ISPE is a volunteer led organisation, so everything that we do for our members is reliant on the time and resources offered by our volunteers and supporters.
These annual awards are a chance for the ISPE’s UK Affiliate to thank and recognise individuals, companies and organisations, nominated by the regional committees, for their support of the ISPE as a whole, and in particular in the UK.
Ardmac has been a loyal supporter of the UK affiliate and the awards dinner for many years. They supported first as a committee member, then a board member, and have provided resources to support the production of our affiliate newsletter. Ardmac are now supporting the chair-elect of our NW region, Philippa King-Smith.

Astra Zeneca has continued to support the ISPE over decades, at regional, national and international levels. Despite significant business transformation they have continued to support the affiliate in a variety of ways, including a Young Professional rep and a board member. AZ have hosted many site visits and tours around their facilities as well as supporting the NW region with speakers for events and committee members. Award accepted by Stephen Bryan, Site Director of AstraZeneca Macclesfield.
Mark Foss of Coopervision has contributed to the ISPE for several decades. He is extremely well recognised in the GAMP community in the UK and internationally. Mark has made significant contributions to ISPE's Technical Guidance documents. Mark has also supported events as both speaker and chair in the UK.
The final award is in memory of our friend Brian Sixsmith, who was instrumental in making the UK Affiliate what it is today.
Peter Dodd has played a significant role in supporting the affiliate over the past decade. Initially Peter hosted a site visit, but then joined one of the regional committees to strengthen the connections with bio-manufacturing. Peter started arranging events and went on to chair the regional committee. At that point, Peter joined the UK affiliate board and supported its work before being elected chair. In this role, Peter represented the UK affiliate in Europe, as well as taking forward the UK affiliate strategy. Even after retirement, Peter has continued to support the affiliate as Northeast Regional Chair.
