Consensus celebrated its 20th year in 2019 by running Awards twice in the year. Going forward the Awards will be run every six months. We have successfully run the Consensus Awards every year and have conducted in excess of 1,000 evaluations of innovative technology. Judging is conducted by over 180 judges, a huge brains trust!

We also run the Global Management Challenge (GMC) in ANZ and are introducing The Milky Way into Australia and New Zealand in early 2020. The GMC was started in Europe and is the world’s largest Management Challenge running in 30+ countries. The Milky Way developed in Sweden is the next generation of mapping tools to manage all of your IT systems. Click on the logos on right to see more details.

Independent analysis of the Winners since 1999 shows that 89% of the Winners have gone on to be extremely successful world-wide. The Judges have got it right 9 times out of 10, year on year, on year, on year, on year! Each of our programs feature clearly defined judging criteria, fully independent judges and Awards made on merit with results “Endorsed by Consensus“.
