Awarded 2022 - Steven Turner
In recognition of his dedication and admirable work ethic in making sure that INCOSE UK’s professional registration activities and obligations have been delivered to a high standard since he took on the role of Professional Development Director. Knowing that this critical part of our operation as a Professional Engineering Institution is in safe hands has enabled me to focus on other areas during my presidency, whilst still supporting where needed.
Awarded 2020 - Professor Jon Holt
The 2020 Presidents award goes to Professor Jon Holt for demonstrating a combination of innovation and integrity throughout my two years as President. He is often the ‘check and balance’ in Council - pushing back when he feels we might not have considered potential alternatives. In 2018, when INCOSE UK was concerned about the financial projections, he was adamant that we should not impact member benefit but instead look for opportunities to increase our revenue. He subsequently proposed and delivered on two ranges of publications, as well as the new Endorsed Training Provider Scheme. When INCOSE UK was hit by the loss of the route to Professional Registration as an affiliate, he was the first to throw his support behind the idea of applying for our own License.
He is also the only person ever to force me to leave a meeting because I was laughing too hard to be able to speak!
Jon is a well known character throughout INCOSE UK, but with that comes an incredible work ethic. He is a worthy recipient of this reward.
Awarded 2019 - Professor Philip Savvides
Phil took the role of Financial Director in November 2016, the first new director in this position for 16 years. He had the insight to see that the INCOSE UK financial model and pattern of investment was cause for concern, and had the courage of his convictions to make his case to the President.
He then provided enormous input into generating a new financial model alongside the President and Company Secretary; as well as identifying where his own field could make cost savings and making those savings happen. It is thanks to Phil that the 2016-2018 President was able to drive the cost model turnaround; enabling INCOSE UK to move from consistent predicted loss to a stable financial position.
In 2014, the INCOSE UK Outstanding Service Awards were introduced. The idea behind the awards is to recognise our members who have contributed significant volunteer time and made a difference to INCOSE UK. Results are announced at the yearly ASEC event.
Awarded 2022 - Beth Fitzpatrick
In recognition of her work taking on the role as the Chair for Student Outreach for the EMEA
Workshop in 2021, and ongoing support to the EMEA Workshop/Systems Engineering Conference

opinions and should act as a launching point for further engagement in the future.

Awarded 2022 - Ian Clark
Ian expended considerable energy to the formation of the MBSE Interest Group, a spin off from the MBSR Working Group, so that those with an interest in MBSE could meet and engage in discussion rather than develop products. His leadership of the group meant that it continued to prosper through the pandemic.

Providing a suitable venue for the exams held in June and September 2019 resulted in 23 members accessing the paper examination with 18 going on to become certified.

Awarded 2018 - Railway Interest Group
I believe the RIG deserve an award as they have regularly held monthly interest group meetings for the last 3-4 years in the London area, minimal support from INCOSE UK. The events have been publicised and organised by RIG members. Attendance at these meetings have steadily grown and resulted in fruitful partnerships with organisations such as the IRSE. This has resulted in the promotion of good Systems Engineering practice and raising the INCOSE profile.
Awarded 2018 - Michael Morua
Mike has organised and hosted a joint IRSE-INCOSE UK RIG conference at the University of Birmingham. This is following the success of the same event last year, and achieved attendance of 100 people, with a waiting list of people to attend. This has been with support of INCOSE UK RIG, but minimal support from INCOSE UK to fund or publicise this.
Awarded 2018 - Karl King
Since the last ASEC, Karl has taken on the role of RIG secretary, keeping on top of organising RIG activities and communicating these with RIG attendees. Karl has also organised a joint IRSE-INCOSE UK RIG conference at the University Birmingham. This is following the success of the same event last year, and achieved attendance of 100 people, with a waiting list of people keen to attend. This has been with support of INCOSE UK RIG, but minimal support from INCOSE UK to fund or publicise this. Karl is now seeking to run this as a regular annual INCOSE UK Event.
Awarded 2017 - Model Based Systems Engineering Working Group
This group continues to go from strength to strength and has been so hugely successful that they have now made the decision to split into two. As a group they prioritise engagement and regularly command large turnouts at meetings. They also make it an objective that at least 1 paper a year is put forward for ASEC and as a result disseminate knowledge and expertise throughout the INCOSE UK community.
Awarded 2017 - Bristol Local Group
For consistently striving to maintain the continuity of the group through delivery of high quality, interesting events.
Awarded 2015 - Alan Mothersole, John Lomax, Gary Smith, Adam Cannell, Doug Cowper, Steve Ray & Gary White
Without these individuals we could not have made the INCOSE UK online certification an entirely UK process. They have volunteered to review the first UK CSEPs and also to help ensure the review process was fit for purpose, often encountering understandable though frustrating and time consuming teething problems. Some have taken reviews back to back in order to ensure that we can keep moving forward with Certification in the UK.
