“The Education Awards not only recognises outstanding contributions within the industry but aspires to support and showcase a legacy that endures well beyond the celebration evening itself. This is a shared vision and I am therefore delighted to be a Judge at this inaugural event and look forward to working with some of the winning project entries over the next year.” – Sally Eaves
