Shout about your success
Thank you to everyone who joined us for a fantastic night at the IWFM Impact Awards ceremony last month. Guests looked resplendent as they arrived ‘dressed to impress’.
We enjoyed great company and entertainment and, of course, the main event: celebrating the exemplars of our profession as the 17 winners took to the stage.
As our chair of judges Mark Griffiths noted on the night, after his dynamic first year in the role, the IWFM EDI project’s influence was evident throughout the evening, and the four winners recognised for their efforts in improving EDI underlined the importance of keeping the agenda front of mind. Small changes can make a big difference and I look forward to seeing what the EDI focus group and our head of policy Sofie Hooper have planned to drive change in our sector next year. Above all, I am grateful to all of our amazing entrants for sharing their successes for consideration. During such demanding times, it’s not easy to acknowledge our achievements when the next task is waiting. But recognition is important, particularly for a profession like ours, which hasn’t always received its due.
You are business enablers, value creators, change-makers, and vital frontline deliverers – and you should shout about it! In helping us spotlight your success, you’re also helping to ensure that business leaders understand our profession’s tremendous impact and extraordinary potential to support and deliver positive outcomes, as we all take our next steps into a challenging landscape.
Linda Hausmanis is CEO of the IWFM
