We always hear about the incredible people being nominated, being finalist and winning the esteemed awards such as Young Achiever, Regional Achievement and Community Awards. I never considered the business and massive effort behind these awards programs. These awards make such a huge impact on individuals and communities with having their efforts noticed, rewarded and celebrated in a prestigious and public way.
In this episode I speak with Annette Vawser – Annette is Co-Director of Awards Australia, a family owned business, with the sole purpose of finding “ordinary Australians doing extraordinary things in their communities’ and recognising them with their Awards programs which they run in every state and territory of Australia.
Having worked for over 20 years in the Events, Engineering and Finance industries, Annette brings a breadth of skill sets to Awards Australia. Her job role includes Finance, HR, software integration, social media marketing, content strategy and podcast production – a diverse role which keeps her very busy.
Established in 1989, Awards Australia has created Corporate Partnerships with a point of difference.
Specialising in awards recognition programs on a state and national level, our corporate partners and the community receive win/win opportunities and outcomes through established marketing and branding, media and event management expertise.
This year through COVID, she created an Alumni group from Winners and Finalists as far back as 2005 and has initiated and is the Producer on a Podcast sharing the Alumni’s story and highlighting their achievements and passions.
