King's Distinguished Alumni Awards
Throughout the autumn of 2017 the King’s Alumni Office welcomed nominations for these awards. Across categories including volunteering and entrepreneurship, alumni and staff of King’s were asked to nominate alumni and students that they felt were making a positive impact and demonstrating extraordinary potential for the future.
A selection committee including representatives from the alumni community and senior alumni specialists reviewed the nominations and selected the recipients for the awards from a strong pool of candidates.
The awards included ten Alumni Aspiring Leaders Awards, which recognised alumni under the age of 40 who are leading in their fields or making a real impact on society. They exhibit a cross-section of young King’s alumni, recognising the outstanding contribution our alumni make in our community while inspiring others.
Congratulations to King's Business School alumni, Edit Laszlo and Muhammet Bilial Macit who were both recognised in the Business Leader category.
