Premier’s Awards Briefing Session at the Public Sector Excellence Conference – 5 April 2012

24 April 2012

Applications for the prestigious Premier's Awards opened on Monday 2 April and close Friday 27 April 2012.

Dr Kim Schofield, Public Sector Deputy Commissioner, together with Mr Neville Basset, Chairman of the Western Operations arm of the Royal Flying Doctor Service, hosted the briefing session at this year's Public Sector Excellence Conference, which launched the 2012 Premier's Awards program.

The Briefing Session was intended to give nominee's all the information needed to make their submissions as competitive as possible and showcase the excellent work occurring in the sector.

Dr Schofield acknowledged the innovation and creativity seen over the years with some agencies going on to receiving international awards. He encouraged those present at the conference to nominate their agencies highlighting size does not matter with a previous Award Winner having only with only 3 staff!

The biggest tip to nominees was 'evidence' is key. Mr Bassett said evidence should be used to support general and category specific comments - and can be what really makes your nomination stand out. Use a mix of evidence such as statistics, quotes, case studies etc to support your case should assert your nomination by adding weight to the project put forward.

Dr Schofield acknowledged all 2011 winners and finalists who presented their projects at the conference as offering valuable insight and perspective to consider when crafting agency nominations. He acknowledged the importance of collaboration in and across sectors as continuing to add value to the Western Australian community, and invited nominations to the 2012 Premier's Awards.
