Award presentation at the Security Institute

The Security Institute : 23 December, 2013  (Company News)
UK security professional body recognises achievements of past chairman with George van Schalkwyk trophy
Award presentation at the Security Institute

The Security Institute presented this year’s winner immediate past Chairman Mike Bluestone MA CSyP FSyI, with the George van Schalkwyk Trophy at its annual Christmas Curry Night.

Mike, who was nominated jointly by Institute Directors Andrew Nicholls and Mike Hurst, joined the Security Institute in 1999, and spent several years on the Validation Board before becoming Institute Chairman in March 2009. During his four years at the helm he supported the introduction of student membership, the continuing professional development scheme and mentoring programme, as well as being instrumental in the development and launch of the Register of Chartered Security Professionals.

Mike commented: “I am deeply honoured and humbled to receive this very special award. The Security Institute has been part of my DNA since I joined in 1999 as member No 20, and I will continue to do my bit as a Vice President. I had the honour of setting up the Remembrance Lecture during my tenure.”

Mike is Director of Consulting at Corps Security, and is the first to acknowledge the tremendous level of support he received from them, and in particular CEO Peter Webster, during his term of office.

Security Institute Chairman Emma Shaw CSyP commented: “The George van Schalkwyk Trophy is awarded annually to the Institute member making a significant contribution to security professionalism and Mike has been recognised for all his years of dedication and commitment to not just to the Institute but also to the security industry.”

George van Schalkwyk was an Institute member who was tragically killed in a helicopter accident in Afghanistan in 2006. The Award is made in his memory, and sponsored by Institute Fellow Bruce Braes of Organisational Resilience Pty Ltd, in Western Australia.

Recipients, who are chosen by the membership, receive an etched de vecchi silver dish along with a commemorative certificate.
