Colin Morrison OBE

Colin was awarded the OBE “for charitable services to Vulnerable Young People”.

Colin is now a non-executive director, investor and consultant of private media companies in the UK and AsiaPacific, and also writes the Flashes & Flames long-form blog which was honoured last year in the Folio:100 in New York. He is also chair of the Department for Education’s new Boarding School Partnerships service and was – for 15 years – chair of the Royal National Children’s Foundation. The RNCF supports vulnerable young people at state and independent boarding schools throughout the UK.

Colin said: “Obviously I am thrilled but, like all such awards, it reflects a lot of hard work also by the many accomplished people I have worked so closely with in media companies and charities. In some ways, it helps embolden me for a year in which I will be taking on some new challenges with growing companies. These are testing times for traditional media but, for the best companies, there are as many opportunities as threats”.
