Leader of the Year Awards
Our annual Leader Awards recognise and celebrate inspiring Leaders from across the spectrum – from stand-out beginners to the highly experienced. Recipients are nominated and shortlisted by fellow Leaders and members of the British Exploring Society team with the final Awards being made by a judging panel, who look to honour spirit and well as skills.
Watson Emerging Leader of the Year Award in memory of Jean Sinclair is designed to recognise and reward emerging talent, or to identify new, additional or more senior leadership actions on the part of a Leader who may have worked with us for some time.
The Les Morgan Leader of the Year Award is to identify and celebrate consistent excellence in any area of Leadership, or to recognise an individual who has supported and helped develop their fellow Leaders, providing guidance and direction for them as well as for Explorers in preparation for and throughout their expedition experiences.
We will be presenting the two awards at the end of this season. The nominees for the 2019 Awards are available below and we will announce the overall winners at our Celebration Evening in 2020.
