Our Awards will recognize Radicals from all sectors of the industry who are leading their companies into the future with innovations in products, partnerships, systems, workplace culture, marketing, services and across all functions in the supply chain from creation to point of sale. You can nominate yourself or a colleague. Radical innovations must have been created/implemented in the past 18 months. Complete the nomination form here. Deadline for Awards entries is December 23, 2018. Then what happens? A Robin Report editorial team will screen all nominations and select 10 Finalists.
