And the Winner is…Sponsoring The CQI International Quality Awards

Shirley Parsons sponsored the prestigious CQI International Quality Awards on November 22nd 2017. The event, in its first year, was held at the Merchant Taylors Hall in the City of London in front of a packed crowd of quality sector professionals.

Shirley Parsons sponsored the final award, The CQI Honorary Award, which is given to the individual who has made the most significant long-term contribution to quality.

Shirley Parsons, the CEO at Shirley Parsons Ltd commented, “We are delighted to be involved in the CQI Quality Awards and sponsor the Honorary Award because it recognises the person who has moved the profession on over many years, not only in their own organisation but also on the wider stage. A person who has made a significant contribution to the quality profession as a whole.”

The Shirley Parsons team has worked with companies over many years to find talent and develop relationships with clients and candidates alike. Shirley herself went on to say, “The CQI Honorary Award is something we wholeheartedly support because it underpins everything we strive to deliver when we find great people for our clients.”

Talking about the wider benefits of the awards Shirley said, “These awards not only recognise a number of brilliant performances as finalists and winners; they also help to develop the perception of the quality sector and strengthen the importance of quality within businesses and across a varied number of sectors.”

The joint winners of the CQI Honorary Award 2017 were John Oakland of Oakland Consulting and Andrew Wolstenholme of Crossrail. Our sincere congratulations go to John and Andrew for the work and contribution they have both made to quality.
