In its tenth year, the LearnX Impact Awards aims to identify and celebrate exceptional accomplishments of individuals and organisations in learning and development.

ASADA’s Education Manager, Chris Hume, commented:

“We are pleased to see that the course has been recognised as an outstanding eLearning resource by LearnX. The Ethical Decision Making course was a product of collaboration between Kineo, the National Integrity of Sport Unit and ourselves, and it’s exceeded our expectations in demonstrating that decision making in sport isn’t just black and white.”

Nolen Smith, Managing Director of Kineo APAC, commented:

“I'm continually humbled by the dedication, capability and creativity of the team. I'm very pleased that they have, once again, been recognised for the extra effort they put in to deliver superior products for our clients.”

• Gold: Best Behaviour Change Project awarded to Kineo and Inland Revenue for the project: The Rooms – Information Management to help ensure compliance with the Public Record Act 2005.
