2022 Nudge Sundowner and Training Awards

The annual Nudge Sundowner and Training Awards is an opportunity for young people and employers to come together to recognise the contribution that young people make to the WA business community.

This year the Nudge Sundowner and Training Awards, proudly supported by DevelopmentWA was held at Nowhereman Brewing Company on 16th November with over 100 people in attendance from 46 businesses, it was an evening to be remembered.

A highlight of the event for many is the opportunity to network, meet new and old faces along the way, whilst learning about the achievements of the young people and Nudge’s impact in the community.

This year the event was opened by Uncle Greg Ugle, providing a welcome to country that shared his personal leadership journey, providing a welcome reminder of how far we have come and how by continuing to work together to empower our young people, with access to training and employment opportunities, that we will continue to make a difference.  Setting the scene for the highlight of the evening, the presentation of the 2022 Nudge Training awards.
