TS never thought accountancy would be the kind of profession to attract groupies, but was proven wrong at last week’s Accountancy Age Awards. Neil Wood, the FD of the 2012 London Olympic bid and winner of our Personality of the Year Award, was accompanied by an entourage that would make a heavyweight boxing champ proud.
Not satisfied with clapping for their man when he won, ‘Team Wood’ came equipped with Neil Wood face masks, flags and pictures of the Mr Wood on his fortieth birthday (from what TS can gather it was a raucous affair).
The mild-mannered accountant was also besieged by autograph hunters, impressed by his figures. And from what TS can remember, Team Wood won the post-award party hands down as well. Congratulations to Neil and his loyal followers.
