- 23 June, 2014 09:59
With five days left to nominate for the 2014 ARN ICT Industry Awards, there’s a great opportunity to recognise and applaud the achievements of those people in the industry who qualify under the Personal Innovation award category.
This category is all about individuals who go beyond the call of duty in their day-to-day professional lives. With the people the lifeblood of the channel, there’s never been a better time to reward these talented individuals, who can come from a vendor, distributor or reseller organisation, across four categories: customer service; sales excellence; technical excellence; and management excellence.
Nominations for the Customer Service Excellence award should outline you or your colleague’s innovative services skills, positive can-do attitude and responsiveness, higher-than-average customer retention ratio, and stellar customer knowledge.
The Sales Excellence award aims to promote an outstanding sales job in the past 12 months. Examples of success could include an ability to grow revenue, closing a significant or highly competitive deal, and customer and market responsiveness.
The Technical Excellence award shines the spotlight on one individual’s achievements around developing and managing technical solution sets, which contributed to their organisation’s prosperity.
The Management Excellence award recognises senior managers from the vendor, distributor or reseller community who have an outstanding track record in managing successful teams and/or organisations in the past 12 months. Examples could include leading a sales or marketing team to produce above target results, managing a team of customer service or technical professionals, growing a business through developing new product lines or through acquisition, managing teams /organisations who are independently rated as excellent working environments.
Now in its eighth year, the 2014 ARN ICT Industry Awards awards recognise and celebrate industry excellence over the past year. To be hosted at a Celebration Dinner on Wednesday, September 3, at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney, the 2014 awards theme is Celebrating Bravehearts – channel courage and triumph in the ICT industry.
Companies and individuals have a chance to self-nominate across seven categories including: community; personal innovation; vendor; distributor; reseller; telecommunications; and homegrown innovators. Each category has four or five questions as part of the award criteria. With a varied mix of questions, you have a chance to put your best foot forward in answering the criteria, but please limit your responses to the maximum word count set per question. (Please see the specific instructions for each individual question as your guide).
ARN strongly recommends companies only self-nominate to ensure the best chance of success with our 90-strong judging panel. Please note that you only need one nomination submission to be in the running for your chosen award (other nominations cannot be considered). Then simply enter your name, company name and email address and you’ll be in the running.
Nominations close on Friday, June 27, 2014.
