About the Chairperson Awards
Following a tremendously successful inaugural year CEO Monthly is delighted to once again open submissions for the 2nd annual Chairperson Awards!
Devoted exclusively to rewarding the very best Chairpeople from across the globe, the Chairperson Awards 2022 aims to secure well-deserved recognition for participants and their corporation, applying our tried-and-tested process to select only the most deserving!
In recent years the roles and responsibilities of a Chairperson have evolved. An effective Chairperson is expected to be fully equipped with skills ranging from clear communication and a solid knowledge of their business, to providing all Board members with a voice. However, a successful Chairperson is able to inspire strong relationships founded on trust and confidence, and to drive forward the company’s climate and diversity commitments with proactive and thoughtful direction.
Now more than ever assertive investors and stakeholders are willing to vote for change, and such increased scrutiny on the Board has brought about enhanced effectiveness on equity, diversity, and inclusivity, and in particular has raised the stakes on climate disclosure and action. The bar is higher than ever, and we are here to spotlight the cream of the crop!
Our merit-based research process ensures that nominees are assessed based on various criteria such as: business performance, longevity, business growth (either sustained or rapid), any significant innovations as well as testimonials from colleagues or stakeholders. To determine our winners, the CEO Monthly team will gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources to be assessed by our panel alongside any material supplied by a nominating party or the nominee themselves.
Previous awardees include Dave Webster of 79th Luxury Living Ltd, who rose above the competition to achieve “Asset Management Chairman of the Year 2021”, in addition to SCL Education Group’s Carole Carson, who was commended for her extraordinary efforts as “Education Chairperson of the Year (UK)” in our 2021 edition.
This year’s cohort of successful Chairpeople will achieve welcome recognition for their efforts; they will be supplied with our complimentary package of promotional items and will be able to further utilise the CEO Monthly brand to spread the news of their success to our global circulation of 60,000+!
Should you like to be included in the Chairperson Awards 2022 or know of an individual deserving of a place on the shortlist, please submit a nomination using the online voting form. If you would like further information on how you can get involved or our processes, please reach out to awards co-ordinator Emma Pridmore via the contact details provided.
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.
