This award is open to individuals or companies providing company secretarial or governance services to other organisations. In this category we recognise providers that have gone significantly beyond their basic service to provide a more valued, and valuable, contribution. Where possible you must support your nomination for this award with testimonials from the client(s) concerned. Please note the judging panel may contact some or all of the client companies you use as evidence in your application. There is space at the end of the form for you to provide us with contact details of these clients. Remember to get their permission before submitting their details to us.

We also accept nominations directly from client companies. If you would like to nominate your service provider please contact us.

  • delivered beyond the basic service for which they are paid
  • added value for the client and made a significant impact on the overall performance of the client’s organisation(s)
