So we came together to pick our finalists on Friday the 28th of May. Have to start by saying it was an absolute pleasure to meet with the panelists, they're warm-hearted and genuine, funny and entertaining, well dressed and professional, all while fashionably carrying a balanced head on their shoulders. A few couldn't make it due to scheduling conflicts, but we will surely make it up with them some other time.
