Judging at the UK Financial Services Experience 2017 is a great way to share your financial knowledge and experience. At the same time, you will have the opportunity to hear other financial service initiatives from all types of industries, enhance your own profile, network and celebrate with the Finalists and Winners!

As a judge your role is to:

  • Hear first-hand from professionals representing a range of organisations, from blue chip to start-up, as they share some of the latest business ideas and initiatives.
  • Use your knowledge and experience to assess entries both online and at face-to-face live presentations that give you the opportunity to learn, ask questions and clarify important issues.
  • Provide scores and written comments to entrants. Your scores and comments go on to make up part of their feedback reports, helping them continuously improve their business.

Being a judge enables you to:

  • Enhance your credibility
    Both from presence at the awards and from the inclusion of your role in your CV
  • Network
    With other business leaders and the Finalists and Winners
