Since 2013, Talent has been awarding the amazing individuals and businesses that are driving innovation and disruption across the technology community in the annual Talent Unleashed Awards.

Each year we are overwhelmed by the high calibre of entries we receive from across the globe, which are judged by our unrivalled panel of expert judges including Sir Richard Branson and Steve Wozniak.

At Talent we are passionate about recognising and supporting those exceptional people and organisations who are making the world a better place.  And while that doesn’t fit within the traditional narrative of a recruitment agency, that doesn’t bother us. 

Previous winners of the Talent Unleashed Awards have enjoyed trips to the Branson Centre for Entrepreneurship in South Africa as well as Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island to attend the Igniting Change workshop. Winners relish the exclusive opportunity to network with other bold and inspiring leaders and the chance to raise their own profiles internationally.

Entering the Talent Unleashed Awards is a unique opportunity to be recognised and applauded by your industry, your peers and some of the wold’s best who have championed the same cause before you. Through technology, we see the potential to further revolutionise business and drive innovation across all sectors around the world.

Your Chance to Shine


The technology sector is driven by many fantastic, yet unheralded individuals and organisations who are inventive, inspirational, and passionate about making a difference. Our intention and purpose is to champion these people across the globe. This is a call to action! A movement. We’re saying: stand up, be bold, be courageous, be transformative. This year, I am pleased to announce that Talent and our partners are looking to recognise winners for 5 different categories across 2 global regions.

We are honoured to have Sir Richard Branson as a headline judge for the fourth consecutive year, contributing his vast business acumen and entrepreneurial expertise. Silicon Valley icon and entrepreneur Steve Wozniak will be judging and presenting the awards live at an exclusive event in Sydney alongside a panel of inspiring entrepreneurial leaders from around the globe.

From there, a global winner for each category will be invited for a once in a lifetime chance to spend one-on-one time with Woz and will also receive a trip of a lifetime to Silicon Valley to attend a cutting edge technology conference and a bespoke tour of some of the region’s leading tech companies.

We were overwhelmed by the calibre of entries we received last year and we’re very excited about what the 2016 Talent Unleashed Awards can achieve. These awards are a way of rewarding people and businesses who make an outstanding contribution to business, the community and the environment so I ask you to stand out from the crowd and enter, or nominate someone you know who deserves to be recognised. We look forward to witnessing some of the best, brightest, and most inspiring ideas.

Thanks and best of luck!
