I was thoroughly humbled last night to be awarded the New South Wales ICT Professional of the Year for 2013 by the Australian Information Industry Association. While the award itself is a great honour, I was so impressed by many of the other award winners and was excited to see all the great projects happening here in this great state of ours. There’s a lot more innovation and talent here than we sometimes give ourselves credit for I think. So I just though I’d list out (below) those other winners as I think they deserve a great deal of praise…
Thanks again to the AIIA for this great privilege, I’m most grateful.
