Awarding Panel

Thank you once again to our awarding panel consisting of Andy Meadows Abellio, Dave Spencer College of Policing and Becky Oughtibridge Sewell Group for reviewing and judging all nominations across the awarding categories, excluding themselves where there could be a conflict of interest.



“This is the first time I’ve been to the conference and it has absolutely surpassed my expectations. I came here thinking that I know quite a lot about OD, actually what I found is, that there is food for thought, the thinking and the contributions that others have made has actually stimulated my own thinking. To be able to take something back into my own organisation has been tremendous. I highly recommend it.”
