As the first celebration of the evening, former Teneo CEO and incoming Lansons CEO Gordon Tempest-Hay inducted the duo and of their partnership said:
"... their success was founded on a set of principals that was way ahead of its time.... carbon neutral for over a decade... runs as a partnership providing ownership for the many not the few... the pursuit of female leadership at the heart of their business. They did these things not to be nice, but because they understood, that they were a driver of great commercial success... and so it has proven to be."
