Journey to the finals

Journey to the finals

As soon as you’ve decided to enter, your exciting Awards journey will begin…


Step 1

Choose the relevant category and complete your entry form

Choose the relevant category or categories for your initiative, make your payment and receive that all-important entry form. Collect all the evidence and results you need to prove how your customer experience techniques have made a difference in your financial organisation. Remember, you will need to transform your entry into a presentation to the judging panel should you be shortlisted as a Finalist.

Step 2

Submit Your Entry

Once your official entry is complete, you will need to upload it to our website for shortlisting. The entry submission deadline is 5th May 2017.

Step 3

Wait To Hear If Your Entry Has Been Shortlisted

Once entries have closed, your submission will be assessed to see if it has what it takes to make it through to the Awards Finals. The shortlist of Finalists will be announced on 11th May 2017. The Finalists will be invited to present at the Awards Finals presentations on 13th July 2017.

Step 4

Prepare Yourself For The awards Finals

It’s now time to decide how to bring your entry to life at the Awards Finals and presentations in readiness for your live pitch to the judging panel.

Step 5

Book Your Place At The awards Finals

Bring as many of your team members along as you can! This is a great way to bring your entry to life and gives you a chance to say "thank you" for all their hard work!

Whilst you are booking your seats, your original entry submission will be judged online by the judging panel prior to the Awards Finals.

Step 6

Awards finals and presentations

Come along, present your initiative throughout the day, enjoy the Awards gala lunch, network with the cream of the crop in business and glean best practice from the leaders in your industry. It is then time to discover who the Winners of this year’s coveted UK Financial Services Experience Awards are.

Step 7

Receive your entry feeback report

Your journey doesn’t end here, however. Whether you’re a Finalist or a Winner, make sure you share your success both internally and externally.
