Going for gold: How the 2021 ACE Awards winners took the top prize

Online - March 30, 2022 at 3:30pm - 4:30pm


Highly regarded by both industry and clients, the ACE Awards celebrate the excellent work our members do to create remarkable outcomes for Aotearoa. Recognising excellence in professional services, the awards are a chance to share your mahi far and wide, celebrate your people and clients, and generate new business.

Our 2021 winners featured some innovative, sustainable and technically excellent projects – from one of the world's tallest buildings to a New Zealand-first approach to preventing injuries in the workplace. 

Join this online event to get the lowdown on the 2021 Gold Award winners’ entries – what they did, the challenges they faced, and how they delivered consulting excellence in the process. The Q&A will be hosted by Rebecca Jackson, longtime ACE Awards judge and convenor for the 2022 ACE Awards judging panel.

It's a great opportunity to hear more about the winning projects and gain insider knowledge and tips for creating a successful submission for this year’s ACE Awards
