Global Consulting Awards

October 4, 2017

 

On Friday 22nd September, 180 Degrees Consulting held our inaugural Global Consulting Awards Night at our Sydney Office. The event showcased and celebrated the top six projects from around the world that were selected as Regional finalists – Jugend Rettet e.V. (Technische Universitaet Berlin) and Migration Hub (University College London) from Europe/Middle East/Africa, East Bay SPCA (University of California, Berkeley) and The Sylvia Centre (NYU) from the Americas, and Burdekin Association (UNSW) and Humour Foundation (Mac Uni) from Asia-Pacific.

On the night, 180 consultants had the opportunity to network with some of the titans of the Australian consulting sector and leading non-profits and NGOs. An expert panel comprising of industry leaders from Nous, Accenture, AlphaBeta, Amnesty International and World Bank appraised each project to determine which was most likely to have lasting social impact.

The ultimate Global Consulting Award title was taken out by the The Burdekin Association (UNSW) project, led by Tom Du, Amith Kamath, Utkarsh Sunil, Xinyi Shen, Julie Wong and Phillip Ta. As we mentioned at the event, the quality and quantity of projects everyone competed with for these awards had vastly increased. Everyone in the running should feel incredibly proud of their efforts throughout the year, with a special congratulations to the Branch, Regional and Global Winners. You can view the winners here.

As promised, all award-winning teams will be given the opportunity to receive personalised feedback on their projects from our Global Consulting Team. If you are an award winner, please reach out to us at awards@180dc.org to organise a time to go through your project with us.
