The toughest part of organizing an award is to choose the winners. The Golden Thistle Awards follows a stringent process that shortlists the individual based on criteria laid by the process advisor for awards, the PwC. The nominees are then evaluated and rated by the eminent jury members. The Golden Thistle jury consisted of individuals who are widely known and respected in their respective fields. The uncompromising spirit is what makes the Teacher’s Golden Thistle Awards, the most transparent and credible awards in India.
The esteemed jury includes Anil Kapoor (Actor), D. Shivakumar (Group Executive President, Aditya Birla Group), Farrokh Khambhata (Founder and CEO, Catering & Allied), Geeta Chandran (Dancer, Choreographer, Founder and President of NatyaVriksha), Harbhajan Singh (Indian Cricketer), Krishnamachari Srikkant (Former Captain, Indian Cricket Team), Manjit Singh Gill (Corporate Chef, ITC Hotels), Neeraj Kumar (Managing Director, India at Beam Suntory), Nimesh Shah (Managing Director, CEO, ICICI Prudential AMC) and Sabbas Joseph (Founder and Director, Wizcraft International Entertainment Pvt.
