Being a Gold partner of the inaugural leadership awards was a real opener for us at CQUniversity. We were able to connect with many great inspiring & aspiring leaders through the course of the event, & that is something our university is also excited to be a part of. In particular, the level of support & exposure that the awards, particularly through Sonia McDonalds own personal leadership has given us access to new markets & a wider range of influencers who have opened our eyes to even greater opportunities for our university. Beyond contacts, support for marketing activities, we were thrilled by the very personal & constant social media support we received, which helped to promote our brand in markets relevant to our teaching programs. For us, the value proposition in supporting the Leadership awards has paid its return on our investment many times over & we look forward to participating with Sonia & the team coordinating the awards as they continue to grow. — Alastair Dawson, Senior Deputy Vice Chancellor & Vice President, CQUniversity Australia
