All four events were a giant boost to our confidence and served as a great way to close the “Higher Education” chapter of our lives.”
Con Michael, Balconi Smart Torch
Winner of the Most Impactful Social Benefit and Most Innovative Collaborative Technology Categories at the 26th WAITTA INCITE Awards 2017
2017 National iAwards Winner – Innovation of the Year Award & Community Service Markets
2017 National iAwards Merit Recipient – Mobility Innovator of the Year
“The hands on approach of the WAITTA team towards the INCITE Awards makes you really focus on what is required. When it comes to the national awards, the WAITTA team goes into overdrive. Their support is amazing. I took this refocused approach and applied it to the national iAwards and it made sense what they were saying. It must have worked. Because to receive one award and one merit was fantastic. But then win the Australian Government AIIA Award for the Innovation of the Year was amazing. It is the WAITTA INCITE Awards that gives you that gateway towards this experience.”
