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

We had a very productive day with Liz as our DIALux trainer. It was good to have an open minded, independent designer with such a broad and deep knowledge of lighting. It can be easy for these training sessions to be deeply uninspiring, but this was a different experience altogether; Liz tailored the day perfectly for us and managed to take the more seasoned designers along with very new members of staff – with little or no knowledge of lighting – to a very good level of DIALux in one day.

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.

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 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. Our paths then continued to cross when she took up the secretariat role for the Society of Light and Lighting. Liz is passionate about her work and has made a significant contribution to the development of the SLL.  It’s always a pleasure to work with Liz.

I worked with Liz at Philips Lighting and found her to be a truly intuitive designer with a real wealth & diverse knowledge. Additionally she has a real commercial understanding; she easily stands her ground & is a real asset to any team or company.
