The look however, turned from confusion to embarrassment has Graham began to explain about the lifetime achievement award and gave a little background to the work that Andy does behind closed doors to ensure ideasUK maintains its position as the worlds leading organisation for Employee Driven Innovation.
After the award was presented it was time for Andy to say a few words and fighting back the tears he managed to thank everyone involved but a special and heartfelt thanks went out to his wife, Judith, who has supported all the work he has done with ideasUK over the past 10 years.
Speaking after the award, Graham commented: ‘There is no one more deserving of this award than Andy, he consistently shows that ideasUK flows though is veins and works tirelessly for the association.’
This is the second award that has been presented to Andy this year, during the Ideas Arabia conference in May he was presented with the first International Achievement Award from the Dubai Quality Group.
As a committee, we would like to thank Andy for all his hard work and just mention the fact although he has been given this award, we do expect more of the same in future…
