About Bayleaf Honours

About Bayleaf Honours

Here at Bayleaf Honours, we know how to tell the story of your colleague or loved one who you think deserves an Honour from the Queen. We are experienced writers who understand the process and can help you to put together a nomination with the greatest possible chance of success.

We are part of the Bayleaf Solutions group - our motto is Making Words Count. We recognise the value of excellence in writing and provide services to those whose words need to count; including our CV / Resume business, Bayleaf Jobs, and our business awards support group, Bayleaf Awards.

The team is led by Mike McKie who founded the business in 2018 to provide a high-quality and price-accessible alternative to the high-priced boutique alternatives already existing. The focus of the business is finding clients from groups who are under-represented in the honours system.

The UK has a long tradition of rewarding individuals for their bravery, contribution or service to the country through the system of honours awarded by the monarch – currently, the Queen’s Honours (sometimes also called the New Year's Honours and the Birthday Honours for the times of the year that the announcements are made). There are various orders awarded for a wide variety of reasons – from specific acts or deeds, to lifetime service recognition.

We also provide support and advice for those wanting to join the Upper Chamber of Parliament, the House of Lords, as working cross-bench peers. This process consists of an application, references and several interview stages.

How Does It Work?

Although awarded officially by the Queen, the recommendations are submitted by the Government who in turn, have in place an open nomination system whereby any individual can be nominated to be considered for a Queen’s Honour.

We don’t have secret access to the decision makers and we don’t promise success. In fact, we don’t publish our success statistics because the Nomination Committee don’t publish the overall application success rate – so we have nothing to compare ourselves to.

All we can promise you is professional writing and a deep and proven knowledge of the process, coupled with a genuine desire to get to know your story and to try to get recognition of the everyday heroes of the UK.

Shall we contact you to discuss a nomination?
