For two days last week the Institute of Sales Management welcomed professionals from across the sales industry to take part in the Finalist Judging, to determine who will be the recipient of one of the 17 prestigious BESMA awards for 2018.

I was personally humbled by the overwhelming number of award nominations that the ISM received this year. After speaking with the some of our amazing judges, expertly led by our incomparable Head Judge, Kerry Nutley, who give up their own valuable time to support these industry awards and help us to ensure their credibility, it is apparent that the quality and standard of this year’s entries was higher than ever before. Furthermore, the breadth and depth of the nominations proves to me that more and more companies are committed to seeking ways in which they can celebrate and recognise outstanding sales achievement.

As with everyone involved, we, like you, now await the BESMA ceremony itself where, on 26th October at the prestigious Grosvenor House Hotel, we will all discover who the winners are. It promises to be a brilliant evening and even if you are not involved as a finalist, I strongly urge you to join us for what will be an exceptional night of recognition, celebration and entertainment, one that if you have never attended before, you will not soon forget and one that in my opinion, the sales industry richly deserves.

To everyone who took the time to enter the awards; it’s amazing to see how many people were being nominated for their achievements and, as cliché as it sounds I wish everyone could win. To our Head Judge and judges, many of who were judging for the first time; you were exemplary in your professionalism, consistency and dedication; it’s not as easy as some might think. The ISM and indeed the sales industry were lucky enough to benefit from your expertise and without you, we would not be able to offer the credibility which is so vital to making BESMA what it is. Lastly, but by no means least, the ISM team; it’s a painstaking process ensuring that everything runs as smoothly as it possibly can and you all did a fantastic job in making judging day(s) what it was.

Please visit the ISM website for details on booking your place at BESMA or contact one of the team, we cannot wait to see you there.
