Our Awards

SCC&D and our CEO, Simon Smith are CEO Magazine 2021 ‘Professional Services Executive of the Year Finalists’ (only 4 finalists were chosen by CEO Magazine from across Australia and New Zealand).

A measure of the quality of our Executive Coaching services is that our CEO was also awarded as ‘Coach of the Year’ by the International Coach Federation Australia (ICFA). The ICFA is undisputedly the premier coaching organisation in Australia and internationally, with the highest number of member coaches.

Simon was also Owner/Manager of the Year State Finalists (NSW & ACT) in the Australian Institute of Management Excellence Awards (2015 and 2014).

Our multiple awards for Excellence in Business Ethics (2016, 2015, 2014 & 2013) mean you can trust that we will always do the right thing by our clients and our team (note: we didn’t stop being ethical in 2016, the NSW Business Chamber just ceased the award category!).
