Promoting the BA Profession

As 2023 winner Pip Hall said in her winner’s interview:

“The BA of the Year Award (BAOTY) is a wonderful platform, showing everyone in and outside the profession the breadth and depth of work business analysts do, the skillset. The application process makes you reflect on all that you do and your own achievements and professionalism; I’d highly recommend it. It is good for your self-confidence to reflect on, and acknowledge, what you are good at.”
