We’re delighted to congratulate Sandra Howlin, Senior ESD Consultant from our Darwin office, on becoming a Finalist in the Telstra Businesswomen of the Year 2014 Awards. This is a huge achievement and one of which we are very proud.

Today is being shaped by brilliant business women all over the country and the Telstra Businesswomen of the Year Awards is an opportunity to recognise these inspirational women. It provides a platform for one generation of Australia’s best and brightest to connect with and inspire the next.

“Earlier this year I was nominated for a Telstra Business Women’s Award in both the private and corporate and the innovation categories and, following several stages of rigorous assessment and interview, I made it to the NT Finals.

The Gala Awards night held on 3 October 2014 was a wonderful opportunity to reflect on my achievements and career to date, with the focus of the awards being around my conception and operation of the unique Environmental Sustainable Design (ESD) Consultancy at Irwinconsult, Darwin. It was a great opportunity to inform others about the pioneering work we provide here in the tropics, where ESD is in its infancy, and where much of our work is a first for the NT.  

I feel honoured that someone I have worked with has thought me worthy of a nomination – this in itself is reward enough for me. My involvement in the whole process has been most enjoyable, reflective and revitalising for me personally and I encourage you to get involved by nominating inspirational women who you meet in your day-to-day business.

Thanks to all who have supported me with your messages of encouragement along the way. I would like to especially thank another Irwinconsult woman, Hannah Blossom, who has been my mentor over the last decade with Irwinconsult and thank you to the company for providing me with the opportunity to develop the ESD in Darwin.”
