“It was terrific an honor coaching this group of students for The Challenge 2016/17. Programmes like these are critical for the future success of our profession, and I feel very fortunate to have worked with such a dedicated and hardworking group of budding designers. The highlight for me was seeing their ideas come together and develop into well-thought-out discussions that will resonate beyond this competition and ultimately push the industry forward.” Paul Gregory/US, Focus Lighting, coach 2016/17
