17 December 2009

The Golden Shield Security group recently held it’s proud 20th anniversary celebration in the suitably dignified and historical venue of Armoury House in London – the headquarters of the oldest regiment in the British Army, namely The Honourable Artillery Company which was founded in 1537.

This memorable event was hosted by the Chairman of Golden Shield HRH Prince Bala –Tongle´le´ PhD, and it attracted a truly esteemed audience which included business partners and clients, diplomats, military personnel, representatives of professional associations and senior police officers. The night was also notable for speeches from His Excellency Dr Saraki Dalhatu Tafida , the High Commissioner of Nigeria, who spoke warmly of the links which are being forged with Golden Shield for the internal development of Nigeria; in turn Sir Patrick Somerville of the International Professional Security Association stressed the achievement of Golden Shield in reaching twenty years of quality growth and the need for key industry bodies such as IPSA; and a literally rewarding moment came when the Commonwealth Youth Ambassador Mr Bayewumi Blackson Olaseni Bayewumi presented His Royal Highness with the 2009 Commonwealth Youth Award for Excellence, in recognition of his wonderful success in guiding and employing many young people. His Royal Highness replied in kind, and especially paid tribute to his dedicated staff who were all present and to new members,if you like, of the Golden Shield fraternity such as the Olive Group who are involved in major joint projects.

The occasion also marked the official opening of the new Golden Shield City office in St John’s Square, Clerkenwell staffed by a focused team of security management professionals. This important new facility will focus on the varied security needs of major companies and organisations throughout the City, utilising the extensive Group experience in such matters combined with the special needs and considerations of operating in this key area.
