Tell us about your award win and what it meant to you?

At last year’s HM Awards, I was honoured to have been awarded Communications Associate and Rising Star alongside the very talented Chris Waite and Chris Purdy.

The HM Awards are a chance to celebrate our thriving industry. I share my personal wins with the entire QT team.

It’s a pleasure and privilege to be surrounded by such wonderful humans who work so hard to make our brand, extraordinary.

Yes. The awards are a night where you have the opportunity to network, build comradery with the team and celebrate the industry.

Why should someone enter the award?

What a way to finish the year – celebrating your people and their extraordinary achievements and accolades.

Any tips for those thinking of entering?

Enjoy it! It’s a wonderful reason to take pause and look back on key milestone from the year.
