Awards, magic and rugby were highlights of the recent annual CIOB Maidstone Hub Construction Professionals’ Dinner. The event was attended by companies and professionals from Kent and throughout the south east.

Maidstone Hub chair Oma Megbele MCIOB welcomed guests including CIOB senior vice president Sandi Rhys-Jones FCIOB.

The event included the announcement of the CIOB Maidstone Emerging Talent and Motivational Leader Awards.

The Emerging Talent Award went to Scott Dennett from Willmott Dixon.

Lauren Shields from Kier was announced as the Motivational Leader winner. The award was presented by Carol Turner, wife of Steve Turner FCIOB, in whose memory the award was given.

Congratulations go to the other finalists, Serafina Ammirato from Kier and Esraa Hassanain from Invvu Construction Consultants for the Emerging Talent, and Charles Kenward MCIOB from Kent Construction Consultants for the Motivational Leader Awards.

Magicians Peter Lee and Guy Wade Young enthralled guests with tricks and illusions. The after-dinner entertainment was provided by Matt Dawson, who regaled everyone with tales ranging from his rugby-playing days as an international player for England, to his long tenure as team captain on Question of Sport, reaching the final of Strictly Come Dancing and winning Celebrity Masterchef. 

Over £2,000 was raised for CIOB Assist at a raffle.
