How practitioners can win a Client Choice Award
As a practitioner, your firm has to be in it, for you to win it.
Make sure your firm enters. As an individual practitioner, you can only be eligible through your firm’s entry.

Award categories for practitioners
For practitioners in Accounting and Consulting, Consulting Engineering and Built Environment, Law and IP Specialist firms in Australia and New Zealand there are separate categories of Award. These Awards are like no other awards. And one of these winners will achieve the status of Best Professional.
Your clients will nominate you and score you on quality and service. And your clients will give reasons for their scores too. And if you are a Winner you will learn what your clients said about you – although not which clients said what.
Sponsor for Best Professional

Through a network of professional practices and advisers Bombora Advice works directly with clients and in collaboration with other professional service firms to deliver superior client outcomes in the provision of life-risk advice, service and claims management.
There is no application process for practitioners, you are entered when your firm enters. As your clients are assessing your firm’s submission they will have opportunity to nominate the practitioners that interacted with them and assess their overall client service. This is why it is important to make sure that your firm is in it, for you to win it!
Please be aware that you must not contact your clients telling them to participate in this process or to nominate you. Doing so may disqualify you and your entire firm from the awards.
