The Impact Awards

The Impact Awards are pleased to announce a partnership with South Australian Leaders

We share a common purpose and want to recognise the hard work of the best companies in the state and help them to make a difference.  We encourage South Australian Leaders members to consider the value of nominating your company or attending the impact awards event on the 1st of November 2018.

The Impact Awards celebrate proven global competitiveness and recognise companies that create high-value jobs and prosperity for South Australia.

Now in its 4th year, the Impact Awards delivers value to South Australia’s globally competitive companies (not start-ups), exposing their brand to an international audience, helping to build new relationships and providing new business insights to fast-track into global markets.

The Impact Awards is a not-for-profit, industry-led program that recognises, celebrates and assists established mid-sized South Australian companies who strive for global excellence.

Nominations close 20 July 2018 to nominate your own company or share

Benefits to the winners:

  • A new way to highlight your brand as a premium company for employees, suppliers and customers
  • Connect with South Australia’s proven globalisation business leaders
  • Access to the Impact Awards' Ambassador network providing mentoring, networking and strategy development, to help you accelerate business growth
  • A judging process that is rewarding, to help you think more about what makes your business successful and how to improve, with feedback provided by industry leaders

Nomination criteria:

  • Trading for minimum of 3 years
  • Demonstrated growth trajectory and solid plans/evidence that support future growth
  • Evidence of global competitiveness
  • Head office located in South Australia

If you are shortlisted, you will need to host a judging visit, and share key business information and financials.


We are industry led, which has generated tremendous goodwill from the business community. Our mission to globalise the economy resounds with the business owner who is a doer, a real go-getter.

World-class business leaders judge the nominations. A winner of the Impact Awards must stand out amongst the tough competition and exceed the expectations of judges who have run or are running global companies.

The Impact Awards provides you with exposure to South Australia’s high-calibre business community. We have, in just three years, gained a following consisting of the very best of South Australia’s business leaders.

Now in its 4th year, the Impact Awards recognises organisations who demonstrate global competitiveness and impact for the good of South Australia, their industry and business performance. Over our short history, more than 1,000 people have attended the event – CEOs, business owners, business leaders and our ambassadors.  We invite you to join us at the Impact Awards on Thursday, 1 November 2018 at the Adelaide Convention Centre.


The Impact Awards Foundation was established as a not-for-profit in 2015 by three South Australian commercial organisations: Mihell & Lycos, Advanced Focus and Adept Technology.
