The award was presented at the Staudium of Light and gladly recieved by Gary Trotter, Hadrian Technology's General Manager. In presenting the award, the judges carefully considered each candidate's performance, "dedication", "commitment" and "imagination"2. Speaking after the ceremony, Gary said he was “shocked and ecstatic” to win, adding it was “hugely important” and woud not have been possible without the “right people” behind him.
