Paul Grecian accepts ER's Personality of the Year award


Joint editor in chief of EVENTS:review, Pete Roythorne (right), was at the recent Event 2012 and Beyond conference to hand over ER's Personality of the Year award to Gallowglass' Paul Grecian where he was representing the suppliers to the events industry.

Paul has played a key role in transforming the crewing services sector of the events industry, instilling professionalism and passion into an area that has been historically looked down upon, despite being crucial to the success of many events.

So convinced was Paul of the need for wide-ranging change and the need for stricter controls to protect his staff, clients and those who attend events, that he personally led a highly risky £300,000 investment in the development of a stringent health and safety culture in his company. This included the creation of an 84-page Crew Handbook that was developed in conjunction with the British Safety Council and fully endorsed by the UK Government’s Health & Safety Executive.

In a recent (and very rare) interview with EVENTS:review, Paul commented: “We believed 10 years ago that health and safety was going to be a major business driver for us. People laughed at us at the time, but I think we’ve been proved right.”

It is with great respect that we carve his name first in the EVENTS:review hall of fame. Congratulations Paul, and long may you continue to give your all to our industry.
