Posted on 03/09/2015

The Federation of Communication Services is now accepting entries for The Gerald David OBE Award for Innovation in Business Radio 2015.

Open to all FCS members delivering Business Radio products, software applications and services either directly or by association within the communication services industry: be they manufacturers, suppliers or retailers.

Gerald David OBE had a long and very successful career in the Business Radio Industry as an entrepreneur in the arena of the supply of aerials and site services through his company Aerial Facilities Ltd.

For many years, Gerald David played a vital role as a key influencer of UK policy and was instrumental in ensuring that UK would be able to take full benefit from the wide range of important services that Business Radio provides us, even today. 

Gerald was a very keen driver of new thinking and innovation and it was inevitable he would sponsor the business radio award for innovation, the most prestigious award for the industry there is today.

The Gerald David OBE Award for Innovation in Business Radio is the only award of its kind in the United Kingdom and the FCS is proud to continue his legacy.

The winner will be announced at the FCS Business Radio Gala Dinner on Thursday 19th November 2015 at Chateau Impney, Droitwich Spa – click here for more information on Business Radio 2015.
