We founded the GAMECHANGERS (ACQ5) GLOBAL AWARDS program to empower end users to make smarter, more confident business decisions. One of the industry’s favourite awards events was right to anticipate another record-breaking number of votes! We gave the categories to over 261,000 of your industry peers. Voting (initially) closed at MIDDAY (GMT+1), Friday 22nd of January 2021. The total number of nominations received stood at an amazing 88,471 nominations. Due to the impact of the COVID19 Outbreak, it was decided to extend the voting period by a further month to allow for additional nominations which could reflect the skills, services and continued flexibility of the global professional community in unprecedented times. The result of this action was quite remarkable. An additional 24,241 votes were cast and some outstanding stories told. Guided by the poll’s results those firms and individuals that have had the greatest impact on the industry during the previous calendar year are duly honoured. In judging these awards, we have studied the nominations made by our voters and recognise that all of those nominated are leaders in their fields but the exceptional performances of some deserve recognition. **The poll was NOT ONLY designed to reflect actual performance in any particular area of expertise, it was also aimed to reflect direct market share based on a number of criteria and voters were encouraged to base their decisions on addressing professionalism: experience, value for money & responsiveness in order for ACQ5 to derive a numerical rating from 1 – 5. In that sense, this poll should be considered a reflection of how professionals view any practice, individual or related sector supplier in terms of overall quality of service. Only nominees receiving an average 4-star rating or above achieved a short-list status.“
