Rewarding excellence. Recognising the best. The Gold Quill Awards are the mark of global distinction and are the highest level of professional acknowledgement within business communication today.



Professional certifications give you the opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge and expertise, and provide evidence of your outstanding abilities. They engage you in a process of life-long learning that elevates your career and provides a structure for keeping your skills fresh and applicable.

These included AMP, ANZ Banking Group, the Australian National University, the Australian Taxation Office, CPA Australia, CSG International, Evolve Information Services, Headspace, ING Direct, NRMA, Pesel & Carr, the Regional Rail Link Authority, Suncorp Life, Telstra and the Victorian Department of Health.
