Liverpool Super Achievers Awards

AS the increasingly popular Super Achievers awards open for nominations this week to showcase the success of those in Liverpool who strive to achieve, having a positive impact on their colleagues, families and the local economy, this year Pitman Training has announced the addition of 2 new categories to also recognise working dads and inspiring employers from across the region.

With a recent survey from Pitman Training on British Modesty highlighting that local workers rated above average on not wanting to brag about their achievements, and only 37% of local re-spondents admitted to having left an achievement out of their CV, Super Achievers judge Lucy Brazier encourages Liverpool workers not to shy away from success:- "This is a great accolade to add to your CV. I'd urge people to nominate themselves, as well as others and rid the Brit-ishness of modesty to instead celebrate success."

Supported by award winning Dad blogger John Adams of DadBlog UK, who regularly appears quoted in national media discussing the role of dads in modern life, and works with brands such as IKEA and Audi, the addition of Working Dad of the Year sees Pitman recognise that dads also have challenges balancing careers and home life, with many playing an increasing role in child care support.

The addition of Employer of the Year comes after many previous SuperAchiever winners credited the company culture and support of their bosses for what they had achieved, so this year Pitman hopes employees will also nominate their employers who inspire them, so they can showcase those who are shining examples of supportive environments enabling staff to grow.

Dominic Charters, Manager of Pitman Training Liverpool said:- "We see so many examples of our students working tirelessly, often juggling family life to achieve their professional goals, to contribute to the local economy. Many overcome high levels of adversity and often lives are transformed; we are constantly inspired by them. These awards are our chance to widen the recognition beyond our students, and celebrate anyone in Liverpool who has committed to achieving professional goals, whilst also celebrating employers that make success possible".

This years' judging panel is made up of:- Claire Barratt, entrepreneur, author, mother of 5 & founder of caricature brand ClaireaBella, a celebrity favourite brand which she created from her kitchen table whilst juggling her day job of being a special constable and detention officer; Lucy Brazier, International Speaker and Director of Marcham Publishing, a training and development magazine for Executive Assistants; John Adams, Author of:- 'Dad blog UK'; Diane Rose, Director of CPD Assessment and Membership at The Professional Development Consortium, and last year's reining:- 'PA of the Year' Jennifer Corcoran, who's since set up a new business after winning her award.

The team is on the hunt for the following from Liverpool:-

►   Working Mum of the Year
►   Working Dad of the Year
►   Inspirational Achiever of the Year
►   PA of the Year
►   Boss of the Year
►   Entrepreneur of the Year
►   Student of the Year (Nominated solely by Pitman Training Centres)

Nominations are now open and entries can be submitted for free online. Once entries have been submitted a shortlist is created, then the Liverpool public have the opportunity to vote, alongside the judging panel on who they feel should be the winners.

All winners will receive a prestigious Super Achievers Award; a cash prize of ₤500 to help them on their way to achieving their goals and a distance learning training course (courtesy of Pitman Training Group) and additional prizes include Jennifer offering a 1hr personal impact review:- 'Brand YOU,' which will review the LinkedIn profile and personal branding of PA of the Year winner and 121 Mentor call for Working Mum of the Year from Claire Barratt along with her creating a ClaireaBella character for them.

Centre Manager at the Liverpool Pitman Training, Dominic Charters said:- "We're really excited to have the opportunity to fly the flag for Liverpool, highlighting just how much our region aspires to achieve career success. It's a great opportunity to really showcase what can be done through hard work and perseverance. This time of year people are traditionally a bit restless in their jobs, and we want to help inspire people to see that they can change their futures by boosting their skills and really focusing on their goals."

Judge Lucy Brazier said:- "I'm excited to be back judging the Super Achievers for the second time, it's incredible to see just how much the awards have impacted those nominated, short listed and of course the winners over the last few years. Pitman Training has really put vocational development on the map, and it really is so key to recognize that in colleagues, friends and family, who are striving to achieve their career goals. This is a great accolade to add to your CV. I'd urge people to nominate themselves, as well as others and rid the Britishness of modesty to instead celebrate success."

Pitman Training Liverpool offers flexible, tailor made courses and qualifications with 1 on 1 student support in subjects including Office, IT, Administration, Finance and Business, which are recognised by employers. The teams also offer free career clinics and CVs advice. For more in-formation see:- Just in case you do not know, Pitman's are the UK's leading independent training provider.
