Plato’s 4th Annual Awards Night

Plato’s 4th Annual Awards Night

One crew. One year of hard work. One special night to celebrate it all. The highlight of the social calendar, Plato’s annual awards is a night of glamour and fun as we celebrate the successes of the business and recognise some of the individuals who have stood out. Held this year on a Friday evening in early May in The Emerald Room at Dux Central, we celebrated our team and the great achievements we’ve helped our clients towards in the last year.

SBO Awards

Introduced as a new category last year, 2018’s Smarter Business Outcome awards went to MyTax and Lone Star Loyal. In our 5+ year partnership with MyTax we’ve helped them grow from $4.5M worth of refunds in a year, to over $100M in the last tax year! As for Lone Star Loyal, with over 95,000 guests engaging with the app and revenue brought in via Loyal in the first year, safe to say it’s been a great success.

New categories

This year we also introduced another new category to acknowledge outstanding contributions to any project from an individual. This year’s winners were Tim O’Neill (Art Director) for his beautiful creative for Cavalier Wine and Will Dawber (Senior Developer) for his work creating the digital leaderboard for Redpaths’ internal sales incentive programme, ‘Game On’.

Supreme Winner - Julia

But the big noise of the night is the Supreme Award, which comes with a trip overseas for the winner! Julia Lax our Digital Marketing Manager was this year’s winner; an obvious choice to the team, who pretty much all voted for her. Julia’s had an epic year steering the digital marketing ship and growing her leadership skills.
