The response on LinkedIn when it was announced was incredible and a little emotional. It was so lovely to hear from colleagues, peers, senior management and others in the industry who are genuinely proud of my achievement. Everyone has been so supportive. It's such a prestigious and recognisable achievement in our industry.”
