ANOTHER YEAR OF MAGNIFICENT CELEBRATION

Held on 18 October at the historic Sydney Town Hall, 12 high-achieving global Australians were celebrated at the 2018 Advance Awards. Their achievements are at the forefront of some of the most exciting, innovative industries and developments around the world. 

ANNOUNCING THE OVERALL WINNER..

Life Sciences category winner and CEO of Synchron, Dr Thomas Oxley, was announced as the Overall Winner. 

Dr Oxley is a vascular and interventional neurologist and world expert in endovascular bionics. His company's mission is to deliver safe neurotechnology that overcomes human limitations and enables growth. It is developing minimally-invasive technology for the safe and rapid implantation of miniaturised electronic medical devices with a broadband capability to help diagnose and treat a range of neurological disorders including speech deficit, paralysis, epilepsy, movement disorders and depression.

The 2018 Advance Awards are over, but the celebration of the marvelous global Australians continue.

STAY TUNED FOR THE LAUNCH OF THE 2019 NOMINATIONS 

We count on your support and participation to acknowledge more dynamic and outstanding international Australians who are shining bright in their fields around the world. If you know a global Australian who has made significant and exemplary contributions, nominate them for the 2019 Advance Awards.

THANK YOU..

We commend the Australian Government, our major partner, NAB and our Awards category partners, The Dow Chemical Company and OFX. We would also like to thank the table sponsors, donors, Advance Ambassadors and all guests who were there with us last night for their vision in supporting Advance and this important annual celebration.
