The Elumin8 think tank has won the world-first China Australian Millennial Project on Friday night at the Summit’s Gala Dinner held at Sydney Town Hall.
 
Through a rigorous judging process, the Elumin8 think tank surpassed other top finalists, showcasing the best insights, projects, and young talent to emerge from the five day Summit.
 
Going head-to-head members of the Elumin8 think tank pitched their ideas to a room of venture capitalists, sponsors, impact investors and the savviest amongst the business community, competing for funding to implement the most innovative plans.
 
As the platinum sponsor of the CAMP initiative, Westpac wanted to celebrate the calibre of these first movers who are leveraging the opportunities in the Asia century, by awarding one outstanding delegate with the Westpac Future Leaders Prize of AUD $5,000 towards career or professional development.
 
Westpac is delighted to announce that the Westpac Future Leaders Prize is awarded to Ruby Jiang, a delegate in the China Australia Free Trade Agreement think tank.
 
Ruby Jiang has been awarded an AUD $5,000 contribution which can be used for professional development, training or coaching from The Institute of Executive Coaching and Leadership.

“At Westpac, we recognise that as leaders today, we should seize every opportunity to help develop the leaders of tomorrow. This award will provide exactly that for Ruby.
