2017 Recognition Awards & QAVS Report
On Saturday, 21 October, more than 220 guests at Reach Society's 6th Recognition Awards celebrated the Society’s national honour, The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service or QAVS (which is also known as the MBE for volunteer groups) which was won last June. This was a historic achievement because Reach Society became the first social enterprise, led by a team of male professionals in the Black community, to win this national honour.
Rene Carayol - SPIKE is Here!
Over the last few months, I've been planting my "SPIKE" seeds wherever I go around the globe, whether it be in schools, SMEs, large corporations, with entrepreneurs, MBA students and now I'm starting to hear quiet rumbles 'what is Spike, who is Spike, where can I find these Spikes?'
Reaching Scotland
Pulling into Waverley train station in Edinburgh signalled the arrival of Reach Society in Scotland. The name of this station is also the title of the first novel by Sir Walter Scott, reputed to be the William Shakespeare of Scotland; and it is fitting that just 3 minutes’ walk away is a very large statue of him within the Scott monument.
