Team members Steve Braund (Senior Environmental Health Officer, Chiltern District Council), Helen Masterson (Principal Environmental Health Officer and Acting Noise & Licensing Manager, London Borough of Camden), and Richard Hiscock (Environmental Health & Licensing Group Manager, Aylesbury Vale District Council) were all approached to speak at our recent sell-out 2018 Noise Conference - an opportunity directly generated by being involved with the awards.
