Meet the Judges

Entries into the Gulf Sustainability and CSR Awards 2018 will be scored by Category Judging Panels comprising 3 to 5 of the Judges whose profiles are shown below. The Judges on each panel are selected to ensure a high level of business expertise. We take care to ensure there are no conflicts of interest and all Judges sign a confidentiality agreement.

Past entrants in our other Awards programmes have found it beneficial to take part in judging to help with entry structure and content in future years. Of course you cannot judge in any category you or your company are entering but there are plenty of categories to get involved in to ensure that this doesn’t happen.

If you are interested in applying as a Judge at the Awards why not visit our “Apply to Judge” page to find out more and to see whether you would benefit from joining the Judges below.
