Our team are incredibly excited to share that Athlete Assessments and our Director and Lead Performance Consultant, Bo Hanson have been nominated as finalists in the 2023 Australian Institute of Training & Development (AITD) Excellence Awards.  Our nominations fall under two categories, Best Capability Building Program for our Elite Team Program, and Bo being named as a contender for the Dr Alastair Rylatt Award for L&D Professional of the Year.

As the AITD detailed in a recent press release,

“The AITD Excellence Awards recognize outstanding achievements in learning and development, setting new benchmarks for our members, recognizing, rewarding and sharing quality and innovation across the learning and development spectrum.”

Dr Alastair Rylatt Award for L&D Professional of the Year

The Dr Alastair Rylatt Award for L&D Professional of the Year highlights the significant contribution made by an individual to the learning and development industry over the last 18 months. Furthermore, this Award focuses on the demonstration of consistently high-quality leadership, skill, and knowledge development across the wider community.

Best Capability Building Program

The AITD Award for Best Capability Building Program is focused on the implementation of a capability building program that enhances individual or team performance and contributes to overall positive organizational performance.

Given Athlete Assessments’ extensive work with teams, athletes, and coaches in high-performance sport, it was only fitting that our application for Best Capability Building Program featured one of our highly successful clients, the Mississippi State University Women’s Volleyball team, coached by Julie Darty Dennis.
