Revealed! Our People of the Year shortlist...
Good morning folks, it's Micheal here – I'm back! Hopefully that doesn't sadden you too much. It was a surprise to me to see that my precious newsletter had been commandeered (my wife read the newsletter to me one evening as I tried to relax) – the horror of it all. I do jest, because as a small team, we are all in this together......just don't ask me to sell any advertising.
Anyway, as exciting as it is to be back, we're even more excited to announce the shortlist of our second ever People of the Year Awards.
The nominations were incredible; such a diverse range of brilliant and inspiring individuals. Unfortunately, we did have to shortlist down to two in each category. That was tough but a special hats off to Rikki and Kellie who co-ordinated the whole process. Conor, Mairead and I helped narrow down; probably a bit like they do the Oscars. I can imagine it being exactly the same.
