David Gibson, from Ballinderry, ..., 15 Sept 2013 [cached]
David Gibson, from Ballinderry, is the first person in Europe to receive the accolade, from the United States Association of Small Business and Entrepreneurship.
He was recognised for his work in promoting enterprise education throughout Queen's, the UK's Entrepreneurial University of the Year in 2009. His work has seen him introduce a model of enterprise teaching into courses not traditionally associated with enterprise, including nursing and the arts.

David Gibson
An enterprising senior lecturer from Queen's University Management School has received national acclaim at the first ever enterprise educators awards.
David Gibson, from Broughshane in Co.Antrim, has become one of the first people to win the `educator highly commended´ award from the National Council for Graduate Entrepreneurship (NCGE) and Enterprise Educators UK (EEUK) at its recent annual award ceremony, which celebrates excellence within enterprise education.
His prestigious commendation recognises him as "a trail-blazer" for entrepreneurial education. Among his achievements is developing an enterprise for life education model which is embedded across the entire curriculum at Queen's. It has also been adopted by universities in China, India, Canada, Sri Lanka and throughout the UK and was recognised as a best practice model by the EEC.
David said: "Being recognised as a 'highly commended enterprise educator' is very rewarding to me as enterprise has been the major focus of my career in higher education and I am very grateful to the NCGE and EEUK for their support. What is more important is being able to help students to be more enterprising in these uncertain times."
Alison Price, Director of Educator Development for the National Council for Graduate Entrepreneurship, said: "David has been highly commended for his impressive work within entrepreneurship education.
"We are delighted to recognise David's work both within Queen's but also to support others working in this important agenda."
David is a Senior NICENT (Northern Ireland Centre for Entrepreneurship) Teaching Fellow based in Queen's University Management School.
The only recipient of a National Teaching Fellowship Award for enterprise education by the Higher Education Academy in the UK, he is the author of a leading book on enterprise competencies called The E Factor, which is now used in over 100 universities, including Cambridge, where it is a core text. It is aimed at helping all those involved in the learning and teaching of student business or social enterprise.
David has recently been appointed a Visiting Professor at Riga International School of Economics and Business Administration in Latvia and has been asked to apply his enterprise model in the Baltic States. He will also represent Europe in a major enterprise conference in Calcutta, India.

Queen's University lecturer David Gibson has become the first recipient of a National Teaching Fellowship for Enterprise in Education in the UK. From Broughshane, Co. Antrim, the Senior Teaching Fellow in Entrepreneurship in the School of Management and Economics at Queen's was recognised for his evolving teaching practices, including inspiring business simulation projects similar to the BBC programme, 'Dragon's Den'.
David was chosen from 223 nominations and is one of 50 individual award winners for 2007. He will receive £10,000 to support his learning and teaching activities at an awards ceremony in London on 19 September.
Speaking about his teaching methods, David said: "The focus of my teaching is not to show students how to become the next Richard Branson but to be more enterprising and innovative in whichever career they choose."
Since joining the School in 2002, David has also embedded enterprise into the curriculum within 24 disciplines across the University. He has also been recognised for his business simulation assessment project where students are assessed on their performance at 'live' networking events and on their negotiating skills.
Since being published in 2006, David's book 'Efactor' has been adopted as a core text by over 30 Universities in the UK. Another of David's publications 'Student Enterprise - The Streetwise Guide' is due for publication in September 2007.
