Tonkin + Taylor (T+T) is proud to announce that we have been shortlisted at the prestigious Consult Australia Awards for Excellence. Helena Woolums, a Principal Environmental Consultant and the Environmental Discipline Manager in Australia, is a finalist in the hotly contested Future Leader category.
Helena has led the Environmental team since February 2021, navigating through the pandemic, growing her team, increasing employee retention, and increasing the team’s revenue.
As noted by one of her direct reports: “Helena is a very passionate, knowledgeable, and caring discipline manager. It’s inspiring as a young female scientist to see how successful a leader Helena is, especially so early in her career.”
Dr Tim Fisher, Managing Director of Tonkin + Taylor Group, said: “Helena’s nomination is testament to the impact she has had on the Environmental team in Australia, and the success she has made of her relatively short career to date. She embodies the T+T values of Everyone Matters, Excellence Everyday and Empowered to Deliver. I wish her the very best of luck.”
T+T is also a finalist in the Innovative Design category for our work on the Mordialloc Freeway project – you can find out more about that nomination here.
Nicole Neal, Chief Executive Australia of Tonkin + Taylor said: “I am delighted we are finalists in two Consult Australia Awards for Excellence categories. Helena has had a huge influence on our Environmental team since joining T+T two years ago, both as a leader and a mentor to her team, and we will all be keeping our fingers crossed that she is successful on the night!”
The winners will be announced at the Consult Australia Awards for Excellence ceremony on March 23 in Sydney.
