committee chairman Sam Pennell said: "Rachel's mix of intellect and presenting experience make her the perfect host for this year's awards.
However it's not only the talent of the finalists that inspires me but also the dedication and commitment of all the people behind the scenes who make this happen; our terrific sponsors, patrons and many individuals, organisations and businesses who've supported BYPY
over the last twelve months.
As a company we have always attended BYPY
and, having had a BYPY
finalist from SimkissGuy for the last three years running, it was a very easy decision for us to support the event in an official sponsorship capacity of the HR, Recruitment and Training category for the second year running in 2015.
BPS Birmingham is immensely proud of BYPY
, its flagship celebration of talent
