Barbara Meredith Memorial Prize Winners 2021

Barbara Meredith Memorial Prize 

The Barbara Meredith memorial prize has been awarded by UNE Partnerships for the past 15 years. The award was established in November 2006 in honour of Professor Geoffrey Meredith’s late wife Barbara. The award was set up to raise the profile of practice management as a career and encourage practice managers to undertake formal study in ‘Practice Management’ qualifications for which Barbara was a strong supporter.

The prize is awarded on Academic merit and requires applicants to demonstrate excellence in their assessment submissions for the certificate and diploma courses in Practice Management.

Applicants are required to prepare and submit a report outlining how the practice management program has produced benefits for their practice. 11 students entered a submission for 2021 with a panel of judges including the Academic Directors of the program Cathy Baynie and Gary Smith awarding the following two prizes.

UNE Partnerships would like to congratulate this year’s Barbara Meredith Memorial prize winner – Elizabeth Akhiwu, Diploma of Professional Practice Leadership and runner up – Jillian Winfield, Certificate IV in Business for Practice Managers.
