About the Chairperson Awards
CEO Monthly is proud to announce the launch of the Chairperson Awards 2023! Returning for the third consecutive year, this programme will shine a light on the dedicated Chairpeople whose flexibility and ingenuity has driven the expansion of business across the globe for yet another year.
Many industries grappled with various challenges during the pandemic, including financial instability, operational restrictions, workforce shortages, and supply chain disruptions. Companies have been forced to reinvent themselves and embrace new technologies and business practices in order to stay competitive in the post-covid era. The Chairperson is a key figure in shaping the identity of a company, whose influence extends across leadership, strategy, culture, and values.
The role of the Chair has evolved alongside this changing corporate landscape, in response to societal shifts that place increasing importance on sustainability, transparency, and ethical responsibility. Respondents in a 2021 survey of Chairpeople by the Savannah Group noted that board leadership has expanded in recent years and now encompasses non-traditional issues such as ESG agendas and D&I strategies. Today’s consumers look to support companies that match their social values, holding business leaders accountable for strategic decisions, and as such the modern Chairperson must take on a more visible role and act as a public representative for their company.
The team at CEO Monthly magazine will utilise our innovative research method to source the very best candidates for consideration in the Chairperson Awards 2023, ensuring that only the most dedicated and capable executives go on to be successful in the programme. We will be looking to recognise those Chairpeople who have fostered productive relationships within their board, boosted stakeholder engagement, developed a positive workplace culture, and prepared their company to handle future risks. For our winners, the Chairperson Awards 2023 will provide a fantastic platform to promote their services to a highly engaged audience of c-level executives and key corporate decision makers around the world.
There are no costs associated with taking part in the programme, and every recipient is entitled to a free celebratory package including a listing in our online winners’ directory. For those who want to get more out of their win, opting to upgrade to one of our advertising packages offers a variety of benefits. These packages are designed to maximise exposure and can be tailored to the specific marketing requirements of the winner. Some of the promotional tools we can provide include coverage in the dedicated Chairperson Awards supplement, e-newsletter features, SEO-optimised web articles, digital badges and logos, as well as physical items such as trophies.
If you would like to nominate either yourself or a deserving Chairperson you know for consideration in the programme, please don’t hesitate to complete the submission form on our website by clicking the ‘Vote Now’ button provided. CEO Monthly wishes the best of luck to all potential candidates in the Chairperson Awards 2023!
Researching our nominees
The CEO Monthly team work ardently to identify great business leaders, driving many of the nominations themselves. We also encourage external nominations via the subscribers of the magazine, online visitors, social media followers, clients and wider circulation. Nominating parties are invited to put forward either CEOs of third-party businesses whom they hold in high regard, or the CEO of the business which they are a part of.
Shortlisting our nominees
All nominees are formally requested to accept their nomination. Should any firm or individual rather decline at this point, they are simply taken out of the running. Those formally accepting are given the opportunity to submit additional materials in support of their nomination. Although there is no obligation to complete and supply material, we have found that many nominees value this stage, in the process, as much as our research team do.
Our dedicated research team will assess all information presented to them. The team gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources, which are assessed alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or the nominee themselves. The research team casts their final judgment, based on various criteria such as: business performance whilst the CEO has been in the position, any dramatic or positive change within the business since the CEO took the helm, feedback from any stakeholders during this time and any new innovations within the timeframe.
Our lucky winners
Once winners are selected, they are personally notified before any public announcement is made, allowing time for any communications throughout the wider business and the coordination of marketing strategies. Unfortunately, not everyone can be a winner; however, all who take part are encouraged to come back next year. Once the press embargo is lifted, details of our award winners will be made public via the website, award winners’ magazine and subscriber newsletter.
Share the exciting news
We are prepared to offer a range of promotional packages and items to winners in the Global CEO Excellence Awards, which vary from inclusion in the free-of-charge winners’ directory, to trophies, content in our magazine and on our website.
We encourage all winners to publicly announce their win independently in order to gain maximum exposure for them personally and for their business. Announcements via company websites, social media, via publicly released press releases, and through local and national press are all great ways of maximising the exposure which can be gained from such a great achievement. If you have need of further advice, on how to publicise your win, please feel free to get in touch. We are happy to assist our clients with their needs.
The Nomination Team can assist with answering any queries that you have regarding a nomination, or the process involved in taking part in one of our award programmes.
Please get in touch with us via email or over the phone if you have any questions - we are happy to help!
