2024 AVN Inspiring Accountants Awards

AVN members are constantly doing amazing things that are worthy of winning an award.

But from past experience we know that…

a) you don’t always recognise this yourself and …

b) you don’t want to look as if you’re bragging.

So this year, we’re asking the Practice Growth Experts to nominate candidates for the awards. Their perspective on what you’ve achieved is invaluable, reminding you of things you hadn’t considered or had even forgotten about.

Talk to your PGE about the awards and then work together to craft your winning entry.

Here’s how it works…

AVN Most Inspiring Accountants Awards 2024


The 2024 AVN Most Inspiring Accountants Awards cover seven categories, based around the AVN Roadmaps.

The winner in each category will be eligible to win the overall award, Most Inspiring Accountant of the Year 2024.

In addition, the AVN team will select the winner of the Rising Star Award, for the practice that has made significant progress in 2024.

See right for guidance on entering each category. The judges will be looking for the firm that can best answer these questions.
