Testimonial from Last Year's Winner

“The Rising Star competition provided a valuable opportunity to attend a conference packed with interesting talks given by leading experts in the trusts industry. It was a great privilege to be given the chance to present my paper at the end of the conference. At the talks and at the numerous social events, I was able to meet other junior practitioners taking part in the competition and established practitioners, some of whom I have been able to work with since. I would absolutely recommend the competition to others.”
