I am incredibly honoured to have been asked to be a judge for this year’s Consult Australia Awards for Excellence. My bit is now done (except for the Gala Dinner in March where the awards are given out, of course).

Can I just say, this job was HARD! I judged 3 categories and was extremely impressed by the quality of submissions and the phenomenal work that these firms are doing.

But I was also COMPLETELY blown away by the number and quality of submissions for the Future Leaders category. As one of the lecturers for the Future Leader Program I’ve seen the quality of participants go from strength to strength, which was reflected in the awards submissions as well.

The future is in great hands with these top notch leaders, programs and firms.

Thank you, Linda Gaunt and Jonathan Cartledge for our ongoing collaboration and to my co-judge Andrew Mather. Working with you is always a pleasure!
