Future Leaders Award
The purpose of this award is to provide incentive and recognition to young professionals who are both currently working in and wish to continue their career path within the Supply Chain, Logistics and Transport Industry. This is a wonderful opportunity to showcase young professionals within our great industry. This trophy was first awarded in 2009 and is dedicated to Vince Aisthorpe.
The winner of the 2015 Future Leaders Award will be awarded an enrolment into the Leadership Management Australia’s The Performance Edge 10-week development program valued at $5000. The program assists participants to improve their personal performance and productivity as well as that of their team. The prize includes consultation in the workplace, assistance in the development of some professional goals, all course material, attendance at 10 interactive workshops, facilitation and course coaching and access to LMA’s unique on-line feedback system.
The joint winners of the 2015 Future Leaders Award are Samantha Lowry, Senior Procurement Advisor, Department of Education & Training and Danielle Brennan, Category Specialist, Stanwell Corporation.
One of the most useful skills any leader can have is the ability to break down barriers. Danielle Brennan has a remarkable ability to break down barriers between teams and build rapport with people regardless of background, role or geographic location. A wonderful skill to have.
Dani’s continuous drive, passion and enthusiasm are admirable qualities and coupled with her knowledge of the ICT and professional services category space she is a fantastic asset to Stanwell’s Supply team. Dani is a self-starter and innovator consistently demonstrating her adaptability and go to attitude.
Samantha Lowry’s future in the Supply Chain industry is a bright one indeed. She is enrolled in Diploma of Government (Procurement and Contracting) and one of her current projects is the establishment of a Software-as-a-Service Community of Practice to connect key personnel in providing consistent advice and assistance to help schools to balance the benefits of new and accessible technologies with, the privacy and duty of care concerns of their students.
Samantha’s career aspirations include not only becoming a chief procurement officer, but also to serve as a board member on a charity, and perhaps even establish her own charitable organisation to address the health, housing, social and legal issues facing homelessness.
A High Commendation has been awarded to Nathan Barrett, National Health and Safety Manager, Young Guns Container Crew.
Congratulations to the winners and to the Supply Chain & Logistics Association of Australia for putting on a brilliant event.
