IE’s MD Receives Royal Invitation

A very notable 'out of office' has been placed on IE’s MD’s email today, as Her Majesty the Queen has invited Ollie Leggett and his better half, Claire, to a Garden Party at Buckingham Palace.

The Royal Garden Parties recognise and reward public service, and are held three times a year at Buckingham Palace and once at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh. People from all walks of life are invited on the recommendation of a large number of national organisations including, the government, Lord-Lieutenants and organisations such as the Civil Service, Armed Services, Diplomatic Corps, charities and societies.

Following interviews with Lord Young for his ‘Report on Small Firms 2010 to 2015’ and Lord Heseltine’s review ‘No Stone Unturned: in Pursuit of Growth’, Ollie was honoured to be placed on a Garden Party invitation shortlist and delighted to receive the formal invitation a few weeks ago.

Outside of his role as a Brand Consultant and IE’s trusted MD, Ollie is a Visiting Industrial Fellow of Aston University, an SME inspector for the Queen’s Small Business Charter Mark, a member of the Association of Business Schools’s Small Business Executive and Trustee of Trident: Reach The People Charity – one of the leading social investment charities in the Midlands, providing care and support for vulnerable people and their communities.

Stay tuned for pics of Ollie’s day on IE’s Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feeds.
