Global coaching company Notion took home an impressive two wins and a high commendation across three categories at the virtual Learning Excellence Awards ceremony on Friday April 23, 2021 for its revolutionary 100% virtual management development programme, STAR® Manager.

Alan Dedicoat, best known as the “Voice of the Balls” on the National Lottery, hosted the event and announced Notion’s awards for STAR® Manager in the following categories:

WINNER – Learning Excellence Award in OUTSTANDING INNOVATION

Notion wins the award in the outstanding innovation category for STAR® Manager, their groundbreaking leadership and management development programme that supports managers at all levels, increasing productivity, performance and engagement by adopting Operational CoachingTM related management behaviours. 

“A Clear Win for Notion”

Describing STAR® Manager as a clear winner, Alan said: “It’s fun, interactive, virtual, it’s blended and it includes a series of workplace missions, short online training modules, critical guided reflection and live tutor support via learning stations and practitioner sessions.

WINNER – Learning Excellence Award in LEARNING PROCESS

Notion’s STAR® Manager went on to sweep up a second win in the learning process category.

“It’s delivering measurable results across many sectors: academic, retail and banking; generating significant benefits including dramatic improvements in productivity and team engagement with increased innovation, problem solving and retention. STAR® Manager can be run as a standalone programme or be integrated into in house management development programmes. Congratulations to Notion!” said Alan.


Continuing to blaze the awards ceremony and proving to be a powerful contender in the online learning space, Notion’s STAR® Manager was also successful in the outstanding initiative category being recognised with a high commendation by Learning Excellence.

Accepting the awards, MD and Founder of Notion and the co-creator of STAR® Manager, Dominic Ashley-Timms said: “I have first hand experience of just how meticulous the judging process is and so I take great pleasure in accepting these three awards on behalf of the team at Notion. I’m delighted to say that STAR® Manager is now in 15 countries around the globe and, crucially, it’s helping to enable individuals and organisations at a time when they need it most. Thank you Learning Excellence!”
