The 2020 Award Winner...

Denise Skinner
Denise Skinner CMgr CCMI

Chair, CMI East Midlands & Eastern Regional Board

Denise is an inspiring leader who lives by the CMI values and code of conduct, and through her authentic leadership style, instils this in others.

She has given her time and expertise to the benefit of CMI across a whole range of initiatives and activities, and in many cases has been an innovator delivering a real and positive impact. Through her work she is inspiring the leaders, Chartered Managers and Companions of the future. There could be no better ambassador for CMI, its brand and vision.

I’m honoured and delighted to receive this award. For me, volunteering with the CMI has been a great way to actively contribute to the business community and to the development of the future leaders of our organisations. I have thoroughly enjoyed being involved and would encourage others to consider volunteering.

Ann Francke

This is an opportunity to celebrate and thank our volunteers for all the work that they do which helps us to increase our activity and raise awareness of CMI in the community. I'd like to extend a very big personal thank you to CMI's volunteers from myself and my colleagues, but also from our members and partners - without you, CMI would not be the successful body it is.

Volunteering opportunities extend down from being President to a place on our Board of Trustees through to running a regional board. If you don't have time for such a big commitment why not get involved with mentoring, helping to organise an event, or even just posting out some social media messages for your Regional Board? Volunteers of all ages across various levels and sectors are key to ensure a rich mix of ideas and input.
