Anyone that has made the big decision to move abroad will say that while it is very exciting and a life-changing experience, it also has its challenges. Not only are you maybe leaving family behind, but most definitely you are leaving your friends, connections and relationships, and most likely your language and culture as well. To start a new life on a personal note is one thing, and to start a new life professionally can be another.
In our skilled and professional team here at illuminance Solutions, we have younger and older staff members. We have multicultural backgrounds and we have a variety in professional and educational backgrounds. And we have ambitious and super talented women. Two of our staff members are currently engaged with Women in Technology WA (WiTWA) where they will be sharing their expertise and professional journeys.
2019 seems to be a year that just keeps on giving, and the team at illuminance is again being recognised for their immense efforts and quality work. Earlier this year we received one global award by Microsoft and one WA award for our diverse workforce. Barely back on the ground with both our feet, we have been nominated to more awards.

No matter where you are right now in your professional journey, there is nothing more important than saying thank you – to your colleagues, clients, family, anyone who has contributed to getting you to where you are today. Never underestimate the power of words, especially when it comes to business.
On Wednesday 11 September, we invited to an Award Celebration & Thank You Party in our office, to finally celebrate the award wins and to thank everybody involved in our journey. The official celebration of the Microsoft award was in Las Vegas in July, but our CEO did not feel that it was right to celebrate without all the people that made our success possible.
There’s no denying that winning awards bring some benefits; recognition on an international stage, news coverage, increased brand awareness and perhaps a competitive advantage. But just because you’ve won some awards does not mean life is about to get easy – your Ninja Warrior journey is far from over.
We are half way in to 2019 now, and after finalising our EOFY and everything that includes, we have some time to reflect over the events and happenings of 2019. The last six months has been extremely eventful and we are amazed over how much we have achieved!
We have always been a very diverse team, with age diversity and people with disabilities in addition to many different ethnicities and nationalities. This week, on Tuesday 25th June, we received the Rising Star 2019 Award for Diversity in the beautiful Government House Ballroom!
