Nominations will open in March 

An emerging leader demonstrates the potential to assume a mid-to-high level leadership role. They can work in a vendor, distributor, partner or start-up. In vendor organisations or larger distributors they are strong performers who have the potential, ability and aspiration for higher-level management roles. In smaller distributors, some partner organisations and start-ups they are often entrepreneurs who are highly innovative or technology leaders who lack management and business acumen. 

The winners of the four award categories will be announced on Tuesday, May 7 at the ARN Emerging Leaders Forum at Ivy Sunroom, Sydney.
