Nolan and I’m the CEO of Peer. Firstly, thank you to the
Australian government, the last two days here have
exceeded all of my expectations. It’s been absolutely fantastic meeting all the finalists and attending
these awards tonight. Thank you to all the staff at
Peer for all their hard work. We’ve got Phil Dodd
here, Principal Trainer. And Demi Hoppo, have been
tremendous contributors, but there’s a lot of
people back in Adelaide that have undertaken a lot of work over the last couple of years. Two years ago we set a vision to become Australia’s leading
learning organization. We’ve revolutionized
student-centered learning. We’ve developed a
high-performance peer academy and we’ve now developed a online interactive communication portal for students and employers
that’s unique in Australia. Thank you very much. (audience applause) – Congratulations, and
can I recognize also our winner for 2017 here
