As you’ll see in our report on the forklift of the year awards, Forkliftaction.com has been invited to join the judging panel of these prestigious awards and editor Allan Leibowitz will represent us in the voting.
Allan is no stranger to judging panels, having helped select the small business of the year and business woman of the year in Australia, as well as serving in specialist panels for awards in business travel, procurement, automotive products and musical instruments.
He admits part of the appeal of this selection was the lure of travel to Germany for the judging - until he found out that IFOY organisers will only cover his bus ticket from the airport!
Oh well, better luck next time.
