This year the ASUC Awards Lunch was held at Painters’ Hall. One of the great 12 Livery trade associations in the City of London. Established in the 12th century by groups of tradesmen, this was the perfect venue to host this year’s awards which combined unique art dating back to the 16th Century and valued heritage within the ideal location.
Following lunch, guests were entertained by Comedian Jo Caulfield who had clearly done her research on the industry and the sponsors and companies who attended. She shared her hilarious one-liners on underpinning and reflected on her journey through visiting company websites describing one as it resembled something from ‘a murder seen’. It was safe to say the room took the roasting well and thoroughly enjoyed her wit and wildly accurate observations.
We were lucky enough to have Jo present the awards this year. The ASUC awards recognise the work of members in promoting best practice, ensuring high standards of workmanship and the continuing development of its workforce through training.
