The One to Watch

Spotting and managing talent is both an art and a necessity. For any organisation, success starts with your people – how you develop them, how you value and support them, and how you bring out their full potential.

This award recognises the rising stars of governance. These are the people who, even with just a few years’ service behind them, are making a substantial contribution. They are the ones who are proactive in embracing new challenges, who show imagination and energy, and who are resilient in the face of adversity. The ones who help and support colleagues and who are unafraid to learn from their mistakes.

The judges are looking for nominees who demonstrate these qualities and more, who make a significant and positive impact in the organisations for which they work. They are looking for evidence of why nominees are destined to get to the top of the profession, and why in particular this is the year they should win an award.

We regret we cannot accept self-nominations for this award.
