REB has outlined its submission and judging methodology for the 2017 REB Awards, as it prepares to recognise the industry’s top performers across 27 award categories.
Using a submission scoreboard and strict assessment requirements, REB will apply an integrated methodology that involves a five-stage process, covering the nomination and submission of candidates, through to judging and shortlisting finalists, before identifying and announcing the winners.
The judging itself is also a multi-step process. All submissions are delivered to a panel of respected industry professionals and business leaders for assessment. The panel members include Brett Spencer, CEO of Stargate; Josh Frith, managing director of The Dubs; Vicki Stylianou, executive general manager if the Institute of Public Accountants; Innes Kirkwood, sales director of banking & financial services at Macquarie Group and Tim Gavan, director and head of real estate advisory services NSW at KPMG Australia.
The judges score each submission across a range of criteria, each applicable to its category description.
One winner will be announced per award category, with the awards presented at the REB Awards gala.
