Your MBE Nomination. No Stone Unturned.

"I wish had approached Bayleaf four years ago when I first thought of engaging help for a Queen’s Honour. The level of detail knowing what is required, as well as the ability to coax the relevant information to support a successful application, I can say with experience, is second-to-none. Bayleaf’s approach that every individual is different – and so every approach has to be tailored – is both unique and also comforting that you’re giving yourself the best chance of recognition in the process."

    How Do You Get an MBE?

    You have a colleague or loved one who you think deserves an honour from the Queen and a trip to Buckingham Palace but don’t know how to go about it?

    Here are our five quick steps showing how to get an MBE:

    1. Build a portfolio of community-based or outstanding contributions over a long period of time.
    2. Create a network of people around you who can support and guide you.
    3. When the time is right, layout in bullet point form your main achievements. Not just the work, but also the results.
    4. Write your achievements in a way that is as compelling and clear as possible for the nomination form.
    5. Gather supporters’ letters to add depth and credibility to your nomination.

    Don’t have the time or writing skills for that? No problem.

    That’s why Bayleaf Honours exists.

    We are 100% focused on Queen’s Honours and we don’t work on business or export awards. Our services are fully dedicated to THIS.

    Potential clients are often uncertain about our process and the order in which we do things. Well, it’s no secret – here are the steps

    Do you know your CBEs from your OBEs? 

    There are several different awards, but there is no such thing as an MBE nomination form. We don’t get to choose which we apply for – it’s one application process for all honours. But it’s useful to understand the difference.

    Below, our guide briefly explains the different awards in the British Honours System and the various ranks.

    Remember, it is the committee that decides what somebody should be awarded. For a full overview and information on nominating, please see our comprehensive process page.

    Who Is Eligible For An MBE And What Is The Process?

    From the UK Government Website:

    Of course, there are always fewer Honours than people who deserve them. Because they are rare, they should be reserved for people:

    • Firstly, who have changed things especially by solid, practical achievement or outstanding service;
    • Or, whose work has brought distinction to British life or enhanced the UK’s reputation

    What goes into an MBE award? And what does it stand for?

    The MBE is awarded to individuals who have provided long-term, significant service to the community, or who have been responsible for significant community impact. Recipients will be those who stand out as a positive example to others.

    How We Work To Help Your MBE Nomination

    When the current nomination process was introduced in the 1990s, the reason was to allow members of the public to easily nominate the everyday heroes and heroines we meet in our lives. The Honours shouldn’t be reserved for the rich and elite.

    So that’s how we work at Bayleaf – sensible pricing for writing great nominations. We charge fees that are significantly lower than our competitors to allow more people to nominate their loved ones and respected colleagues.
