The Annual Awards are divided into three categories and are open to nominations between 1 January and 1 September each year.

Individuals, publishers and researchers may nominate their own or others' work, although current Coaching Centre associates, employees and others linked to Henley are excluded. Nominations should include a published version of the book or article.

The Henley team will review nominations and make a selection based on what they considered to be outstanding work in each category. The Awards are then presented at our Annual Coaching Conference.
