Hints and tips when writing your entries

When reading an entry to the Top 100, the judges will consider various elements that need to be included. You do, of course, need to take in to account the category you are entering and only apply the points that are applicable to your case.

 

Explain how you have demonstrated success and impact, for example:

  • Short and long term motivation
  • Short and long term impact in your sector
  • Your ESG commitments
  • Customer, community or societal benefits
  • Financial results
  • Employee benefits
  • Investor benefits

Also, please try to:

  • Clearly state success and impact metrics and evidence, try not to leave any gaps in your data (i.e. don’t cherry pick which figures/stats you provide as the judges won’t have the full picture)
  • Explain how and why you identified a need for your product/service/change/initiative and what planning/development went in to it.
  • Highlight the market reaction e.g. press coverage, customer feedback, industry awards and anything else you may think is relevant.
  • Provide projections for future market share, distribution and sales volumes. As always, a clear strategic rationale and measurable results are key
