“I felt both surprise and delight in equal measure when receiving this coveted award. I have been inspired,so many times, by those around me in my career to date and feel genuinely lucky to have worked with some extraordinary individuals. I’m much more comfortable receiving Awards on behalf of companies I have worked for or presenting them to deserving winners!”

Christine Cort, 2015 Inspirational leadership in Arts and Culture.
