Texas Consilium Business Excellence Award

The Most Prestigious Award for Business Excellence in Texas

Our Texas Consilium tagline is simple – Improve Your Business.  The complexity comes in its application — for improvement is not a destination and it is never finished. Improvement is a continuous journey — a journey in the pursuit of excellence.

Overcoming “Normal” – The biggest obstacle we often encounter when we begin working with a company is the concept of “normal.” To the workers within the business, including many leaders, everything in their business appears “normal.” Their objective is to accomplish today much the same as they did yesterday, and plan to come back tomorrow and do it again. Routines are established. Routines make it easy, and change creates conflict. It’s human nature, therefore, that change and even the thought of change is avoided by many. But there can be no improvement without change.

Dreams & Vision – One of the first steps in any improvement program is to create a vision of the possibilities. Where could we be? What could we accomplish together? What are our dreams and passions? Where do we want to be?  A compelling vision will be exciting to some, and effective leaders will become cheerleaders for the rest of the team.  Everything in life is created twice — first through envisioning it, and then by its physical creation.

Inspiration for the Possible – The Texas Consilium Business Excellence Award was established to help Texans expand their vision of what is possible. Best practices often come from other businesses, in other industries, as a result of different perspectives. As we identify Texas businesses and leaders who are on a continuous improvement journey, we want to recognize their efforts — not only as an award for what they have accomplished, but to establish role models for lessons learned.  The pursuit of excellence begins within understanding the art of the possible.

Mark you calendar for May 11, 2020 in Frisco, TX. We will be building upon our 2019 inaugural Texas Consilium Business Excellence Award to Jerry Jones for his Lifetime Achievement, presented with the assistance of Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Brint Ryan, CEO of Ryan LLC. Our featured speaker will be Jim Lentz, CEO of Toyota Motor North America. We are searching the State of Texas to find the nominees who best exemplify excellence.

The evening will include VIP & General Receptions, Welcomes from selected VIPs, a Conversation with Jim Lentz, Stories of Excellence from our Nominees from around the State of Texas, Presentation of Awards, and Networking with Nominees and those who support them.

You are invited to participate at one of our many different levels from potential nominee of your own business or one you know, to community partner, sponsor, volunteer or attendee. All roles are important. See the sections below to find your calling.

NOMINATE

Nominating a Texas business you know would be a great opportunity to honor them, while possibly showcasing your own case study that helped them become more successful. Whether your organization provides financing, accounting, consulting, legal, human resources, marketing, technology, software, manufacturing, logistics or other services or products to Texas businesses, you likely have a customer, client or supplier that really stands out. Texas companies who believe they exemplify excellence are also welcome to self-nominate.

SPONSOR

Businesses that are growing and pursuing excellence represent one of the greatest opportunities for those connected to them. Texas Consilium, together with our extensive network of community partners and other stakeholders, are searching the state for those businesses and their leaders who exemplify excellence. Our messaging into the market, combined with the recognition of those who will be featured at our Awards Dinner, will be the perfect way to connect with the top leaders of these outstanding Texas businesses and others in our community who support them.

At the Texas Consilium Business Excellence Awards Dinner and through various Pre and Post-Event Opportunities, you will also have a chance to work with non-competing sponsors and other Texas Consilium stakeholders who can become referral partners, enhance your efforts, expand your network, and promote your success, particularly throughout your Texas markets. It’s not just about the event — it’s about the relationships we build together.
