Wow, what a night Friday 17th November 2023 was! The Institute of Leadership held the first-ever Leadership Awards at The Hilton Hotel London Bankside. Antoinette’s second book, Confident Career Conversations had been announced as a finalist for the Leadership Book of the Year Award. There was stiff competition with 17 titles having been shortlisted as finalists in this category.
The awards were created to celebrate the remarkable individuals who embody the true essence of inspiring leadership across all levels. From the rising stars of young professionals to the senior leaders and their exceptional teams, The Insitute of Leadership set out to honour those who have made a resoundingly positive impact within their respective fields.
The awards are not just recognising individuals but they also shining a light on the visionary organisations that have become beacons of inspiration in the field of leadership.
The Leadership Awards serve as a credible recognition of these great leaders and pay homage to the trailblazers who are shaping the future, fueling innovation, and leading with unwavering passion and purpose.
The Award Entries
Despite this being the first year of this brand-new awards event, there were over 250 people attending with 62 organisations and individuals shortlisted for 10 awards.
Antoinette’s book Confident Career Conversations was shortlisted against some incredible titles and authors. We’re hugely proud to have won the runner-up award in the Leadership Book of the Year category 2023.
One of our values is to be helpful. As specialists in mentoring we believe in the importance of sharing wisdom and experience for the benefit of others. This is what inspired me to write ‘Confident Career Conversations’, so to have received such recognition from such an esteemed organisation as The Insitute of Leadership is a real honour.
Antoinette was presented the award by Trustee Andrew Kincaid as part of the award celebrations.
