Mike Jones (Regional Managing Director – Wales, Gallagher) was short listed for Leadership in the Private Sector in 2016

What did being shortlisted for or winning a Leading Wales Award mean to you?

Recognition is critical in all aspects of life.  Acknowledgement of what you are doing gives you a further determination to keep doing, and improving.

 He wrote:

“Being shortlisted for a Leading Wales Award, was a testament to the hard work and success of the business.  Being recognised as an inspirational leader gave credibility to the decisions which I had made in the business, and colleagues bought into future priorities I wanted engagement with.  The recognition to be nominated as a finalist for Leading Wales, has undoubtedly helped me personally.

The accreditation further motivated colleagues and divisions in my business, to evidence the great work they are doing, and seek external recognition and approval.  This had led to further business and apprenticeship awards for Gallagher.”
