Our very own Andrew Sparsis has once again been included in the Who’s Who of Britain’s Business Elite 2010 book (the definitive directory of everyone who’s anyone in Britain, and beyond, today). The most recent entry (after Andrew) is : Ed Miliband narrowly beats brother David to become leader of the British Labour party.
SO, HOW ARE PEOPLE CHOSEN FOR INCLUSION IN THIS ELITE DIRECTORY?
In the words of Who’s Who: “An invitation to appear in Who’s Who recognises distinction and influence. The majority of Who’s Who biographees are included in recognition of the distinction they have attained in their professional lives, and the influence they exert on British society, ranging from politicians and academics to musicians and film directors. Whilst the majority of entrants are British, notable individuals from across the world are included due to their presence and importance in British and international life.
The holders of some posts, such as MPs, senior judges and high-ranking civil servants, are invited to have an entry as a matter of course, when the appointment itself is of general public interest. For those who do not fit into these categories, a Selection Board meets regularly during the preparation for each edition of Who’s Who to discuss potential entrants. The Selection Board reviews those people whose professions are less rigidly structured, such as artists, actors and sportsmen, as well as professors, scientists and businesspeople. Prominent figures in numerous fields are considered by the Board on the basis of their continuing achievements, and ultimately selected due to their exceptional pre-eminence. Where necessary, the Selection Board consults those with specialist knowledge.
