Alright guys, we’ve got some big updates for you regarding B&T’s 30 Under 30 Awards.
Firstly, we hope you’re all healthy, safe and practicing social distancing (v important)!
Secondly, as most of you will be aware, B&T has made the decision to postpone the 30 Under 30 Awards to July 2020. We have made this decision based on the advice from public health officials within the Australian government.
Our priority is to ensure we hold a safe and successful event. We are working with our sponsors, attendees, the venue and the broader industry to secure a new date in July to celebrate the B&T 30 Under 30 Awards.
We continue to put the health, wellbeing and safety of our customers and employees first and we’re doing everything that a responsible business in our position can do to mitigate the risk posed by COVID-19.
Thirdly, it’s time for a People’s Choice update and boy has there been some decent movement since we last checked in.
Last update, Tim and Taegan were in the lead. Now? 40/40 Creative’s Addison Gazal has soared to the number one stop, while China Social Solution’s Max Weipeng Yang is now in second.
