Part-qualified of the year Sponsored by Michael Page

Joint winners: Guido Strampelli, Procter & Gamble, and Richard Smith, Amex

The excellent quality of entrants for this category led the judges to confer a joint first prize.

He also improved the financial awareness of the sales team by developing a ranking system for various conflicting objectives.

Richard Smith developed a new way to pay for everyday purchases such as petrol, groceries and fast food using contact-less communication technology called ExpressPay.
