Standing behind the Podium of Greatness, Professor Patrick Businge who is also the founder of Greatness University said, ‘In a planet where most people live in the sea of sameness, Greatness University looks for people who are doing ordinary things in extraordinary ways. These are the civility humanitarians: people who help people and value the people they help. Professor Patrick Businge congratulated the recipients of the World Greatness Awards for being recognized whilst they are still alive, for more often, people’s greatness is celebrated when they are dead.

When asked why she chose the Luton Hoo, the co-creator of the World Greatness Awards Dr Julian Businge said, ‘When we first visited Luton Hoo, we found the Mansion House a symbol of greatness, the serene gardens were an oasis of peace, and we specifically chose the Upper Romanov Chapel because of its art that depicted eternal greatness’. This greatness was felt by the American Entrepreneur and World Civility Ambassador Dr Christine Kozaschuk who said, ‘Its an honor to be part of this… I can never imagine standing here in the greatness of what is going on tonight’.
