The IMAGINE THIS team
Imagine This Senior Project Team:.
Guy Singleton: Managing Director
In 2016 Guy Singleton was presented with the prestigious ‘Special Recognition’ award from CEDIA EMEA for services to CEDIA and the industry as a whole.
The introduction onto stage by the CEDIA EMEA Chairman follows:
This category recognises the outstanding contribution of individuals to the work of CEDIA along with growth of the industry.
Tonight’s winner is someone who joined CEDIA in 2001.
In his fifteen years as a member, he has given hundreds of volunteer hours to CEDIA, working to develop industry recognised standards and share his extensive knowledge with others.
Most recently, he has acted as CEDIA’s representative as a technical expert in drawing up a new Code of Practice for Low and Extra Low Voltage Direct Current Power Distribution in Buildings – possibly the longest name for any standard!
We will all benefit from his selflessness.
Over the years, he has served on the CEDIA Education Committee and taught as a CEDIA Instructor on CEDIA’s behalf, presenting as an instructor both in the UK, and further afield in Europe and India and imminently in America as part of the education programme at CEDIA Dallas and as a judge on the CEDIA US Awards.
Throughout his volunteer work, this man carries himself with great humility. He will probably hate the fact that he is coming on stage in front of this huge audience to accept our thanks and acclaim; we cannot deny it is very well deserved!
Guy has also been chosen to judge the US CEDIA awards, ASIAN awards and ultimately the global awards.
More recently Guy invented and owns the patent on a home theatre design software called “The Cinema Designer” which is used throughout the industry at large.
