“I was delighted and deeply honoured to receive news that I had been nominated for a Lifetime Achievement Award at the NAS Annual Awards ceremony in Harrogate in March. My thanks are due to those colleagues who nominated me and to the NAS Awards committee who have placed the nomination in the final three. For me, to be nominated alongside two good friends and colleagues like Jacqui Ashton Smith and Luke Beardon, is an honour in itself. Jacqui has been an inspiration and support for many years and I have really enjoyed working alongside Luke at national conferences in the last few years.
But a ‘Lifetime’? I’ve only just got here.”
