Spotting, and managing talent is both an art and a necessity. For any organisation, success starts with focusing on what matters more – 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 already making a substantial contribution. They are the ones who embrace new challenges with imagination and energy, and who show resilience and determination in the face of adversity. The ones who are good at gaining support from others and who are unafraid to make mistakes – and learn from them.
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.
