(Download the form at the bottom of this page)
What our panel are looking for:
A fully completed nomination form with as much detail and supporting evidence as possible!
Supporting evidence/additional documentation, external references, testimonials, papers, books, wesbites
The unsung heroes of the NLP Community - those people who use NLP in their community or in their workplace to have the greatest impact and positive benefit for their clients, friends, family and society in general.
The panel will be made up of people who may not be part of the NLP community and will judge PURELY ON THE CONTENT OF THE NOMINATION FORM. A form that effectively says “You know who I mean” will not be enough information for someone who does not know who you mean! Please do as much research and provide as much evidence to back up your nomination. Saying that someone has achieved something particular will always carry more weight if there is evidence such as a letter of thanks/recommendation, newspaper article, online reference or independent witnesses.
The narrative of the nomination is also important to allow the non-NLP-trained panel members to understand how the nominee has made an impact. This narrative may also be used for in winner’s press releases, national and international media. So make it the best you can!
