We had the pleasure of attending the RLC Foundation Awards Dinner held at Headquarters Officers’ Mess Deepcut on the 9th November 2016.

The RLC Foundation was formed in 2015 and promotes professional excellence among soldiers and officers within the Royal Logistics Corps. It provides a mechanism for professional engagement with external logistics organisations, including industry, academia, professional bodies and professional media.

We are proud to sponsor the RLC Foundation Mentoring Support Award, which was won by WO1 Lee Moore of the Defence School of Transportation for his passion and professionalism revitalising the CPD process for the RLC Driver Communications Specialist Trade. We have worked closely with Lee to develop progression routes for his trade through our CILT programmes.

“I was so pleased when it was announced that Lee had won this award, it is indeed just reward for his huge efforts on behalf of the trade.”  Helen Chambers, Operations Director.

This is one of a number of awards that was presented during the evening. Congratulations to Lee and the winners of the other awards, including WO1 (Conductor) Gavin Emmerson who received the RLC Foundation Special Award for outstanding contribution to the Foundations Development.  Again we have worked closely with Gavin and he has been extremely supportive in developing our accredited RLC training provision.

We have a passion for seeing people and organisations succeed and the evening was a wonderful event for sharing individual and team successes. Seeing people’s commitment to their work, people and themselves is truly inspiring.

We very much enjoyed the hospitality of the RLC. The dinner was second to none, and it was great to meet up with the RLC and other industries.
