Search Scotland MD Simone Lockhart is a recipient of the CCA's ‘Women of Influence’ Award
Search Consultancy's Managing Director for Scotland, Simone Lockhart, will be presented with a Women in Leadership Award at a ceremony in Glasgow in November.
In recognition of achievements, impact and influence on the development of the customer service profession, the Customer Contact Association (CCA) will recognise a total of six women from across the CCA network who have consistently promoted excellence in customer service throughout their careers.
The presentation of these Awards will coincide with the launch of the Women in Leadership Programme hosted by Daisy McAndrew to be delivered on 24 November 2015 at CCA’s 21st Anniversary Convention.
Amongst the topics for discussion will be how businesses must value the skills and attributes of both genders and move away from certain traits being the sole domain of either men or women.
The following women will be presented with their Award at the CCA Gala Dinner and Excellence Awards Ceremony on 25 November 2015:
- Alison Wilson, Head of Investor Development, Highlands & Islands Enterprise
- Simone Lockhart, Managing Director, Search Consultancy Limited
- Mary Graham, CEO, Stellar UK
- Ruth Birkin, Head of Global Contact Centres, Etihad Airways
- Alison Hilton, PT Operations Deputy Director, HMRC
- Helen Murray, Chief Customer Solutions Officer, Webhelp UK
Anne Marie Forsyth, CEO at CCA commented, “We are delighted to have the opportunity to recognise the achievements of such an impressive group of business women. Each woman is highly respected within their own organisations and business areas. To be able to formally recognise and congratulate them on their success so far is a real honour.
“These awards mark the end of a programme of work that has been taking place over the past 12-18 months and which we are committed to evolving throughout 2016. We look forward to working with our six Award Winners to ensure we respond appropriately to the Women in Leadership agenda as it progresses.”
