ESE wins Association of the Year Award!
We are thrilled and proud to announce that the European Society of Endocrinology has won the Association of the Year award at the International & European Association Awards 2019, announced at the World Association Congress in Gothenburg last night.
This is fantastic recognition for ESE and the significant strategic developments that have led to all our successes over the last year.
ESE President AJ van der Lely said, “Close to four years ago we, as ESE’s Executive Committee, began a fascinating project to turn ESE into an ‘inside-out’ organisation. An inside-out organisation uses a corporate strategy process that relies on its core competencies to drive change, product development and innovation. To do this we needed a clear vision of who we were and are, and what our mission is. We also knew we had to construct a solid financially sustainable Society. The outcome is even more impressive than we could ever have hoped. ESE now stands for its vision to shape the future of endocrinology, to improve science, knowledge and health. The strong messages make it clear to everybody who we are and what we aim to achieve. The achievement in winning this fantastic award is testament to all the hard work of the entire team; I am proud to lead this great organisation!"
ESE Chief Executive Officer, Helen Gregson said, “ESE is delighted to have won this prestigious award. There have been significant changes and developments within the organisation recently, from a complete strategic review, rebrand, definition of its objectives, bringing in of a central team, establishing a solid financial base and launching a broad range of new and exciting activities. This has already started to show significant results and successes. As CEO I am so pleased that the trustees, the internal management team, our Association Management company, and indeed our members and European endocrinology can enjoy this recognition!”
Judges' comment: “Impressive statistics on the growth of the association and its deliverables. Continuous growth of membership and increase of attendance to events and online engagement with members."
