The Global Leaders in Consulting are not only making a huge impact in the profession, for sure, but their initiative is exemplary and can be felt far and wide, in fact, it can be felt worldwide.
Q: When do the Global Leaders in Consulting nominations open?
A: Nominations will be open between May 21 and August. 23 2019. Full results, including gala coverage, will be published in the January 2020 issue of Consulting magazine.
Q: How are the Global Leaders in Consulting recognized?
A: The Global Leaders in Consulting are recognized a few ways: One, with an editorial feature in the January 2020 issue of the magazine. Two, winners are recognized at a celebratory gala awards dinner in London on December 5. In addition, Consulting issues a press release highlighting the winners.
Q: What does the editorial judging committee look for in a nomination?
A: Without getting into specifics, the committee is always impressed by measurable metrics and quantifiable results. Specifics are important. That means a cost savings and revenue generation isn’t nearly as memorable as a generated $50 million in revenue for a client or saved the client $15 million for example.
Q: How strict are the word limits found in the nomination form?
A: Pretty strict, although slightly over is OK. However, the limits are there for a reason and going way over the limits won't help your nominee's chances. Be concise and to the point as much as possible. Many of our recognition awards generate between 300 and 500 nominations, so make your nomination stand out.
Q: Is it for U.S and U.K.-based consultants only?
A: No, the Global Leaders in Consulting is, as the name implies, a global award. We fully expect the winners will be worldwide. However, winners are expected to attend the awards dinner in London on December 5.
