TAG Strategic Partner of the Year

The Strategic Partner of the Year Award is a prestigious accolade, recognising a TAG business partner of high caliber.

The award is presented to a Contracted or Endorsed Supplier of TAG who not only displays the most overall effective engagement with TAG, its members and student populations at a National Level, but also commits to leading edge, ethical, social, environmental and fair financial outcomes in their business operations.

The Award includes the criteria of excellence in service and delivery, support in the areas of student engagement, promotions and marketing, communications and an overall understanding of the unique needs of the Tertiary sector.

The challenges of 2020 have significantly impacted all elements of campus life. For most member organisations the struggle has been real in how to best support staff and students and navigate the ever-changing landscape. Therefore, TAG Strategic Partners have also had to adapt to these changing needs.

Successful applications will have demonstrated adaptability, flexibility and innovation in support of these changes for TAG members and their students.

Note: The award recipient will be chosen by a specific committee of TAG members experienced in all areas of the criteria.

Note: This award is deeply considered and not necessarily awarded annually.
