Sunnyvale, CA (PressExposure) September 20, 2013 -- Nair & Co., a global integrated solutions provider helping companies expand internationally, is proud to be named as the sponsor of the Churchill Club "Magical Team" Award. Sir Alan Collins, the firm's advisor to the Board, will be presenting the award at The Churchills 2013.
This is the third year running that Nair & Co. has endorsed the Churchill Club by sponsoring the "Magical Team" award category. This year Sir Alan will bestow the honour on the NASA Mars rover Curiosity team-- for their collaborative efforts which yielded such an amazing result. The Churchills awards ceremony will take place on the 26th of September at 17:30 at the Santa Clara Marriott, in Santa Clara, California.
The focus of the Churchill Club is to provide an independent forum in which unscripted conversations may result in new ideas, enlivened dreams and personal motivation. Correspondingly, The Churchills' aim is to inspire individuals and organisations to take positive action. During the awards ceremony each inspirer will present their perspective and insight for which they excelled.
"I am truly honoured, on behalf of Nair & Co., to have the opportunity to recognise a team of individuals whose collaborative efforts resulted in technology that has provided insight into our universe far beyond the imagination and current science. The NASA Mars rover Curiosity team has lived up to the spirit of the award, 'you guys nailed it,' and I am proud to recognise them for their accomplishments," said Sir Alan.
"It's wonderful to have NASA's people and their accomplishments recognised by the Silicon Valley business community," said NASA Mars Science Laboratory Project Manager Jim Erickson of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California. "This award, in particular, is a testament to the dedication and hard work of the entire Curiosity rover team worldwide."
"Nair & Co. congratulates the Churchill Club, on the continuing tradition of the Churchill Awards. We applaud the organisation for its mission to encourage innovation, economic growth and societal benefit, and recognising those who are making a difference," added Sir Alan.
The Churchill Club Awards acknowledge companies and individuals for extraordinary achievements in the areas of innovation, social benefit, collaboration and leadership. By highlighting excellence, the goal of The Churchills is to inspire others to pursue innovation that can result in economic and globally beneficial growth. More than 500 CEOs and other senior executives, venture capitalists, entrepreneurs and other business and technology professionals, and influential members of the press will be attending the awards ceremony and the preceding conference, changing the Game 2013.
"The Churchills award winners reflect the value and success that comes from innovative and collaborative thinking," said Karen Tucker, CEO of the Churchill Club. "In keeping with this spirit, we are delighted to have Sir Alan Collins from Nair & Co. present our 'Magical Team' award to the worthy recipients of the NASA Mars rover Curiosity."
Last year, Nair & Co. sponsored and presented the same award to Box and the year before that to Microsoft Kinect for Xbox 360. "It is an honor to be a part of a ceremony whose message is to pursue innovation and share in collaborative environments that breed success," noted Sir Alan about his participation the past few years of the event.
