On Friday 28th June at the Hyatt Regency Perth, the Institute of Public Administration (IPAA) held its annual awards event. Clive Elliott, the One Life Agency Coordinator, was awarded the "Hyatt Regency Perth Award Not-For-Profit Leader of the Year” in recognition by the IPAA of the pivotal role he has played in the Western Australian Suicide Prevention Strategy over the last three years.
Clive has made significant contributions to suicide prevention initiatives within over 200 workplaces throughout WA and has pioneered, developed and implemented a wide range of best practice options.
Clive was nominated by his colleagues at Centrecare meeting the nomination criteria which included being a person working in a senior position, having clearly demonstrated leadership qualities, well respected and demonstrated excellence in leading a team to meet designated objectives and outcomes in the interests of public service.
Clive's success was strengthened by two excellent references provided to the IPAA judging panel as part of the submission requirement. Strong, detailed, professional references provided by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Department of Fisheries and Department of Mines and Petroleum were further testament to his professional competency, commitment and respect within the industry.
The award is both a personal and professional recognition of the service Clive has provided to both Suicide Prevention in WA and also to Centrecare.
Centrecare and One Life congratulate Clive Elliott on this achievement.
