Clarity in Communications Prize 2019

The Clarity in Communications prize is awarded for excellence in non-professional  communications.

It recognises non-professional communications activity linked to the livery movement and the charitable sector. This prize is organised with our friends at the Worshipful Company of Glaziers & Painters of Glass.

At our Spring Dinner, Master Gavin Ellwood (left) was joined by Past Master Duncan Gee (middle) of the Company of Glaziers & Painters of Glass in presenting the prize to Hugh West (right), Court Assistant at the Worshipful Company of Marketors and Chairman of Marketors Armed Forces and Cadets Committee.

In 2011, the Marketors formed an affiliation with HMS St Albans, a relationship that has grown and been nurtured by Hugh through his passion and commitment to this important Livery tradition.

When Commanding Officer, Tom Sharp, highlighted the need for a safety and information guide to the ship, Hugh then went beyond the initial brief and over a 7 year period crafted and published a comprehensive book of the ship’s history and maritime role. The Royal Navy has distributed the book and the DVDs widely and copies of the book are used as an introduction to new members of crew. Hugh continues to update this book annually.

An excellent piece of communication, thanks to a huge amount of pro-bono work by a dedicated Liveryman and non comms professional to create long-lasting value.
