2017 AIM Leadership Excellence Awards Nominations Open


The Australian Institute of Management has launched the 28th year of its highly regarded AIM Leadership Excellence Awards (ALEAs). Nominations and applications for 2017 are now open until 17:00 on 21st July to recognise the extraordinary work of leaders across the nation.

Last year, AIM reported a 46% increase in nominations ahead of 2015, with over 1,000 exceptional leaders nominated for an award nationwide. The 2017 ALEAS are expected to be the biggest and most competitive yet, as outstanding Australian leaders are provided an opportunity to highlight their contribution to a community or workplace.

The prestigious awards acknowledge leaders across the following categories:

·        Leader / Manager

·        Owner / Entrepreneur

·        Emerging Leader

·        Not for Profit

·        Student

·        Community Leader

AIM’s Chief Executive, David Pich was thrilled that the awards provided a platform to celebrate not only management and leadership excellence, but a genuine contribution to local communities and the nation as a whole.

“The ALEAs provide the recognition for hard work that leaders across the nation have contributed. AIM is committed to helping professionals develop into becoming great leaders, and the ALEAs give us an opportunity to highlight those efforts,” Pich said.

2016 Emerging Leader of the Year, Sports Consultant Paul Mead, highlighted the positive impact of the award on his career progression and business.

“The process from nomination through to the National Final was an amazing experience. It provided me time to reflect on what I had achieved in my business and leadership journey, from my own strengths and weaknesses to highlighting my business’ unique value proposition,” Mead said.

“The award confirmed what my value as a leader is, why I do what I do, how I do it and what I achieve. It has provided further credibility to my personal brand as a leader in my industry and given me an extended network to enable further success,” he continued.

Nominations are now open to recognise a friend or colleague, who has gone above and beyond in their leadership, in a bid for the rest of the country to get behind them too.
