  • Ensure your candidate for Partnership Team Member is available for inteview
  • Arrange a short tour of the facility to demonstrate operational aspects of the partnership
  • Ensure the judges know how to get to the site – provide location maps, collect them from the station/airport, etc, as appropriate.

The quality of your presentation to the judges at the interview stage is vital. It is an opportunity to demonstrate not only the facts and figures behind the claims in your entry, but also to show the enthusiasm and skill of the partners’ respective staff and management.

They may have a limited number of dates and should not be asked to rearrange visits at your convenience.

Finalists will receive a short resume of the judges’ opinion of their as soon as possible after the PFM Awards 2016 presentation dinner in November.
