Giles Yeo awarded an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours
12 Oct 2020
Congratulations to Dr Giles Yeo on his MBE award announced in the Queen's Birthday Honours List, for services to ‘Research and Communication and Engagement’.
In response to the announcement, Giles said “I can assure you that this was entirely unexpected. Because it was in times of COVID, the notification, instead of being on expensive official stationery, came via email, and I initially thought it was a phishing scam! Anyway, it wasn’t, and I’m deeply honoured to be recognised for my contributions to communicating and engagement in research. I am grateful to be working at an Institution which has allowed me to breathe and to follow my passion.”
We are grateful to Giles for the outreach work he has done with the Society and very pleased that his enthusiasm and dedication has been recognised. You can watch him in action, talking about the importance of engaging with the media at our annual meeting two years ago.
