FULL VIDEOS: The Consensus Awards December 2019 see 5 innovation technologies win awards Featured


Five highly innovative Australian technologies have won awards in the second round of Consensus Awards in 2019, across Software, Innovation, GreenTech and AgTech.

The Awards were co-presented by Julian Day, Founder and CEO of Consensus and Richard White, Founder & CEO of WiseTech Global, a winner of a Consensus Award in 2004, and now with a market cap of $8 billion on the ASX.

Consensus Awards celebrates its 20th year identifying the most innovative technology solutions which are locally designed and developed.

We're told that well over 1000 assessments have been conducted by the pool of 180+ independent judges across nine different Awards Programs.

A video recording of the event is embedded below, as are two time lapses of the event from different angles, an edited version of the live stream, as well as a video interview with Craig Hendricks, the Founder and COO of Farmbot, the winner of the Consensus 2019 AgTech Award.

Former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, who has presented the Awards on two occasions, said: “The Consensus Awards have a history of celebrating some of the most cutting-edge and innovative Australian tech companies, counting world-famous firms Atlassian and WiseTech Global as former recipients. I have no doubt that this year’s recipients will follow in their success.”

Richard White of WiseTech Global spoke about his confidence in the highly respected Consensus Awards, stating: “When we entered in 2004, we did so to validate our innovation and have our go-to-market strategy reviewed by a large number of industry professionals.

"Winning a Consensus Award gave us the confidence to push ahead and expand our business with the added benefit of opening doors around the world.”

Here is the video of the event, followed by the list of winners, and more videos of the event:
