The judging panel cited Liz for her personal passion and energy in promoting the cause of good lighting. In her 15 years in the lighting industry she has made an enormous contribution to the lighting family and the wider community. While running her own independent lighting design practice, she works tirelessly and gives freely of her time in industry initiatives and organisations.

She was one of the founders and the driving force behind the Night of Heritage Light, a hugely successful event for the UNESCO International Year of Light, which attracted widespread press and television coverage and achieved millions of interactions on social media.

Delivered in an approachable, well-humoured, but expert style over the course of a very enjoyable day, Liz’s training provided me with a relevant and contemporary overview of all the key principles that contribute to good practice. Equally relevant to those beginning a career in design or specification sales, I’m happy to say I’ll be recommending Liz’s training to colleagues in the future and will be taking another course myself soon!

Liz and I worked together at Philips. I always found her approach to design refreshing and always willing to help with detail in projects. One of a talented bunch of lighting designers I am pleased to co-operate with and regard as a friend and colleague.

I owe my love for all things lighting to Liz.  Her knowledge was astounding but even more so, her passion for the industry was infectious.  The most rewarding and well delivered course I’ve ever had the pleasure of attending.

Liz made the brave move from a commercial to a design role when we worked together at Concord. She then joined me at Philips where she studied for her MSc in Light and Lighting.  Liz is passionate about her work and made a significant contribution to the development of the Society of Light and Lighting.  It’s always a pleasure to work with Liz.

I have known Liz for many years.  As well as being a talented lighting designer she is one of the most passionate, hard-working and committed people I know in the lighting profession.  Aside from her professionalism, her honesty and humour make her a pleasure to work with.
