“Winning the Leadership HQ award for CEO: Medium Sized Organisation for 2022 was a fantastic morale boost and I was almost (but not quite) as thrilled as my mum and my business mentors. It also meant so much to me to see how genuinely excited my wider team in Scout Talent Group globally, were. And, I know we all say this but it’s actually true that even the act of writing the award submission was a highly valuable exercise. It can feel like a bit of a daunting task, but honestly it’s great to be prompted to sit down and take the time to put your achievements into thought and words. Becoming a finalist was amazing and of course we then booked a table for ten and proceeded to look forward to a glam night out in excellent company with an inspirational speaker, but to actually win the award was a really surprising and proud moment. Scout Talent Group is well established and I’ve been an employee for 15 years now, and CEO for 3, and it’s so great to know that we are not only rock solid and high growth, but also still dynamic and noteworthy. Thank you so very much, Leadership HQ, for making us feel recognised and very proud.”  – Andrea Davey, 2022 CEO/MD of the Year Medium Corporation
