The prestigious Australian Leadership Excellence Awards (ALEAs) celebrate inspirational, passionate and talented leaders from across the nation. The awards put a spotlight on the individual contributions and achievements of these leaders whilst also encouraging nominees to reflect on their careers and personal development over the past twelve months.

“The Australian Leadership Excellence Awards (ALEAs) acknowledge and distinguish management and leadership excellence across Australia and represent an exceptional opportunity to recognise those who are making a positive difference,” said AIM WA CEO Professor Gary Martin.  “I congratulate all of the WA finalists and winners. Our four outstanding and inspirational winners will now compete in the National Australian Leadership Excellence Awards finals which will be announced at a gala dinner in Sydney on October 5."
