For a chance to become Europe’s Audiologist of the Year, request your entry pack for the prestigious competition now by visiting: "audiologistoftheyear.eu".
Now in its twelfth year, Audiologist of the Year invites patients from across Europe to nominate their hearing practitioner for the award by describing the difference they have made to their lives. These heartfelt stories highlight the hard work of the country’s leading audiologists and why they deserve to be rewarded on an international stage.
The winning audiologist will join an exclusive circle of hearing care professionals who have won the award, including 11 European winners, 70 country winners and over 270 audiologists commended throughout Europe. The competition is open to both private and public sector audiologists, who could find themselves recognised by some of the most prominent organisations in the hearing industry on an international stage.
Benefits of getting involved
Winner of the 2018 European Audiologist of the Year award, Benjamin Schadow of Hörstil in Erfurt, Germany spoke of the impact the award has made on his practice: “The local and national media interest generated by us winning the title, along with the PR package we won has helped us to gain wider recognition in our area. This has contributed to an increase in new customers as more people are hearing about the practice.
Winning the Audiologist of the Year has made a big impact on the whole team at Hörstil GmbH & Co. KG. Being recognised for our work by our patients, our peers in the industry and the EHIMA was a huge honour.”
Encouraging your patients to vote needn’t feel forced or uncomfortable. The entry pack includes everything patients need to know about submitting an entry and contains an array of promotional materials audiologists can introduce to their waiting rooms or offices to help encourage entries (table talkers, business cards posters and entry forms). Your patients can also submit their entries online from the comfort of their own homes via "audiologistoftheyear.eu".
Other ideas to raise awareness with your patients are to add the competition link from your website, add the competition details to your newsletter; maybe your customer care team could even advise patients when they are booking an appointment.
The competition is now open and will close on 1st July, 2019. For more information, to request an entry pack, or to download the Audiologist of the Year materials, visit "audiologistoftheyear.eu".
