Meet the Judges

To keep the Awards fair and transparent, we invite independent judges to assess entries in each category. Becoming a judge is a tremendous opportunity to learn about the latest business developments, network with top professionals and offer your expert feedback on the entries.

Many judges return each year, to check out the buzz and catch new ideas circulating among business people. One judge has been with us 20 times!

Last year, we also founded The Judge Club, where our most experienced judges get together to review the judging process and make recommendations for future improvements.

We are honoured to have esteemed business professionals as members of the Judge Club, and we will continue to invite new members. Why not join them?
