Best of the PQ awards 2017
23 February 2017
London’s Café de Paris has never seen anything like it, as a packed venue rocked the joint at the 2017 PQ awards.
The guest list read like a who’s who of the accountancy profession’s movers and shakers. PQs were also there in force, ready to discover the winners of our shiny PQ awards.
The entertainment on the night was provided by Nathan Caton, one of the most exciting young comedians on the scene. He went down a storm, and had certainly done his homework – no one at the event will ever forget the right way to pronounce ‘ACCA’!
The top prize, PQ of the Year, went to CIPFA trainee Tim Mpofu. He works at the London Borough of Ealing and was in a state of shock after his name was read out. Amazingly, he is our first CIPFA winner of the PQ award, but we are sure there will be others.
The winner of the Student Body of the Year award was the Northern Chartered Accountant Students’ Society (NCASS), which has been supporting ACA students in the north-east and Cumbria since 1896.
So it was about time they won an award!
The winner of our Distance Learning Student of the Year went to Susuan Azzabi, who works at Muscat International Airport Project in Oman. An ACCA student, she is the ideal ambitious, committed and globally-minded PQ, said her nominee, LSBF.
The London South Bank University crew were so pleased with their award, Public Sector College of the Year, that they managed to get a record number of staff onto the stage! The Private Sector College of the year prize went to Kaplan’s Islington campus. The Online College of the Year is HTFT Partnership, who’s innovative approach was recognised by our independent judges.
Another winner on the night was ACCA-X, which scooped the Study Resource of the Year trophy. The judges all agreed that this product has a real ‘wow’ factor that was making a real difference.
