About Unleashed

What are the Talent Unleashed Awards?

From passionate technology leaders to game changing startups and inspiring entrepreneurs, the Talent Unleashed Awards recognise and reward bold ideas and great leaders who are unleashing technology in the workplace and the community.

Our five award categories will celebrate those in the global technology community who are revolutionising business and driving innovation with their amazing ideas across the EMEA, USA, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

The Talent Unleashed Awards offer a unique opportunity to applaud the brave, celebrate the bold and recognise the brilliant amongst the technology community. We are looking for the next great idea, which will have the power to truly change lives in the future.

If you are a disruptive entrepreneur, an innovative startup or a bold and inspiring leader, we would love to hear from you.

Talent Unleashed Awards

What it’s all about and why you should enter.



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

Over the last five years we’ve been overwhelmed by the high calibre of entries received from across the globe, which are reviewed by our unrivalled panel of expert judges including Sir Richard Branson and Steve Wozniak.

At Talent we are passionate about recognising and supporting 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 Silicon Valley in the US on a bespoke tour of some of the region’s leading tech companies; 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 world’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 globally.

Your Chance to Shine


The technology and digital 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 3 global regions proudly for the first time in the USA and North America – the Unleashed Awards are now well and truly global!

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

2017 Global winners will be invited for a once in a lifetime chance to spend time with Woz at an all expenses paid trip to Silicon Valley, where they will also attend 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 2017 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!
