Deepak was chosen as overall winner for this Award due to his demonstrable ability to apply learning gained on programme to resolve real work issues. As a Medical Consultant specialising in Pain Medicine, Deepak has pushed for technological innovation at the Trust. He has used analysis conducted to create a business case for the pain clinic to go digital, as part of the hospital’s wider recovery plan. Deepak has also shown extraordinary adaptability to the ever-changing landscape of medical care during the pandemic, which has required crisis management whilst maintaining a view of the bigger picture.
I am very grateful to CMI for recognising my work and what I have achieved over the last three years. More than ever, I think awards like these are very useful in order to keep motivation, improve morale, and understand that there is a way to recognise such work.Deepak Ravindran

The 2021 honourable mention...
Joanna made the shortlist due to her outstanding performance and effort on her apprenticeship. This is notwithstanding that English is her second language, and that she has had to balance work and family commitments with her studies. Joanna has proven herself to be a proactive and engaged student who has actively sought to apply learnings in the workplace and make changes to her own management style. She has directly applied the idea of high performing teams to her team structure. This has subsequently increased employee productivity and improved communication between team members.
For me, being shortlisted for this Award demonstrates that it is never too late to develop yourself and change your career path through Management and Leadership upskilling. It is therefore very special to have my hard work noticed in this way.Joanna Sanders
