John Narraway has received a nomination for outstanding achievement in technology from the Government of Ontario, Canada.

The Premier’s Awards honour the important social and economic contribution that college graduates make to Ontario and throughout the world. The awards were launched in 1992 and are administered by Colleges Ontario.

Mr Narraway, a Bermudian businessman who graduated from Loyalist College in 1992, has gone on to a career that has spanned marketing and technology for more than 20 years in Bermuda.

He is a founder of TEDxBermuda and involved in businesses exploring the exciting future of blockchain and flying cars.

“I am incredibly humbled to be recognised and nominated for this prestigious award,” Mr Narraway said.

“The world of technology has changed tremendously since my days in college, but concepts I learnt then, have stood the test of time and are just as relevant today and into the future.”

Presented annually, the Premier’s Awards recognise the global achievements of graduates in the following seven categories — apprenticeship, business, community services, creative arts and design, health sciences, recent graduate and technology.
