The BSCAA Excellence Awards in both NSW and Queensland were graciously sponsored by industry organisations that are proud to support and encourage the people who are the backbone of our great industry.
Here, we pay tribute to some of the major award winners and those companies that took the opportunity to give something back and, in the words of national president Terry Corby, recognise those hard working individuals for the work that they do in maintaining a professional image for the industry and for which they are rarely ever thanked.
AustralianSuper’s executive account manager, Jason Dreger, attended both ceremonies to present awards, while Sue Ryan represented AustralianSuper at the Queensland awards.
In NSW Lennox Institute’s CEO, Elaine Torrode, was proud to present the Innovation Through People Award as it embodies all that the organisation stands for. “We at Lennox believe in empowering people to make a difference,” she stated.
