NZATD Learning and Development Awards 2023 Winners

Congratulations to our

2023 Award Winners

Congratulations to all the deserving winners of the NZATD Awards 2023! Each of you showcases the continuous strides being made in the L&D community, underlining innovation, dedication, and passion for growth.

We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who participated this year; your contributions are vital in driving the standards of excellence in the learning and development realm.

A special mention to our generous sponsors, without whom this evening wouldn’t have been the resounding success it was.

It’s pertinent to mention that not every category had a winner this year. We uphold stringent criteria to ensure the quality and prestige of these awards, and some categories this year did not meet the necessary standards. While this decision might seem tough, it is essential to maintain the credibility of the NZATD Awards. We trust in your understanding and look forward to seeing the remarkable work the L&D community will present in the years to come.

Here’s to celebrating brilliance and setting benchmarks in L&D!
