Ben Kelly’s speech:

Hell of a stress for entire exec team, and not something wanted to happen in this way. Incredibly proud to work for the society. Back in the first AGM, was nominated however rejected the position due to feeling like he didn’t know enough about the society at the time. Have since found how amazing the society is and wants to support its progress and accomplishments for the future.
