This year’s awards evening will be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre next Thursday – June 10 – and is a perfect opportunity to network with South Australia’s business leaders.
This is the fourth year of the 40 under 40 awards, an InDaily initiative to identify and celebrate South Australia’s top business people under the age of 40.
Beginning in 2018, the awards have grown into an anticipated event in South Australia, with more than 200 applicants vying for the 40 places each year.
The top 40 leaders are selected from a pool of completed nominations by a panel of nine judges from across a broad range of sectors.
Former nominees have represented a number of fields, including medicine, technology, finance and startups.
Individual winners are also recognised with awards sponsored by Piper Alderman, William Buck, Community Corporate, ANZ, Adelaide BioMed City, OTR, KWP! and Solstice Media.
This year’s keynote speaker will be Naracoorte Community News founder Michael Waite, a former manager of the finance and accounting departments of firms Bentall Kennedy and Cascade Investment.
Waite said celebrating the achievements, energy and innovation of South Australia’s top 40 business leaders under 40 was a chance to show off what Adelaide had to offer.
“Cities are all competing for companies to come and invest in their future and a list of powerful young leaders is a testament to those cities,” he said.
“Everyone wants to back a winner.”
The final 40 will also be published in a special edition of InDaily’s sister publication, CityMag, next Friday.
CityMag editor Johnny von Einem said the edition would not only feature all of this year’s winners, but it would also feature some of the businesses and institutions shaping the city’s next generation of young leaders.
“There’s impressive work being done in places like Northern Sound System, and these are the communities and organisations that I hope will lead people on a path into 40 Under 40 in future years,” he said.
