CPD Award

At its AGM the BIID also presented its two Institute awards, the CPD Award and the Merit Award, to recognise the achievements of individual BIID Members who have made a valuable contribution to the institute. The CPD Award honours the BIID member who gained the most structured hours in that year. This year’s recipient was BIID Registered interior designer Chloe Bullock, who accrued 846 CPD hours between 1 April 2022 and 31 March 2023.

Merit Award

The Merit Award honours a BIID member who has particularly excelled in three key criteria: excellence in interior design practice; a contribution to the development of the Institute and a commitment to the wider field of design education. The 2023 award was presented to Susie Rumbold.

As a past BIID President, Susie oversaw the launch of the Institute’s online learning platform, The BIID Knowledge Hub. She was responsible for helping to raise the profile of the BIID both at home and abroad, including leading a diplomatic trade mission to Japan in November 2016. 

Most recently Susie authored the BIID Interior Design Project Book. Published by RIBA Books, which has fast become the must-have reference tool for running interior design projects of all sizes.
