For Definition, 2023 is the year of adventure. Taking bold steps into the unknown, not knowing where they might lead. In that adventurous spirit, we are challenging all our people to lead the company on adventures into brand new territory. To encourage this, Definition employees and contractors can nominate their most adventurous colleagues for the Choose Your Own Adventure Award. And the winner gets to choose an adventure worth £5,000.
The winner could end up being someone who designs a completely new product or service, wows a client with an unexpected strategy, boosts the Group to new heights of sustainability or wellbeing, explores the data lake to find efficiencies or better ways to make decisions – or comes up with something we could never predict, that makes the rest of the Group ask “why did we never think of that?”
We want you to be asking:
Is there a better way to do this?
What would happen if we tried that?
How could this be improved?
How far can I push this?
We are looking for creative thinking that has a real business impact. Nominations have to specify the project, initiative or experiment the person is being nominated for – a general adventurous attitude is not enough!
You can nominate someone using the form below.

The Choose Your Own Adventure award is open to Definition employees and contractors.
The award is designed to encourage bold and creative thinking that results in business change.
Nominations are open to anyone who thinks differently beyond their job description.
If you understand the spirit in which the award was designed, you will probably be able to answer most of your own questions about the award.

The winner will get £5,000 to spend on an experience of their choice.
