The Geoffrey Shindler Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Profession

The Geoffrey Shindler Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Profession applies to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the private client profession in the course of the last year (1 May 2020–23 April 2021). An example of why someone may win this Award would be the high level of input they have had in technical or policy consultations that have led to a significant legislative development, or in the development of a new offering or initiative that serves to further the profession.

Candidates cannot enter themselves; the award is by nomination only. Both STEP members and non-members may be nominated and entrants should provide a submission of up to 1,100 words. This award is judged on the quality of the entries, and not the number of nominations received per nominee.
