MAX Awards

Outstanding performance

Each year, MAX celebrates and recognises employees’ efforts, commitment and passion through its internal MAX Awards.

Each month, staff are invited to nominate a colleague who demonstrates exceptional performance, attitude or behaviours above the norm.

The monthly finalists came together in Brisbane on October 25, 2019 for a one-day conference followed by an evening awards ceremony.

Speakers included:

Managing Director Deborah Homewood, Chief Operating Officer Darren Hooper and Advisory Board member Sean Gordon.
