The Resource Industry Network Awards see the region's resource sector gather to celebrate excellence in business and significant contributions that businesses have made to the regional economy and community. Each year, attendees are treated to special entertainers and keynote speakers that ensure a fantastic night is had by all.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER - BERNARD SALT

RIN has secured one of Australia’s leading business analysts and social commentators, Bernard Salt, as the keynote speaker for this wonderful night of celebration. Bernard is one of the most in-demand speakers on the Australian corporate speaking circuit and has been for more than a decade. He heads up The Demographic Group, which provides advice on demographic, consumer and social trends for business, and is widely regarded as the country’s leading social commentator by business, media and the broader community. He is a regular columnist for The Australian newspaper and is an adjunct professor at Curtin University Business School. Salt is perhaps best known to the wider community for his desire to identify and tag new tribes and social behaviours such as the “Seachange Shift”, the “Man Drought”, “PUMCINS” (pronounced “pumkins”) and the “Goats Cheese Curtain’. He was also responsible for popularising smashed avocados globally. 

ABOUT THE EVENT

Top performing METS companies from the region will once again be encouraged to do something good for their business and nominate for the upcoming awards. Nominations will remain open until September 25th and RIN is urging businesses to take the time to prepare their nominations for the diverse range of categories on offer.

The awards firmly place the region’s resource services sector in the spotlight, and with so many challenges facing businesses on a daily basis, the event is a positive way to celebrate the many accomplishments happening in the resources sector and a cost-effective way to gain exposure for your business.

The awards are FREE TO ENTER as many times as you like and nominees benefit enormously through recognition with buyers, stakeholders and government.

The RIN Awards provide an opportunity to step back from day-to day-business activity and make a valued assessment on the achievements of your organisation and staff, as well as recognise staff for the effort they have contributed to your organisation.
