Two two longstanding civic champions were honoured at the Saint Lucia National Day celebration event at Newham Town Hall on Friday 11 December.

Global Markets Consultants CEO Prem Goyal, who was invited to the event as a special guest speaker, presented Justin Moore MBE JP with a GMC Life Achievement Award and P.C. Tracy Gunn with a GMC Community Champion Award, in the presence of the Acting High Commissioner for Saint Lucia and community and business leaders.

P.C. Tracy Gunn has worked for over 15 years as Newham Borough Council Liaison Officer and has worked with countless organisations to improve good community relations and to increase public confidence in the Metropolitan Police.

As a keynote speaker, Prem shared his journey and global business experience and stories from his holidays in Saint Lucia. He told his audience: “Be careful when you drink the rum on your holidays in Saint Lucia”, followed by huge laughter and claps.

Following the event, Clerona Compton, Consul at the High Commission for Saint Lucia, said to Prem: “It was indeed a pleasure to meet with you and to learn of your background, which is very impressive and inspirational. I am very glad I attended the ceremony so as to get to know you. My colleagues and I were very impressed. ”

Thank you Justin and Theresa Moore for again organising such a fantastic event this year for such a beautiful country.
