Nominations for this year’s Today’s Wills and Probate Industry Champion are now open!
Introduced in 2021 for the first time at The British Wills and Probate Awards, sponsored by Property Solutions Group, the Industry Champion recognised the individuals who went above and beyond to make the wills and probate sector a special place to work.
The category was kindly sponsored by arken.legal in 2021 and they have again pledged their support to this fantastic award in 2022.
Speaking about the importance of supporting this category Dave Newick, CEO at Arken.legal said:
“Arken is thrilled to be sponsoring the Industry Champion Award, celebrating those who have made an exceptional contribution to our industry. Every industry needs those individuals who are prepared to drive change, push the boundaries, and go the extra mile for the sector.”
“We are proud to be recognising these inspiring qualities which really resonate and align with all that Arken stands for. The industry champion award is voted for by you, the estate planning industry, and we look forward to meeting the finalist and announcing the winner on the night!”
Last year’s winner Michael Culver expressed his delight and thanked the Solicitors for the Elderly for their support in his nomination and success.
“I want to express a huge thank you to the staff, directors, regional directors and members of the SfE family. I am so thankful to be chairman of this organisation and to have the opportunity to work for change in our industry. I promise I won’t let up.”
The award will again be nominated and voted for by the industry. The nominations process enables anybody from across the industry to nominate an individual who they feel has championed the Wills and Probate sector over the past 12 months.
The Today’s Wills and Probate Industry Champion 2022 will have
- made an exceptional and inspiring contribution to the industry over the last 12 months
- produced something extraordinary that supports the industry
- continually put their clients’ interests at the forefront of what they do
- overcome challenges with minimal disruption to the outcome of their work
The only stipulations are that nominations must come from outside the organisation and you are unable to nominate yourself.
Nominations will close on Friday 2nd September at which point nominees will be whittled down to a shortlist which will go to a public vote for 2 weeks from Friday 9th September. The winner of this prestigious award will be announced live at The British Wills and Probate Awards 2022.
This year’s awards will be hosted in Birmingham at the suitably named “Grand Hotel” on 20th October. The event will be hybrid, with the in-person ceremony simultaneously live streamed via The British Wills and Probate Awards website.
Michael Edwards Business Director at Headline Sponsor Property Solutions Group said
“It’s wonderful to see the return of the successful Industry Champion Award, at this year’s British Wills and Probate Awards. An award nominated and voted for entirely by you, the wills and probate sector.”
“There are so many professionals that deserve to be recognised, but who in your eyes has gone above and beyond to champion this industry? We look forward to celebrating the achievements of unsung heroes later this year.”
