Here are our five quick steps showing how to get an OBE:
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 – we don’t work on business or export awards – we offer fully dedicated services.
What goes into an OBE Award?
Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE)
If activity has taken place over a long period of time at a local level, even if it has gained some national profile, the OBE is the most likely award to be given.
From the UK Government Website:
Honours recognise and celebrate outstanding achievements. There are always fewer Honours than people who deserve them and because they are rare, they should be reserved for people:
We are experienced nomination consultants and we understand how to create an honest, balanced and effective case which takes into account the factors which we know are important to the selection committee members and the Government. We will give you an honest assessment of the chances of success based on the facts that you tell us and then if you want to proceed, we will write the nomination with you.
In addition to the nomination itself, we can also help the supporters that you choose to write their letters.
When the current nomination process was introduced in the 1990s, the motivation was to allow members of the public to more easily nominate the everyday heroes and heroines we meet in our lives; that the Honours shouldn’t be reserved for the rich and elite.
We have used that philosophy in designing how we work at Bayleaf – sensible pricing for writing great nominations. We charge fees which are significantly lower than our competitors to allow more people to nominate their loved ones and respected colleagues.
Experienced, professional and accessible. My experience with Bayleaf Honours was quite enjoyable. I found the team there to be unpretentious, honest and transparent. My nomination was written in a compelling, comprehensive & timely manner. Their fees are fair and readily available. I had full access to all team members and felt my nomination was in the best hands.
At Bayleaf, we provide our clients with affordable expertise every day. There are other providers of nomination services who charge very differently to our simple pricing structure. We built our business with low overheads which means we can charge low prices. For example, our writers work remotely so we don’t pay for office space. Our process works exclusively online, so nobody has to pay travel expenses.
That means that we can commit to beating any other price for a similar service – by a lot! If you have received a genuine offer from any established competitor of ours, send the offer to us and we guarantee to beat the price by 50%! Not only that, but we have no word limits or limits on the number of supporters we contact for you.
We operate a high integrity business. We don’t make promises about our chances of success and we don’t claim to have influence or inside knowledge of the process. Therefore, we absolutely promise our clients an honest assessment of success, well-structured, compelling writing & in-depth research. Nothing more, nothing less.
Finally, our business is 100% focused on Queen’s Honours. We don’t allow ourselves to be distracted with business awards or other nominations. Securing these Honours for you is our relentless passion.
Bayleaf Honours is a commercial entity with no connection to the British Government, the Cabinet Office or the Honours Committees. No ability to influence the process in a client's favour through lobbying or access is claimed or implied.
