Top Tips for Completing a Nomination

One sure-fire way of getting noticed for the NatWest everywoman Awards is a really good, well completed nomination form. Make sure you take your time over your nomination, so that you tell us absolutely everything that displays the nominee's brilliance, and double check that all the contact details are correct.

  • Word limits aren't a recommendation - nominations that include answers that are below the word limit are very unlikely to be considered
  • Give us enough detail so we can fully grasp the nominee's achievements
  • Be specific but make sure you stick to the point

Business success

  • How has the business evolved and grown - has it moved location is it local/international, taken on employees, has the turnover increased, has the distribution/delivery branched out into new territories/industries?
  • What’s the year-on-year increase within the business – staff, turnover, customers?
  • What impact has the business had on its industry sector? Is it beating competitors, or providing strong competition to bigger names?
  • What were the goals when the business started? Has it over-achieved? Has the business vision changed?

Overcoming challenges

  • Did the nominee face any financial restrictions or funding/investment barriers?
  • Were there any legal issues?
  • Were there any personal issues that had to be overcome - e.g. family commitments, confidence?
  • Did the nominee learn new skills for the business, take courses or gain qualifications?
  • Were there any economic issues that acted as a barrier – unemployment or having to let staff go? Did the nominee have a previous business that didn't work out?
  • Did the nominee have to break industry barriers in making the business a success – e.g. making a name for themselves in a male-dominated industry, or entering a new and untested industry?

Personal achievements

  • What achievements has the nominee made in their business career – have they won any awards, qualifications or accreditations?
  • What personal achievements has the nominee made that has inspired them to become successful in business – have they climbed a mountain, completed a marathon, invested in other successful businesses or lobbied the local council for change?
