Advance Year In Review

November: Australians in London, Propel USA and our collaborative NYC #BornGlobal Salon



As we are all slowly recovering from the post Advance Awards madness, it is great to see so many of the 2018 winners moving onwards and upwards!

Congratulations to our 2018 Sustainability Advance Award winner, Pete Ceglinski, for winning the 2018 Innovation Award at the GQ Men of the Year Awards in Australia.

Advance recently held a collaborative #BornGlobal Salon with 2017 Advance Life Sciences Award Winner, David A. Sinclair, Ph.D., A.O. who spoke about the latest developments of his research into anti-aging. Thank you to our event partners Australian Consulate-General New York, International Convention Centre Sydney and BESydney. Check out a wrap video of the event.

Advance is excited to announce that nominations for the 2019 Advance Awards and applications for the 2019 Propel program are now open!

Australia has deep historic, social and economic ties with Hong Kong – home to our largest Australian community in Asia. Congratulations to the Australian and Hong Kong governments on concluding negotiations on a Free Trade Agreement.
