I’d like to nominate @whisperingrock this week. Your post about work discipline and routines was truly incredible and inspiring and it is something I’m personally going to take heed of and take forwards. Thank you for your post and I’m sure it struck a chord with so many others too!

    I'm very glad you found it useful. I have no idea what being nominated actually means but thank you :)

    You’ll receive Bronze membership for a month. Congratulations!
    Thank you for the gesture, it is very appreciated, but I already have a training contract lined up (though I am lacking a future trainee badge) and don't think I'll get much use out of it. I just lurk the forums to offer advice (and hot takes) when I feel I have something worth adding. Could I possibly transfer it to someone else?

    If being nominated comes with a forum badge though I'll gladly take that :D

    Hi @whisperingrock! No worries at all and I appreciate you are a TC holder. I personally have been using the premium section to expand on my commercial awareness and also to listen to our webinar content since I finished the PGDL- I do think there is a lot on there to gain even as a TC holder (if I may say so!!) If you’d like to take a day or two to peruse the premium section to see what is on there and if perhaps anything may be of interest/beneficial to you, please feel free to and you can always choose someone to transfer the membership to if you’d still like to do this. Of course, if you’re absolutely certain you’d like to make a transfer then this is totally fine too- feel free to tag someone you’d like to gift the membership to in this thread. The choice is entirely yours and thank you again for your incredible post and please keep your advice coming!! :) :)

    I've had a think and my friend @Tim Buktu who is still TC hunting is probably better served with a month of premium :) Thank you again!

    Picking @TCGIRLLL this week for this detailed post on what worked for them when writing a specific application. I know it can be very daunting to put advice out without having secured a TC first but this forum really does thrive on the range of perspectives from everyone, so thank you for offering advice where you can! I hope the free month helps you with any remaining apps and interviews you have! ☺️

    Omg I am so touched @Jacob Miller 😭 Thank you so much - I really was not expecting this at all. I am humbled by your nomination and pleased to know that I contribute some value to the forum 💕 This has truly been the highlight of my week! I am equally grateful to every single person on here who’s offered me a virtual shoulder to cry on, words of encouragement and their friendship. I love you all ♥️
