Graduation days are the most important occasions in the NEBOSH calendar, and we want to ensure that your ceremony is a special occasion for you and your guests to enjoy. This year we will be arranging two ceremonies which will be held at the Symphony Hall, Birmingham, UK on the 5 September.

Guest of Honour

Louise Adamson, Director, Michael’s storyLouise taggart

Louise had a successful career as an employment lawyer, working for a top Scottish legal firm, before her wee (younger) brother’s death turned her attentions to the world of health and safety.

Through school, university and beyond, she had “the fear” when it came to public speaking. But, speaking to the hundreds upon hundreds who attended Michael’s funeral meant she’d never again be scared to stand in front of an audience ever again.

She now uses the skills she learned in her role as a professional support lawyer and combines them with the strong voice she has discovered, applying them in the health and safety field, seeking to ensure others are able to head home safe to their loved ones at the end of every working day or night.

Louise is also a trustee of health and safety charity Scottish Hazards and works to secure long-term funding for a health and safety advice, training and support service for workers. Her primary aim in all she does is to stop anyone else from losing their life or their loved one in a preventable workplace incident.

She is a NEBOSH Ambassador, was named the “Most Influential Person in Health and Safety in the UK” by Safety and Health Practitioner in 2018 and received the REHIS Meritorious Endeavours Award 2019.

Louise lives in Edinburgh with her two young sons. She enjoys a long walk, a not-so-long cycle, and doing an online gym class. Her hope is that she’ll soon be able to get back to kicking a ball about at a women’s football fitness class.

2019 Graduation feedback

2019’s Graduation and Awards Ceremony, saw Louise Adamson praise the achievements of NEBOSH Diploma holders, tell her brother’s story and motivate them to make a difference and save lives. Nearly 1,000 guests came together to celebrate the success of Diplomates in the prestigious Ceremony, which took place at the University of Warwick.

The Graduation and Awards Ceremony is a very special opportunity for NEBOSH to celebrate with Diploma holders, Learning Partners, their family, and friends. As health, safety, and environmental practitioners they are playing an important role in saving lives, achieving high standards and encouraging safer practice.

Here is what some of 2019’s Diplomates had to say:

  • “Really good event and the perfect way to celebrate all that hard work.”
  • “The event was organised very well, right from the pre-information and through to the parking and actual event. It is obvious a lot of hard work goes into these events.”
  • “The whole event from start to finish was brilliant. Very slick and I really enjoyed my experience.”

Here are a few photos which capture the special day. Alumni members can view even more photos on the Alumni website (login required).
