It seems like an eternity since we last said this but: Awards Season is finally upon us! We’re making the last preparations behind-the-scenes at APCTC HQ, and are happy to say nominations (the first stage) will be open to both our lovely members and the public on Tuesday the 25th of October. From there, there will be a month-long process culminating in a lavish Awards Ceremony on the 26th of November.
Full APCTC members will be able to nominate themselves for an award, while Community Members will be able to nominate others.
The 2015 Awards Winners
Here’s what a few of last years winners have had to say about winning an award, just a few months on from it:
David Key – APCTC Award Winner 2015
“I absolutely believe that achieving the award has made a difference. What I’ve been doing has obviously made a difference, because of the award, and the 30,000 clients that I’ve got around the world, doing my programmes. I’ve had accreditations and awards before, in different areas, but I’ve looked at our performance, and our revenues are up 50 percent since [the 2015 Awards]. What I mean by that is: We are having more people sign up to my seven-day programme, or my 13-day programme, than prior to that. There are a number of different things that have actually changed since [the 2015 Awards].”
Cathy Simmons – APCTC Award Winner 2015
“The award has meant that more and more therapists have been approaching me for help to create a successful business doing what they love, and I am loving this part of my work! In my work with addictions, my clients feel that they are in safe hands. It is quite a leap for them to put their trust in someone with something that is so personal and scary for them and the award gives them added confidence that I am the right person to help them.”
Martin Norbury – APCTC Winner 2015
“It’s had a massive effect and elevated us into a new chapter of growth. Being recognised as the Business Mentor of the Year by the APCTC has opened the doors to new circles and we have significantly increased our client base since the Awards ceremony.”
For 2016, we have decided to hold our annual conference and the Awards Ceremony on the same day, with the conference being held during the day and the awards dinner in the evening.
2016 APCTC Awards Categories
All successful finalists for the APCTC Awards 2016 will practice strict adherence to the APCTC Code of Ethics of competency, confidentiality, boundaries and professionalism.
Trainer of the Year
A trainer imparts knowledge, skill and experience in a bid to help their client reach their goals. This goal could be work-based, health or anything in between. An APCTC Trainer of the Year will demonstrates exceptional skill in this area, alongside acute acumen in their chosen field.
Coach of the Year
A coach provides gap analysis and serves their clients at the highest possible level in order to assist them in achieving their goals. An APCTC Coach of the Year will consistently show up in their best state, and assist their clients to do the same, whatever their goal.
Consultant of the Year
A consultant is hired to come into a business in order to fix a specific component within it. It requires a tremendous amount of expertise and know-how within that component, and the overarching industry it sits within. An APCTC Consultant of the Year will demonstrate all of this, alongside the ability to sustainably transform that component of the business in order to benefit the rest.
Speaker of the Year
A speaker, or an orator, carefully constructs and delivers presentations designed to inform, inspire, educate or entertain. Sometimes they will effortlessly achieve all of the above. An APCTC Speaker of the Year will do this in a remarkable and memorable way, moving others in such a way that their lives are forever changed.
In the field of coaching, training and consultation, it is often the newest stars which burn the brightest. An APCTC Best Newcomer will have set up their practice in the last 12 months, and will have already made a sizeable impact within their field.
Outstanding Achievement of 2016
Have you, or a coach/trainer/consultant you know, overcome incredible odds or achieved the unthinkable? When awarding the Outstanding Achievement of the Year Award, anything deemed outstanding is considered for honoration.
Women’s Mentor of the Year
A special award created to honour those who specifically mentor women, be that in their professional or personal lives. An APCTC Women’s Mentor of the Year will have made a significant and positive difference in the lives of women for a number of years, and will be making considerable efforts to progress women’s impact upon the world.
Outstanding Coaching Client
The only category that doesn’t require a nomination. 2016 will be the first year in which a coaching client of the APCTC, as selected by the Head of Coaching, is awarded based on the work they have accomplished and the goals they have achieved since becoming a client.
