I went last year. The speakers were very inspirational. Including previous award winners talking about their businesses. The 'celebs' Liz Frazer and Claire Young were really good too.
The Awards are very inspiring.
There was plenty of opportunties to network too. The main room was cabaret style and we were encouraged to speed network during one of the sessions. Was interesting hearing about the different businesses.
The goody bags were stuffed full too!
I didn't pay as I delivered a workshop, but I thought it was worth the money esp at the early bird rate.
