KBDi were surprised and delighted to be announced the WINNER of a special industry group award at an online ceremony on Wednesday, 1 December 2021.

The Association Turnaround of the Year Award™ was open to industry associations who had – as the name would suggest – successfully ‘turned themselves around’ in recent times. KBDi Executive Director, Royston Wilson CKD Au, CBD Au, attended the Association Forum event, and was thrilled to be declared the winner in a pool of five strong finalists. 

In his acceptance speech, Royston attributed the successful turnaround to a strong team of players. From the dedicated work of former executive Director, Greg Grant CKD Au, to the contributions of the always-committed and fastidious Board President, Peter Sveinsson CKD Au, Royston acknowledged the support offered by his industry colleagues. He thanked his long-serving team of management and administrative staff, and honoured his wife and best friend, Pamela, for her ongoing support and encouragement as Royston settled in to his role at the head of this winning team. 

Of course, none of this would be possible without our much-valued Partners and Members, and we hereby dedicate this Award to each and every member of our growing KBDi community.

Following is the entry video that helped secure the win for us all.
