2021 Judges

Leading consultants, business thinkers and experts, based in the UK, Europe, North America and Australia, selected solely on the basis of their expertise.

Message from the Chairman of Judges

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

So how do we go about the judging? Firstly I scrutinise all the entries, allocate to categories and select the shortlists. Quality is the sole determinant, so for some categories there are only a handful of finalists.

Entries are then sent to panels of three to four judges per category, often based in different countries. The judges are all highly experienced subject matter experts. After detailed consultation, each panel presents their recommended list of winners at a Zoom meeting of all the judges, with those present debating and deciding the final positions.

I hope you choose to take part this year.

Good luck!

Andrew Hedley
