A Celebratory BEM Invitation 

On May 8th, I had the distinct honour of attending a garden party at Buckingham Palace, an invitation extended to me as a recipient of the British Empire Medal. The BEM medal is an honour that acknowledges significant achievements in various fields - for me it was awarded for services to Business and Radio Communications. For someone who has dedicated their career to radio communications, this was an extraordinary recognition and incredibly proud moment. 

Enjoying the Grandeur of Buckingham Palace 

Entering the gates of Buckingham Palace felt like stepping into a living piece of history. The environment was surreal - pristine lawns and in elegant setting against the backdrop of one of the most iconic buildings in the world. The atmosphere was electric, filled with distinguished guests each with their unique contributions and stories of service. 

Reconnecting with Industry Leaders 

One of the highlights of the day was reconnecting with key figures in the radio communications industry. I had the pleasure of catching up with colleagues like Paul Jarvis from Ofcom, Tim Cull from the Federation of Communication Services (FCS) and John Grant from Signature Industries in Scotland. Each has played a pivotal role in shaping our industry, and I wish to thank these three gentlemen for their generous support in the proposal for my award. 

Reflections on a Career in Radio Communications 

The event was not only a celebration of personal achievement but also a moment to reflect on the journey of our company, Procom. From our early days to becoming a leader in the industry, our mission has always been centered around innovation and excellence. This recognition reaffirmed our commitment to pushing the boundaries and continuing to exceed expectations in the dynamic world of radio communications. 

Reflections on a Career in Radio Communications 

As I left the splendid gardens of Buckingham Palace, I carried with me a sense of accomplishment, when I look at the strides we’ve made in the radio communications industry, I can clearly see the solid foundation laid for future generations. This garden party was a profound milestone in my life, reminding me of the importance of our contributions and the ever-evolving nature of technology and communication.
