Isle of Man, 24 May 2021 – The Chartered Governance Institute UK & Ireland – Isle of Man Branch is delighted to announce the names of those students who have achieved the highest marks at branch level in the Institute’s November 2020 examinations. Students were recognised for their success in the autumn exam sessions for the Institute’s Chartered Governance Qualifying Programme (CGQP) and its International Finance and Administration (IFA) qualifications.
The names of the awards and the recipients of each examination are as follows:
The students received their awards at a celebratory event at Tanners Loft on 14 May. Chris Bolt, Chair of the Institute’s Isle of Man branch commented:
“All of our students put in many hours of study in order to pass their exams, something which is particularly noteworthy given the fact that most of them hold down highly pressurised jobs at the same time. Laura Morris, Risk Manager at Capital International Group, has particular cause for celebration as not only did she achieve the best marks of any student in the Isle of Man for the Foundation Programme, she got the best result for this paper worldwide. She has been awarded the H W Waller Butter Prize in recognition of this notable achievement.
“I would also like to extend my personal congratulations and thanks to Courtney Paradise who has served as Student Champion for the branch since September 2019. Courtney has been on hand to help other students through the examinations process whilst studying for her own exams and it is testament to her exceptional talent that she scored so highly while devoting her time to others. Courtney’s term as Student Champion came to end on 14 May and she has been succeeded in the role by Laura Morris, winner of this year’s H W Waller Butter Prize.
“The past year has shown the importance of good governance in helping the Isle of Man and other countries across the globe to withstand the impact of the pandemic. Important services such as financial services rely on highly qualified professionals such as our award winners to ensure that business is conducted in the proper way. This is essential to stabilise the economy and maintain the Isle of Man’s reputation as a safe place to do business. I would like to congratulate all of our winners on their individual exam success, which is something that I am sure they, their families, their employers, the Institute and the sponsors of our Student Awards must all be extremely proud of.”
