It’s about giving more than you’re being paid to give, it’s about giving more to help an industry to get better to the way we used to be.”
Upon receiving the award Per Madsen said, “I didn’t see that coming at all. It’s a great honor for me to stand here today. Thank you all for your support and all the help and all the time all you guys and ladies are offering to listen to us and what we as an industry can offer in terms of information and knowledge.”
