The Advance Global Australian Summit and Awards celebrate international Australians who exhibit remarkable talent, exceptional vision and ambition. The Awards are the only of their kind to recognise the contributions of the one million Australians living abroad, and those who have returned home.
The Advance Global Australian Awards acknowledge achievements across a number of categories and on the night of the Awards a winner of the overall Advance Global Australian Award is announced. The Advance Global Alumni Award celebrates an outstanding non-Australian alumnus of an Australian university. Distinguished Australian pioneers, who themselves have made significant impact on the global stage, select the winners.
The Advance Global Australian Summit brings together Australia’s game-changers and thought leaders to exchange ideas, and share insights and best practices. The Summit theme this year is Australia in the Age of Disruption and presents a unique opportunity to network with peers and gather intelligence into global trends and solutions that will influence Australia’s growth and its place in the world.
