01/10/2019 | Rebecca Twose

Lancashire’s Lord-Lieutenant Shuttleworth visited our Head Office last month to present us with our Queen’s Award For Enterprise on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen. We have been awarded The Queen’s Award for Enterprise for our commitment to international trade, which makes up over 49% of our company turnover.

Lord Shuttleworth arrived at Language Insight accompanied by his two Deputies, Colonel Rosie Stone DL and Mrs Helen Bingley OBE DL. The Mayor of Fylde Angela Jacques also attended the presentation.

Lord Shuttleworth and his Deputies were greeted at our HQ in Preston by our Managing Director Donna Twose and Operations Director Gavin Twose. The guests were then given an exclusive overview of Language Insight and our achievements over the past decade.

Lord Shuttleworth then proceeded to present the award and gave special recognition to all of Language Insight’s talented staff members who were all watching the presentation. The award itself is accompanied by a scroll with a letter personally addressed to Language Insight that has been signed by Her Majesty The Queen.

After the presentation of the award was over, it was time for some refreshments where Lord Shuttleworth and his party personally introduced themselves to each member of staff and chatted with them about their roles.

I’d also like to express my thanks to the Mayor of Fylde who also joined us to celebrate this success. It was a really special day for both myself and for all of our staff here at Language Insight, it has been a great way to show our staff how much we appreciate their hard work.”
