The best wife award goes to…

Awards ceremonies are all to often the place to witness emotional outbursts, even our own event can sometimes match the Oscars for touching moments. But it is unusual to see an awards presenter getting carried away in the heat of the moment.

Bridge Gadhok, compliance partner of Doshi & Co, decided that rather than simply presenting Small Business Software Package of the Year to Norwegian software company Mamut, he would tell a stunned crowd it should be presented to his wife for being such a lovely small package. TS was particularly moved when he asked her to stand up.

The next presenter, Stuart Wilson of Alliance & Leicester Commercial Bank, also wanted in on the act. ‘I’d present this to my wife as well, but she doesn’t know I’m here,’ he said, raising a few titters and some concerns. Perhaps we should consider a comedy tent at our festival of accountancy bands?
