Awards Ceremony (Live Stream)

    Celebrating excellence in workplace mental health.
    Event overview.

    Because of the current Red COVID-19 Protection Framework level, we’ve decided to move to an online format for the awards ceremony. The gala dinner can’t go ahead, and we’ve published information for ticket-holders here.

    We’re excited to be delivering the event in an online format – and we’re adding some special touches you’re sure to enjoy, including keynote speakers, original Kiwi music and a $1,000 Mitre 10 gift card giveaway. Full event details are further down the page and we’ll update this page when further details are confirmed.

    We look forward to welcoming you to the live stream and celebrating with you soon.
