Zim Achievers Australia Announce 2018 Contenders

As Zimbabwe Achievers International’s global awards campaign draws to an end for 2018, the Australian edition has entered the final phase, announcing over 75 nominees for this year’s ceremony.

Sponsored by WorldRemit, aLondon-based Fintech Company, has been part of all four chapters this year.

ZAA International Chairman, Conrad Mwanza commended organisers in each country for a successful year, adding that Zim Achievers could only get bigger, better and stronger.

“It has been another wonderful year of recognising and celebrating the work that Zimbabweans are doing across the world and we are grateful to our global partner WorldRemit for being part of it this year,” he said.

“Zim Achievers is a global community initiative that has progressed since 2010, where it started in the UK and it is now present in South Africa, the US and Australia, and we are putting plans in place to introduce Canada shortly.”

“There is still so much more to achieve and I am both humbled and proud of the various teams across the world, as well as all our partners and those who, year in and year out, support the brand. ZAA continues to thrive because of the people around it who give it life,” he added.

Meanwhile, voting for this year’s group of nominees is now open and will close on 21 November

The event will take place on Saturday 24 November 2018 at the Marriott hotel in Melbourne.

Tickets are on sale for $90 and can be purchased exclusively from www.zimachievers.com/aus/buy-tickets

Organisers announced earlier in the campaign that Mandisa Mlisa will host this year’s gala.

Australia’s Organising Director, Method Mukundu said: “This year’s awards campaign has revealed another cohort of exceptional Zimbabweans doing well in a number of sectors in Australia.”

“What is unique about Zim Achievers, is that every year we uncover hidden talent. We find out more about the individuals who are making a huge difference. Individuals who we would not ordinarily recognise, if it were not for the general public who help us discover them and we thank everyone who played a part this year,” he added.

The awards, which started almost a decade ago, have become a permanent fixture in four countries and have been highlighting the successes and achievements of Zimbabweans, as well as bringing together business leaders and innovators from all sectors to celebrate, empower and network.
