10 Reasons Why You Should Apply For The FL Leadership Summit And Awards 2023

The Forward Ladies Leadership Summit & Awards has over the years brought together women who are empowering teams, creating innovative products, challenging and breaking glass ceilings and uplifting communities across the UK and the globe.

As it gets better every year, we are excited to launch this year’s ”The Forward Ladies Leadership Summit and Awards” to identify and recognize the women breaking barriers. 

Our theme for this year is #Breaking Barriers

Now, what if we told you that nominations and applications for our 2023 FL Leadership Summit and Awards are opened until the 8th of September, 2023?

What are you personally doing to break barriers? Know any leader impacting society at scale? Why not share that journey and impact with us by entering?

Here are the reasons why you should:

1. REFLECT ON WHAT YOU DO BEST

The application process can often force you to properly appraise your professional life to date and provide a valuable opportunity to adopt a new perspective, evaluate your strengths and weaknesses, and review your overarching strategy. The reflection will help you identify ways you could improve and do better in the future.

2. BUILD CONFIDENCE

Our alumni have told us that winning the awards has given them the confidence and courage to make bold career moves. Being around all these inspirational, trailblazing women makes us all want to be better and reach higher for our goals.

3. WELL-EARNED PUBLICITY

Winning an award can enable you to enhance your professional profile and visibility further and directly and dramatically impact opportunities made available to you. It’s an opportunity to improve and build on your personal brand and provide a real competitive advantage when seeking new opportunities. It is a great accolade to have, so make sure people know you have been nominated and shortlisted.

4. AN ENDORSEMENT FROM THOSE IN THE KNOW

Winning a business award, being shortlisted or simply being nominated is an endorsement and provides a valuable opportunity to assess your achievements relative to that of your peers. It is a reassuring recognition that helps make the hard work worth it.

5. NETWORKING

Networking through the awards with other business leaders and professionals can advance your career and present opportunities to connect and support women leaders.

6. TRUSTED EXPERT

Some of our previous winners have been offered public speaking and media commentator opportunities as a result of the visibility created through the awards.

7. ALUMNI OPPORTUNITIES

The awards programme presents an opportunity to become part of an exclusive alumni network. We host exclusive events for our alumni, partners and sponsors.

8. BOOST STAFF MORALE

Achieving recognition in a prestigious business award and attending these events with your team can positively encourage staff morale. It can boost motivation and acknowledges the contribution of your team and colleagues.

9. ATTRACT TALENT

Equally, you may find it easier to attract top-quality people due to your awards’ success. Everyone wants to work for an inspirational and award-winning leader and business.

10. THE AWARD!

And at the end of all this, there’s the chance that you may take home an extraordinary award. Something physical that you can see, touch and hold in your hands. A reminder that hard work does pay off.

We are putting the brightest spotlight on remarkable women breaking barriers. You too can be one of those!
