2019 Award Winners

On Wednesday 25 September, the Project Management Institute New Zealand recognised the winners of the 2019 Project Management Awards during the Awards Gala Dinner held during the Project Management Conference in Wellington. 

The New Zealand Project Management Awards, now in their 11th year, have grown in quality as PMINZ has pursued the recognition of outstanding project management achievements as a part of its vision for raising the profile of the project management profession. They are an annual celebration of project, programme and portfolio management in New Zealand - recognising and celebrating excellence and achievements in the profession.

Congratulations to both nominees and winners of these awards; the exceptional standard of both entrants and winners stands testament to the increasingly important role that project, programme and portfolio management plays in New Zealand. Their hard work, leadership and excellent project management skills were celebrated in style with the reveal of a brand new sustainable trophy designed by Bevan and Andrew of Frontal Lobe.  The event was hosted by International speaker and Award winner MC - Greg Ward.
