LONDON, ENGLAND, UK, August 19, 2020 / -- Greatness University, a UK based institution and first ever establishment to research and document greatness has inducted the Sir Clyde Rivers Presidential Greatness Award in its culture of honour and curriculum. This happened on the first ever World Greatness Day on 15th August 2020. According to Founding Chancellor and Creator of the World Greatness Awards, Professor Patrick Businge, the Sir Clyde Rivers Presidential Award will be given per year to someone who has been a civility humanirian, birthed a nation, system, foundation or ideology and led it greatness.

Speaking from the Glorious Luton Hoo Hotel in the outskirts of London and addressing over 2000 viewers from all the 6 continents, Professor Patrick Businge said, “We at greatness university are excited to create this award in honour of the world changing work Sir Clyde Rivers has done to change nations.”

The launch of this award took place on 15th August 2020 at the occasion when Greatness University celebrated the first ever World Greatness Day and hosted its first ever virtual World Greatness Awards to honour civility humanitarians: people who help people, value the people they help and empower them to empower others. Created together with his wife Professor Julian Businge, the World Greatness Awards are now like the OSCARS for the World's Greatest Civility Humanitarians' which are given to modern day heroes, role models and living saints.

Speaking from his office in California due to the inability to travel because of the Coronavirus pandemic, Sir Clyde Rivers appreciated the honour and said, “I don’t take this award lightly. It is an honour anytime someone recognises you and to have a Presidential Award at Greatness University in my name to give out to the top people of the world that’s truly an honour.” I am humbled and thank you for this kind gesture.

It is in the Mansion House on the rainy afternoon where, in 1947 Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip had their honey moon and on 26th June 1948, the wartime British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill addressed over 110,000 people and thanked them for their support during the Second World War; was the location where Greatness University launched the Sir Clyde Rivers Presidential Award and appreciated his work of brining the message of civility to the world.

Preceding the event was the induction of over 70 people from 6 continents into the World Book of Greatness 2020 and it too broadcast from the Glorious Luton Hoo Hotel: a very popular location in the UK and has been used by film makers for films such as Four Weddings and a Funeral, Enigma, Eyes Wide Shut, Inspector Morse, Nicholas Nickleby, Vanity Fair, Bleak House and now the home for the World Greatness Awards. Also called ‘The Guinness Book of Records for Greatness’, The World Book of Greatness is a yearly almanac which documents the World’s Greatest Civility Humanitarians of all times such royals, entrepreneurs, authors, models, artists, educators, and many others. Professor Patrick Businge congratulated the recipients of his greatness award for being recognized whilst they are still alive, for more often, people's greatness is celebrated when they are dead. He went on to say that people need to live their greatness every day and it is ok to be great.
