A Year in Review

To our members, non-members and stakeholderslarge-Year-In-Review-0-22107

2016 was an exciting and productive year for us as we embarked on our own continuous improvement journey.  We began the year with a move to new premises, created a new corporate look, and developed a renewed vision to have closer and more valuable relationships with you all.

We grew our events programme by introducing outstanding key note speakers, developed collaborative industry networking opportunities and nurtured training partnerships with renowned experts including Matthew Syed.

In November we were honoured and delighted to welcome our Patron, HRH The Princess Royal to open our new offices.

We’re proud of our achievements in 2016 and we’d like to share some of the highlights with you.


2017 and beyond


  • We know we have much more to do to ensure we remain the premier organisation representing excellence and performance improvement in the UK


  • We have ambitious plans to provide even better services and value for all


  • We want to develop new products and resources, and continue to share, celebrate and promote business excellence across the UK.


  • Events will be even more insightful with increased focus on regional networking and training.


  • We look forward to welcoming new members to our growing network and sharing our vision with you.


2018 marks our 25 year Anniversary. To celebrate this milestone we are moving our annual UK Excellence Awards Ceremony to Spring 2018, it’s new home going forward. It will be bigger and better, more engaging and innovative.  New processes, new categories and new approaches to applying will bring more exciting opportunities to showcase a commitment to change, continuous improvement and employee development across any organisation.

Thank you for your continued support. We hope you can join us along the way!
