Going for gold  

Sharing best practice is at the heart of the IABC NSW chapter so we’re thrilled to present a showcase of business communication excellence via our NSW Gold Quill winners.

Gold Quill is the most prestigious awards program in our industry and honours the dedication, innovation, excellence and passion of communicators on a global scale.

Our NSW award winners will present their winning entries and then join a Q&A panel about being at the cutting edge of communications and the winning process.

This is a unique opportunity to learn how your local peers and colleagues are leading the globe on strategic communication
