18 Sep BICSc announces the winners of the 2017 BICSc Annual Awards
The British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) announced the winners of its 2017 Annual Awards in a special presentation ceremony on Thursday evening at Whittlebury Hall Hotel and Spa in Northamptonshire.
Hosted by BBC Broadcaster, Sally Bundock and supported by headline sponsor Citation as well as individual category sponsors, the event saw almost 200 guests in attendance celebrating the achievements of companies and individuals across the cleaning industry.
For the first time the ‘Assessor of the Year within an Accredited Training Establishment’ award was so closely contested that the trophy was jointly presented to two winners; Keiron Morris from HMP Wayland and Janet Cook from HMP Bedford.
Denise Hanson, head judge for the BICSc Annual Awards said “We were impressed with the standard and quantity of entries this year, many demonstrating extraordinary innovation and commitment to improving the standards of the cleaning industry. There were some very long and tough decisions throughout the judging process as a result, however all of the entrants can be incredibly proud of their submissions.”
Stan Atkins, FBICSc, BICSc Group CEO welcome speech
