13 September 2021.

Nominations for 2022 are open.

Recognising, rewarding and supporting your exceptional employee.

We want to hear from you. We want to recognise a talented individual in your business. Reward them for their hard work, and continue to keep them feeling proud and motivated in their job with you.

The process is simple; to give your colleague the chance to win a place on the Top 30 Under 30, all you need to do is explain to us why they deserve to win.

If they are successfully selected, your winner will be filmed at your business and you will be invited to join us at our illustrious awards celebration later in the year, where the 30 and their companies will be in attendance to celebrate and recognise the winners. The video produced showcasing your business and the winners success story will be shown on the night, in a room full of your colleagues and established businesses, and will be shared on our social media channels throughout the year.

But it doesn't end there. Your winner will attend our LEAP programme throughout the year alongside the 30 winners, providing them with a life changing training experience. The 10 sessions offered have been designed specifically to support and enlighten your talent to help them grow further, bringing an invaluable professional and personal growth opportunity to your employee, and giving you a more skilled individual back into your workplace.

Being part of the 30 is a 12 month process, giving you an employee that is recognised, valued and upskilled. If you have someone you wish to recognise, please nominate or if you want to find out more, please submit your interest.

Eye-opening, Engaging, unique

Motivating, Inspiring and Unique

“Before I attended, I thought it would be like all the other leadership courses I have been on, but it is definitely not! What this program does is it takes away all the jargon and technical theory and I can translate the learning into real scenarios in my personal and work life. John and Steve make it so simple and I love that about it.”

Danielle Thomas
Eye-opening, Engaging, Transferable

“The programme is so thought provoking, it has me looking at leadership, coaching, mentoring in a completely different way. Also, I'm surprised at how much I have learnt about myself whilst being on this program and in particular the parts of me that hold me back as a leader and how to address my own bad habits.”

Chloe Horton
Empowering, Insightful and Motivating

“It’s worth your time to take part in these sessions – you will learn much more about yourself as an individual, and how you are with others in and out of work. Each session has made me have a ‘lightbulb’ moment about myself and how I can apply different approaches personally and professionally.”

Emma Palmer
Insightful. Thoughtful. Relevant.

“I found it much more beneficial than expected. It made me think about areas of my work life that I hadn’t considered before. It's been really thought provoking. It challenges core skills that we often don’t give enough attention, benefiting us in the business world.”

Mike Hogan
Inspiring, Thought-provoking, Supportive

“I have found out more about myself since starting the programme than I had in the 5 years previous. The sessions give you the tools to reflect on who you actually are, it makes you think about what you actually think and feel rather than what you ”should” think and feel. They give you the power to be yourself through everything you do and when you are true to your values in sharing ideas and decision making you are so much more likely to succeed and help other people come along with you.”

Emily Gallagher
Interesting, Inspiring, Fantastic

“What surprised me most, was the different backgrounds of all the other winners For anyone who wins in the future, you have to attend. The biggest impact the programme has had on me is how I now understand how my core values motivate me, it's been really inspiring attending.”

Rich McAlpin
Really good value

“Being in the TOP 30 alongside like minded people who have been, are in, or will be in the same position as you is an invaluable experience. The TOP 30 is not what you expect, or will have ever done before, this is different – good different.”

Billie Mcloughlin
Enlightening, innovative, informal!

“It has opened my eyes to so much: the need to slow down, the need to listen more and the need to obliterate the word ‘err’ from my vocabulary are just a few of them. This has helped me substantially with clients and also presenting seminars and has taught me skills which I will use for the rest of my life!“

Josh Richardson
Valuable opportunity for growth.

“That every single session is so relevant. I have learnt so much from all of the sessions. Pushing out of my comfort zone is something I’ve always been encouraged to do and the programme has shown me that there are many skills you can learn to help you along the way."

Lindsay Cooke
Interesting, Insightful, Informative

“You won’t regret it and you’ll learn a lot about yourself,you’ll be put out of your comfort zone sometimes but it’s really worth it once you come away and reflect on the experiences. It’s made me think a lot about someingrained habits I didn’t even realise I had and helped me to make improvementsthat I can keep building on in the future."

Kim Urry
Fun, motivating, interesting

“My confidence has grown massively whilst been on the programme, I would advise to get stuck in and make the most of every session. I was very nervous about the programme, not only have I made friends but pushed myself out of my comfort zone and realised the can do attitude. "

Michael Bulmer
Self-developing, Beneficial, Directional

“The LEAP programme allowed me to have a clearer idea of the direction of my career and the approaches to take to stand the best chance of achieving my goals. The programme has changed the way I communicate with people in a professional environment. I have noticed a massive change in the way I deliver a message in a variety of situations and it has helped a lot."

Neil Russell

“It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity, it may seem daunting walking into a room of people that you don’t know but as the programme goes on you get to know people, and you realise everyone is in the same boat. Having a network of people in Hull is really valuable."
