Help with planning

Most companies take a reactive approach to awards – waiting until the CEO says “I want to win this award”, or an organizer puts out a call for entries before they start preparing a submission.

A better approach, taken by a minority of organisations (typically those more successful at entering awards), would be somewhat more strategic not to mention proactive.

Here are some of the ways in which we can help you increase your win rate:

Creating a thorough awards strategy

Which awards should we enter?”

What should we enter into these awards?”

Are we likely to win?”

We get asked these questions all the time and they are very tough to answer.

For businesses to answer these questions comprehensively, and therefore have the building blocks of a thorough, trustworthy awards strategy, we offer a comprehensive Awards Strategy Development service.

This service involves:

  1. An awards strategy planning session (phone or video conference), to help you make key decisions about your awards objectives that will shape your strategy.
  2. Brainstorming your best stories, or the best components of a whole-business story, and filtering/testing them using a highly interactive workshop format (site visit).
  3. Matchmaking* the most award-friendly stories with awards that meet your objectives and thus create a detailed plan for the next year. This typically requires a follow-up review to refine the list further.
  4. Developing a budget for the whole plan (optional).
  5. Listing key next steps (such as getting approval and gathering evidence).
  6. Uploading the plan to an online Awards Planner, which ensures the deadlines and links stay up-to-date and the right people are sent reminders for your chosen awards.

This comprehensive service will ensure you enter the right stories into the right categories of the right awards, within budget and with the maximum chances of winning.
