We are fortunate to have the support of many of the country’s and county’s leading businesses and many well-known ‘names’ in the world of business. However, we were particularly delighted that Norm Augustine made a ‘flying’ visit to support NMiTE.
On a whistle stop tour, Norm delivered a lecture at the University of Warwick, hot-footed it back to Hereford to launch NMiTE Connect; did an interview with BBC Hereford & Worcester; had dinner with local MP Jesse Norman and was guest of honour at a dinner in London hosted by the National Centre for Universities & Business.
Norm was nominated as one of ‘Fifty Great Americans’ by Who’s Who and was also presented with the National Medal of Technology by the President of the United States. We are truly honoured, and enthused, to have this project launched by such a respected and successful figure on the world stage.
