Lawrence Werth’s contribution to the hearing healthcare profession was incredibly significant, not only with PC Werth but also as the Chairman of British Hearing Aid Manufacturers Association (BHAMA).

He was, without question a leading authority figure in the audiology community, although what will always stay with me is Lawrence’s enthusiasm for the profession and it’s people.   

Lawrence had a natural, academic instinct with regards to audiology, appreciating and understanding the complexities of manufacture, distribution through to provision and the end user.  This ability to appreciate the industry from it’s many facets gained him respect from all areas and will ensure his memory and legacy will stay with us.  

He was omnipresent at all events and thrived in the company of people happy to debate the latest topics.  He greeted innovation with a professional eye but  with the look and enthusiasm of a child at Christmas.

Above all else he was a gentleman in the true sense of the word and will be greatly missed.

Thank you Lawrence for your guidance, advice and friendship.
