This year’s award ceremony will be hosted at the iconic Adelaide Oval by Stephanie Brantz, one of Australia's most popular sports presenters and a self-confessed sports nut. Stephanie has worked for SBS, Nine and FOX. She currently works at ABC1 where she hosts the W-League and WNBL coverage, as well as taking on other hosting roles throughout the year.
Eve Craker, winner of the Emerging Leader of the Year Award last year notes, “winning this award was huge for me. It gave me a lot of confidence in this industry and was recognising all the hard work I had done as part of the team at Adelaide City Council”.
This event will showcase the amazing talents of individuals and teams across Australia as part of the wider Parks and Leisure National Conference taking place at the same time. The PLA National Conference (October 23-25) will feature amazing speakers from all over the world who are coming to share their experiences and pass on their knowledge.
Keynote speakers David Engwich, Holly Ransom, Mark McCrindle, and Kevin Lafferty will be presenting and making themselves available for lunch learning sessions. Michael Shull and Anthony Paul Diaz from the Los Angeles Parks Department will also be running workshops.
Tickets to both the Awards Night Gala and the Conference are still available. Head to www.parksleisure.com.au/conference or call (08) 8332 0130 for more information.
Parks and Leisure's Awards night is proudly supported by Greenlife Group and Toro Australia.
