NZ Excellence in IT Awards nominations open

18 May 16

Nominations for the New Zealand Excellence in IT Awards are open now, with the Sector Award and the Supreme Award created to recognise some of the brightest minds in IT, with a focus on the individuals behind the companies.

“We are deliberately asking for nominations rather than entries because we all know those people who do a tremendous job but who don’t like to blow their own trumpet. This is your chance, as IT professionals, to nominate someone for their hard work,” Paul Matthews, chief executive of the Institute of IT Professionals says.
