  • Once nominations are accepted. CEO Q readers can vote and give reasons for their vote, thus providing valuable insights into what key factors drive the success of these nominees.

  • Nomination questions are presented in free-form and open-ended formats. The input is then statistically analyzed taking into consideration the listed achievements and the number of votes.
