This has been a year where technology and innovation have taken centre stage, enabling organisations to operate in completely new ways, connecting families and loved ones and helping us to achieve things in short timeframes we never thought possible. Each of these finalists has excelled despite the major challenges this year has put in their way, and I’d like to congratulate each of them on this achievement.”
