Compelling Honours Nominations Crafted, Researched & Written With Passion & Care

"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 To Get An OBE?

    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. As an expat or someone living outside the UK, this is a key opportunity to craft a meaningful and compelling nomination reflecting your work.

    In addition, you can read more about the current priority areas of the Prime Minister & the Honours System and how they have changed over time.

    How Can Bayleaf Honours Help?

    We are experienced consultants. (We also have a global team who can support with recognition in, amongst others Australia, New Zealand and Canada). The team understand how to create an honest and effective case. This takes into account the factors which are important to the selection committee. After we listen to you, we will give you an honest assessment of the chances of success based on the facts that you tell us. Then if you want to proceed, we will write the application with you.

    Finally, in addition to the nomination itself, we can also help the supporters that you choose to write their letters.

    How We Work

    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.

    It’s a common question – “Why should we use a company like yours when the service is free? And is it ethical to pay for help?” You can read our answers at our blog post.

    And that’s it – our twelve stages which help us build a great nomination for you to win an MBE or other Honour. It’s all targeted to create something compelling, memorable that hits the Government’s priorities.

    At Bayleaf, we provide our clients with affordable expertise every day. Of course, there are other providers of nomination services who charge very differently to our simple pricing structure. We built our business with low overheads so we can charge low prices to our clients. For example, our writers work remotely so we don’t pay for office space.

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. So we don’t make promises about our chances of success and we don’t claim to have influence or inside knowledge of the process. Our clients receive an honest assessment of success, compelling writing & in-depth research. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Finally, our business is 100% focused – we don’t allow ourselves to be distracted with business awards or other nominations. Securing recognition for you is our relentless passion.
