Joining with a first-class Degree in International Business Management, newest team member Emily says, “I always assumed I’d have to move away to develop professionally; I’m really happy to have achieved that here in Torpoint. I work with fascinating people from around the world, learning constantly as I’m encouraged to take on new challenges by colleagues who truly care about my future”.
Company Director, former Royal Marine Alasdair Keir said: “It’s fantastic to be recognised in this way. More than anything else I’m delighted such a small dedicated team has achieved the highest business accolades available in Great Britain. My colleagues, our suppliers and friends have done incredible work; the awards recognise a real devotion to ensuring our customers get the service they deserve”.
The Queens Awards not only recognise a company’s contribution to UK enterprise but also look at its role within the local community, its environmental impact and the quality of relationships with suppliers, partners, employees and customers. Resilience Communications Ltd has demonstrated a well-developed sense of social responsibility, directly linking commercial success with significant donations to defence and educational charities.
Her Majesty The Queen makes the Awards annually for excellence on the advice of the Prime Minister assisted by an Advisory Committee. Representatives of Resilience Communications Ltd will attend a special Queen’s Award reception at Buckingham Palace to recognise this significant achievement.
