Testimonial from Young Achievers Award 2020 winner

This is what Meg Coles (Senversa) had to say about her experience:

Participating in the NSW Young Achievers Event has given me an increased confidence and appreciation of my ability within the contaminated land field. The opportunity of presenting at Ecoforum also helped to cement an increased appreciation of the importance of collaboration with other professionals within the industry and has helped me to expand my professional network. Overall, this was an extremely beneficial personal and professional learning experience.”
