I'm delighted to have been invited to be a judge for this year's National GO Awards.
I've been involved with the awards in a variety of guises over the years. When working on the National Programme for Third Sector Commissioning the awards really helped collect and celebrate the success of innovative approaches to procurement which I don't think would have otherwise been brought to light. Prior to that I recall two of my teams being shortlisted and hoping for the winners podium - I'm sorry to say we were never first but getting that far was an enoromus help in selling procurement internally.
Now I look forward to learning from the entries. I hope I don't let the practitioner community down!
