Outstanding Achievement Award – Nick Chadwin and Ian Brown

Awarded for short or long-term achievement, for exceptional performance at the Academy.

This year, the award for Outstanding Achievement was presented to two extremely special individuals.

With nearly 50 years of service between them, these two individuals have been beacons for the values which our Academy strives to promote, especially of enthusiasm and a positive approach to life. Notably, one of these Principals was the founding franchisee of the Helen O’Grady Drama Academy in the UK and has sold their branch just shy of 30 year operation of their branch.

As they both move on to pastures new, on behalf of the countless students, teachers and Principals who have been fortunate enough to encounter them within our Academy network, we wish you both the happiest of retirements. You will both be sorely missed, by us all, as highly respected colleagues, mentors and friends.

For exceptional longevity and commitment to the development of our Academy and students therein, it gave us great pleasure to present the award for Outstanding Achievement 2023 to Ian Brown and Nick Chadwin.
