Steven Mifsud, Director of Direct Access Consulting, said:
It is an absolute honor to be commended for exporting British expertise in the possibility of achievement. Other countries often turn to the UK with an interest in understanding how people with disabilities can be engaged and what is the best practice in designing accessible buildings.
Britain is truly Great and we have the expertise from which the world can benefit. I was born deeply deaf, so I have faced many obstacles throughout my life, this award means so much in terms of being able to demonstrate that I can be successful in exporting and being recognized.
I hope this MBE gives confidence to the importance of international trade. Many people with disabilities do not get the opportunities they deserve, many give up early barriers. I hope this will not only encourage general businesses to export but also show people with disabilities that with hard work and getting the right advice, opportunities exist. Receiving this award from Her Majesty the Queen is truly the greatest honor of my life.
