The CGI are very pleased to announce the second year of The Peter Budwin Award for Achievement.  The Peter Budwin Award is made to a young person up to the age of 30 years who has made a significant contribution or achievement within their place of work. This could be either:

  • Sustained and excellent performance in the achievement of their qualifications
  • Devising and implementing an innovative improvement to the systems and or processes within the workplace
  • Undertaking a major project to the benefit of the organisation

The purpose of the award is to recognise the innovation and achievement of young people in business locally. Available to employees within the CGi membership, the criteria is sufficiently open to allow companies scope to nominate those colleagues who have gone above and beyond the usual requirements expected of their role.

Companies are requested to submit no less than 300 words detailing their nominations.

The closing date for nominations is 31 October 2015, and the winner will be announced at a special reception at Les Cotils for all nominees on 25 November 2015.

Background to the Award:

Peter Budwin moved to Guernsey with his wife Carol Goodwin in 1994, and was one of the founder members of the CGI in 2002 as successor to the manufacturing and exporting organisation G-Mex. Peter was initially a director of the CGI before becoming Chairman in 2008. He completed his three-year term of office in 2011 but remained on the association’s committee.

As part of his role within the CGI Peter was very encouraging of young people and was instrumental in developing the CGI bursary which offers support to local businesses in the training and development of their staff.
