Congratulations to the IFW Awards 2023 winners!

One of my favourite parts of the IFW Conference are the IFW Awards, which this year were presented by Rebecca Tuck and Emily Pool.

Our highly deserving winners are all IFW members who have supported, educated and helped drive conversations around financial wellbeing.

The IFW Award for Steadfast Commitment went to Darren Cooke.

A graduate of the Financial Wellbeing Certificate programme, Darren is an ardent advocate for the IFW andour aims of steering the financial services industry towards making client wellbeing central to conversations.

Darren takes every opportunity to promote the values and activities of the IFW and was instrumental in making the introduction to the Openwork Partnership.

The IFW Award for Financial Wellbeing Educator went to Dennis Harhalakis. 

Dennis is an engaged and vocal attendee of IFW events, sharing his expertise as a financial coach and hosting events on occasion. He also runs Cambridge Money Coaching, providing the IFW-accredited course ‘Understanding Client Money Behaviour.’

The IFW Award for Member of the Year went to Hiren Panchal. 

Hiren is a dedicated member, consistently making the time to lead and support IFW events, not least the Wellbeing Cafe and London & South East of England regional meetings. Hiren warmly welcomes guest speakers and ensures every attendee emerges enthused, thanks to his enduringly positive attitude.

We also have a very special award voted for by IFW members.

The IFW Award for Most Inspirational Member went to Kate Shaw. 

‚ÄúKate is always generous with her knowledge and time, and has made discovering and prioritising what clients actually need central to her business practices and ethos.‚ÄĚ

Congratulations, all!
