YOUNG ACHIEVER AWARD
A key factor in the success of local businesses is the attraction, development and retention of young people. The Bob Gawne Young Achiever Award, named in honour of long serving Melbourne Business Award supporter and youth mentor Bob Gawne, aims to identify and promote young people who are making a significant contribution to the company where they are employed.

All award nominees are promoted on the Melbourne Business Awards website and via Melbourne Business Awards and partners communication channels.
