The Gordon Loveridge Memorial Prize for the highest score in the Foundation Certificate Assessment went to Gavin West of Sprint Lifting Equipment Ltd; Danny Woodfield of Konecranes Demag UK Ltd; and Chris French of Bunzl Brand Operations.

Ross Moloney, CEO of LEEA commented: “With winners coming from Australia, Egypt, Canada and the UK, the LEEA Academy Awards really showcased the international nature of our learning. These courses are ideal for our global industry and are accessible even during the pandemic – perhaps more so than ever before – and in non-English languages. I would like to congratulate all this year’s successful recipients and thank the LEEA team for organising the 2020 Academy Awards. We are looking at exciting developments for 2021.”
