Congratulations on AJ’s brilliant Simon Aldous and Ella Jessel for making the BSME Talent awards shortlist!
Simon has been shortlisted in the Best Digital Writer – Business category for his excellent work on his Weekend Roundup newsletter. His weekly newsletter offers an insightful, pithy and irreverent counterpoint to the standard architectural news fare, and has quickly become a crucial opportunity to provide a wider context for AJ’s hard-hitting stories.
Ella has been shortlisted in the Best Print Writer – Business for her outstanding reporting. Ella’s stories are hard won, well researched, and searching. She tackles difficult industry topics with an exceptional mix of fearlessness and sensitivity; spends hours of work contacting and persuading leading industry voices and residents to speak out on contentious topics such as estate regeneration; and has the ability to distil, analyse and frame key arguments from reams of complex data.
