GSD® CEO & Founder Graham Shapiro was honoured to feature in The Inspiring Leadership and Innovation, an official Cambridge University Students’ Union (CUSU) publication.
CEO Graham Shapiro is an Ambassador of Innovation for The University of Cambridge.
The University of Cambridge is one of the world’s most recognisable and respected names in education and research, and has been leading its field for over 800 years. Behind its magnificent buildings and architecture lies one of the world’s richest sources of intellectual talent.
It is the exemplary education on offer from Cambridge that makes its global reputation so remarkable. Countries throughout the world have benefited from prime ministers, scientists, scholars, professors, medics, business leaders, industrialists and entrepreneurs who share this common denominator of excellence.
The University of Cambridge is a world-leading model of educational excellence with a reputation that spans the centuries. This long-standing status does not mean, however, that it’s an institution content to rest on its laurels. On the contrary, the university and its colleges continue to invest in the future to deliver an exceptional education to the students of today and tomorrow.
Produced by Cambridge University Students’ Union (CUSU) and St James’s House publishers Cambridge: Inspiring Leadership & Innovation is a lively and informative mix of news, practical information and in-depth articles. Charting the university’s success stories from past and present, and providing current students with the tools and inspiration to follow suit, the book also highlights how selected people and organisations from around the world are promoting best practice and nurturing new innovations.
CUSU: The Inspiring Leadership and Innovation will be made available to:
• More than 20,000 Cambridge students
• Members of the Cambridge Alumni Association
• UK and international government departments
• More than 30,000 UK education institutions
• 17,000 higher and further education institutions worldwide
• International accreditation bodies

The Stevie® Awards are the world’s premier business awards. They were created in 2002 to honour and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organisations and working professionals worldwide.

Reggie® has won gold in the App of the Year category for Education and Reference.

“We congratulate all of the Stevie winners in this year’s IBAs,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “The quality of entries we receive improves every year. This year’s judges were rewarded with the opportunity to review more than 3,500 stories of business achievement and innovation from around the world. We look forward to celebrating the winners’ achievements in Paris on 10 October.”

Commenting on Graham Shapiro Design Ltd, the winner in the Outstanding Educational Service category, the chairman of the judges said: “Gone are the days when children would sit quietly in class while the teacher reads out the register and ticks each name off. Now thanks to Reggie®, the registration ritual is electronic, flexible and can take place anytime, anywhere. It is a great tool for outdoor activities and especially useful for fire evacuations when it is important to keep track of everyone. Reggie® deserves top marks for being a really useful practical tool and has a great future.”

GSD® launched their new mobile app on Friday 14th December 2012, which was a massive success!

Reggie® is one of the world’s first mobile applications that allows teachers to take the student register, anytime and anywhere. Reggie® is quick, easy to use and affordable, saving time and money.

Held at BL6 in Nantwich, Cheshire, guests included: Edward Timpson MP and Lee McQueen. Representatives from Schools, CAPITA Sims and The Francis House Children’s Hospice joined in with press and media to celebrate the launch of Reggie®.
