Hear direct from our Judges..
Dr Bernadette Adeyileka-Tracz, Founder and Chief Operating Officer (COO), Diabetes Africa
When judging the awards I will be looking for entries that demonstrate real impact in their target communities, backed-up (where possible) with metrics. How did you or your association make a difference? What was the positive change as a result of your efforts? How significant was this change in context of the existing environment? Associations that can show this clearly and concisely will definitely have an advantage
FRANCES BASKERVILLE, SECRETARY-GENERAL, CIRM
We will want to see adaptability and innovation in work practices. I will look for flexibility from the top (towards individuals and their circumstances) and in particular adjustments to working hours with regard to childcare etc. I’ll also look for confirmation that there was / is Investment in hardware support and genuine investment in the mental health of the workforce. It would be nice to read about trust, and how much this is a part of delivering the service and also whether there are plans to recover and revert to work methods as before, or whether changes made will remain. (ie whether COVID was an opportunity for change and actually a positive event or the opposite.)
CATHERINE LOGAN, GBTA
In a world of free content associations need to differentiate themselves by being laser focused on delivering member value in innovative ways with a not for profit budget – that’s what I am looking for.
