Huge congratulations to our L&D Manager, Melissa Venner!
On 27th September 2017 Mel won the CIPD Michael Kelly Outstanding Student Award!
Over 930 HR and L&D Professionals gathered in the Great Room of the Grosvenor House, London for this year's Awards. The Awards are delivered in partnership with People Management Magazine, and are the most prestigious in the industry. They celebrate and reward phenomenal achievement for those in people management and development.
The ‘Michael Kelly Outstanding Student Award’ category recognises exceptional individuals who are currently studying or have recently completed a recognised CIPD intermediate and foundation level qualification.
The judges commented: "Melissa has found a passion for L&D and is an outstanding ambassador for people development. She has fully embraced her CIPD learning and actively put it to practical use. She has led the development of an e-learning platform from scratch and the project’s core objectives – on increased engagement, recognised qualifications and staff access to development opportunities – have been realised. She makes a very worthy winner and we wish her the very best in the future."
Of her win, Mel said: “Winning the award means so much! It makes all the blood, sweat and tears, the late nights and the weekends, worthwhile. After winning the award, to be personally congratulated by people who I respect so much in the industry was genuinely overwhelming. I absolutely love what I do every day and to be recognised at this level feels incredible.”
Well done Mel! You've done us, and yourself, proud!
