The value of Chartered Managers

Chartered Managers make an essential economic contribution to the UK economy and businesses. In uncertain times, never has it been more important to ensure that all UK managers are professionally qualified to the highest level.

Becoming a Chartered Manager was a personal aspiration as my previous highest qualifications were trade based. The new approaches to management I learnt through achieving Chartered status and then brought to my day to day role were reflected in increased remuneration from my company. Getting Chartered has been one of my career highlights.

Manisha Mistry, CMgr MCMI - Winner 2020

Manisha was chosen as this year’s winner as her story is an inspiring example to so many other managers and leaders. Beyond the exceptional results and impact delivered, Manisha's challenge took her out of her comfort zone, and while she suffered a little initially from imposter syndrome, her self confidence and awareness grew hugely through her experience of developing digital culture at Rolls-Royce - two of the most important facets of any successful manager.

To win this prestigious award has left me speechless! For my achievements to be recognised by the Chartered Management Institute via this award re-confirms the effort was absolutely worth it and the outcomes are a testament to the power of enabling others.

Manisha Mistry, CMgr MCMI - Head of Digital Culture, Rolls-Royce

Matthew Carr CMgr FCMI - Winner 2019

Build, staff, equip and open a new school from scratch in Shanghai, in the space of just 10 months, knowing absolutely nothing about schools. Impossible? Not for Chartered Manager of the Year 2019. Matthew is just one of the thousands of Chartered Managers using it to harness their full potential, for their employers and themselves. With 83% becoming better managers for it, and 73% going on to exceed their targets as a result, who knows?

I’ve never been worried about trying new things. Being a Chartered Manager gives you the toolkit to take on a challenge.
