It really was a night of a thousand stars at Consult Australia‘s AwardsforExcellence2024.

There are too many winners to congratulate but here are a few near and dear to my heart.


SMEC‘s Kate Drews and James Phillis for winning Large Firm of the Year
Tonkin‘s Gerry Doyle for winning Medium Firm of the Year
Rich Hayers of Jacobs for winning the Champions of Change Award
Michael Vinod for winning the Future Leader Award
Arup for winning the People First Award

And all of the other winners.

I’m so proud to be part of this industry. I began my journey with the engineering industry almost 15 years ago. Ironic because I would make a lousy engineer. But I’ve loved working with all of the firms I’ve worked with and learned at least as much from them as they have from me.

I truly look at the world through a different lens. Nothing built in this world would be possible without an engineer.

And a big shout out to MC and entertainer extraordinaire, Greg Ward. You nailed it again, my friend!
