2018 Judges

The Awards judges are leading international management consultants or experts, based in the UK, Europe, North America and Australia, selected solely on the basis of their expertise.

JUDGING CRITERIA

Andrew Hedley
Chairman of Judges

The professional services awards industry is a crowded place and whilst a pure focus on management and leadership helps differentiate the MPF awards, those choosing to enter will no doubt want re-assurance as to the rigour applied by the panel of judges.

So how do we go about the judging? Firstly I scrutinise all the entries, selecting the shortlist for each category. Quality is the sole determinant, so for some categories there are only a handful of finalists.

Entries are then sent to groups of three judges per category, often based in different countries. The judges are all highly experienced matter subject experts. After detailed consultation, each judging team present their recommended list of winners at the judges’ dinner, with all present debating and deciding the final positions.

I hope you choose to take part this year.

Good luck!
