Professional Services Recognition Awards 2020

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus situation, we have taken the decision to freeze nominations for the Professional Services Recognition Awards, and to postpone the gala dinner until a later date.  We know how important the PSRAs are for everybody to show their appreciation and celebrate our successes, and we hope to review the situation later this year, when the situation is calmer.  Thank you to everybody who took the time to nominate a colleague; please listen out for future announcements over the summer.

Ambition has driven us to where we are today, and will help us to sustain our position within the Global 100.
