A Double Win at the PPMA Apprentice of the Year 2019!
What a fantastic 2 days this year’s PPMA Public Sector Apprentice of the Year proved to be!
So much talent radiated from the two days of coaching and competition at Warwick Business School on 7th – 8th March 2019, that our judging panel were unable to differentiate between two outstanding future leaders…so, the decision was made to celebrate two winners for 2019!
Daniel John representing South Gloucestershire Council and Kirsten Moore representing Central Bedfordshire Council jointly lifted the title. That in no way diminishes the brilliance of the other exceptional Apprentices who all show cased their skills and abilities brilliantly. We were blown away by their individual talent and truly inspirational personal stories.
It has been fantastic to work with, and getting to know, a group of people at the start of their careers, all bursting with enthusiasm to learn, demonstrating an ability to grow, and passion for working in the public sector – what a privilege – and thanks to you all! Everyone was a great ambassador for their organisations and have bright futures ahead of them.
