KCLBC President honoured07 Jun 2010, PR 126/10
Michael Tyrimos, President of the King's College London Business Club (KCLBC), has been awarded the NACUE President of the Year Award by the National Consortium of University Entrepreneurs.
Michael Tyrimos says, ‘I am very proud to have received this award, and it is a great honour to see that my efforts and work towards the student entrepreneurship in the UK and more particularly, King's College London are recognised and awarded. I dedicate this award to my team at the KCL Business Club, whose commitment, innovation and hard work led our society to accomplish tremendous results over the last two years.’
‘I would especially like to thank Harriet Robinson and Michael Hill-King of the King's College London Business Ltd., Dr Elisabeth Kelan and Professor Ewan Ferlie of the Department of Management, and NACUE for their ongoing and valuable support. Our vision is now evolving and we encourage more fellow students at King's to start their own enterprises. The KCL Business Club is here to support your enterprise plans and help in any way that we can.’
KCLBC was launched in September 2008. It is one of the largest societies at King's and it provides guidance, opportunities and networking opportunities in the corporate world. The aim is not to attract more business students, but more students who are interested in business.
Professor Ewan Ferlie, Head of the Department of Management, comments, 'The Department of Management is delighted to hear that Michael has been selected as the Enterprise Society President of the Year. It shows the great entrepreneurial energy that exists in the Department.’
The NACUE Society Awards recognise and reward the leading societies and their presidents in the UK for exceptional achievements in enterprise support and promotion, and their ongoing commitment to NACUE and the wider enterprise community.
Victoria Lennox, Chief Executive Officer, NACUE, says, ‘Michael has given significant time and support to NACUE over the year and has done an excellent job as President of King's College London Business Club, setting an outstanding example for his counter-parts in societies across the UK. NACUE is delighted that it can recognise his work by giving him the highly prestigious NACUE President of the Year Award.’

Notes to editors
King's College London
King's College London is one of the top 25 universities in the world (Times Higher Education 2009) and the fourth oldest in England. A research-led university based in the heart of London, King's has nearly 23,000 students (of whom more than 8,600 are graduate students) from nearly 140 countries, and some 5,500 employees. King's is in the second phase of a £1 billion redevelopment programme which is transforming its estate.
King's has an outstanding reputation for providing world-class teaching and cutting-edge research. In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise for British universities, 23 departments were ranked in the top quartile of British universities; over half of our academic staff work in departments that are in the top 10 per cent in the UK in their field and can thus be classed as world leading. The College is in the top seven UK universities for research earnings and has an overall annual income of nearly £450 million.
King's has a particularly distinguished reputation in the humanities, law, the sciences (including a wide range of health areas such as psychiatry, medicine and dentistry) and social sciences including international affairs. It has played a major role in many of the advances that have shaped modern life, such as the discovery of the structure of DNA and research that led to the development of radio, television, mobile phones and radar. It is the largest centre for the education of healthcare professionals in Europe; no university has more Medical Research Council Centres.
King's College London and Guy's and St Thomas', King's College Hospital and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trusts are part of King's Health Partners. King's Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC) is a pioneering global collaboration between one of the world's leading research-led universities and three of London's most successful NHS Foundation Trusts, including leading teaching hospitals and comprehensive mental health services.
