“To hear the inspiring stories of our learners at the British Museum, an iconic property, and in the company of Phil Spencer, one of the best-known names in the sector, made this year’s awards extra special. We hope it inspires even more people who are working in property or are considering it as a career option to begin their personal and professional development.”
