Service Leaver of the Year

Lee Whitworth was nominated for an ex Services award in business and travelled down with his wife and Co Director Alison for the awards ceremony in Central London last Thursday.  

This category looks at ex-forces personnel at all stages of their career to pinpoint an overall service leaver of the year. The judges will examine achievements in the last 18 months of each candidate’s career, looking at demonstrations of business excellence and leadership, examples of being a role model to others, as well as efforts to support or represent the ex-forces community as a whole, either as an ambassador or by actively trying to bridge the gap between the armed forces and the business world.

​Lee was picked because of his strive to launch and grow A&E Harmonious Compliance Training Ltd, Coordinator of the Richmond Community First Responders, Chair of Governors for Wavell Community Infants and Nursery School and Musical Director of the West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service Band. As well as A&E Lee freelance trains, for several of the national training companies of which Jamie Cameron and First Response have fully supported Lee at this event, by rearranging their diary to allow Lee the time to attend the ceremony. 

Lee and Alison are overwhelmed that A&E after only 2 1/2 years in business are now an Award Winning First Aid training company.
