The One to Watch award; TMF Group, sponsor of Governance Professional of Year; Northern Trust, which kindly sponsored the drinks reception; and First Intuition, sponsor of our Student Excellence Awards.”
