66 people attended the IELLEN’s AGM & Awards event on Thursday May 16 in the Banquet Hall, Malvern Town Hall.

It was our largest attended AGM. With feedback we have, we’d say it was also our most successful Awards event.

Following the AGM, IELLEN CEO Andrew Neophytou and IELLEN Chairperson Angela Stathopoulos announced a total 11 award winners, six of them to young people.

Sam Joukadjian, Managing Director of IMG Australia (our Awards sponsor) presented winners with certificates and gift vouchers. The combined value of vouchers was over $2,000.

IELLEN Award winners were:
Employer of the Year (Port Phillip) – Bayview Hotels
Employer of the Year (Stonnington) – Hello Music
Employer of the Year (Boroondara) – Mad Scientist Digital
Community Impact Award – Hester Hornbrook Academy (Prahran) – Young Mum’s VCAL Class / “Young Mum’s Unite”
