THE people who are often asked by their companies to save the day at short notice are to be honoured at an inaugural awards event.
The Wessex 100 Awards look to recognise interim managers – the people who are typically brought in to deliver important projects at short notice, take over when there is a gap in leadership or jump in to steer a company through a period of change or crisis.
Dermot Hill, organiser of the awards, says he decided to host the ceremony to shout about the high level of talent of interim managers across Hampshire, East Dorset, Wiltshire and the wider Wessex region.
He said: ‘Often the work of an interim manager is kept under the radar, which is why we don’t often get to hear the incredible success stories that are out there.’
Entries for The Wessex 100 Awards, which will be judged by an independent panel, close on March 29 and organisers are encouraging people to enter online at wessex100.org.
The winners of the national, regional and overall categories will be announced at a ceremony at Lainston House Hotel in Winchester on April 25.
