What’s more, we’ve extended the deadline for nominations until Friday January 29 so that you don’t miss out on the chance to nominate your leadership heroes. has created the awards to celebrate the people that are role models within their organisations and raise the bar for their competitors.

The winners will show the qualities of extraordinary leadership and be able to demonstrate the positive impact this has had.

Impact can be measured in a number of ways, including improving financial performance, organisational culture or external reputation, overcoming adversity and challenges or by enabling other people succeed.

The shortlisted individuals and organisations will be those who have made a difference through a real desire to make things better.
