Bespoke awards strategy

In the same way as your marketing strategy makes sure your marketing activity brings value to your business, your awards strategy ensures that all the awards you enter deliver great value too.

Our research shows that businesses with a bespoke annual awards strategy win more awards than those without. Read on to find out what's included, and why every awards strategy we create produces award winners…


Full business assessment to make sure you only enter the awards you have the best chance of winning, and that meet all your goals. Includes, comprehensive awards research, industry awards analysis, previous winner and and competitor research.


Your awards strategy will be informed by exclusive behind-the-scenes awards insights from our vast experience of judging and partnering with the business awards industry. We will reveal the secrets to success and make sure your plan puts you on the podium.


Your strategy will be guided by leading awards expert Donna O'Toole, and will contain handpicked awards and categories. Donna will explain which awards you have a good chance of winning, when you should enter, and how you should approach each entry with the right evidence to win.


We will include awards that offer you PR, media, partnerships, and high impact speaking opportunities. We will even include all the timing and budgeting information you need to know to drive your marketing activities, amplify your brand and maximise your return on awards investment.

What are the benefits of awards?

Winning awards raise your profile and brand awareness — leading to increased revenue and investment opportunities, and smarter recruitment.

“Awards mean so much.
They mean the world to your team, they are well received by your clients, and they help you to win all sorts of new opportunities.
Awards are assets that make business easier.
An award makes it easier to attract talent, make sales, and do deals.”
