As a sponsor of the prestigious Client Choice Awards since their inception in 2004, we are disappointed by the need to convert the 2020 ‘Best Professional’ Awards from a gala presentation night to an online event. However, we very much support the decision to be good global citizens and not encourage non-essential mass travel so as to reduce risk to all involved.
ACoP was looking forward to presenting and celebrating with all the Finalists the “Best Professional” Award at what was shaping up to be the biggest and best presentation night yet. However, in light of the recent developments in the international spread of the COVID-19 virus and continuing uncertainty about if or when it will be declared a pandemic, the organisers did not believe it would be responsible to hold the awards event in Melbourne.
Notwithstanding the COVID-19 lock-downs and travel restrictions, the clients have voted and selected both Finalists and Winners who will today be announced in the Australian Financial Review, on the Client Choice web site and on social media.
We were delighted to ‘virtually’ present the “Best Accountant”, the “Best Built Environment Consultant”, the “Best IP Specialist” and the “Best Lawyer” practitioner awards, see ClientChoiceAwards.net/client-choice-awards-2020-winners#category-target-8
Congratulations to George Beaton on maintaining the continuity of the annual awards for over 15 years, to the finalists for maintaining their professionalism in providing services in difficult times and of course to the 2020 winners!
