The annual Australian HR Awards has been recognised as the leading independent awards event in the HR profession. The awards showcase the leading HR teams, leaders, programs and initiatives that raised the bar over the past year.


Unfortunately, due to the current situation with COVID, we have made the decision to transfer the event to a virtual format. We appreciate the continued cooperation and understanding of all registrants and partners throughout another challenging year. If you have purchased a ticket for the planned physical event, you will be able to transfer your purchase to one of our awards packages. The awards packages available will help you share and celebrate your success, ranging from a trophy and digital medal to a comprehensive multimedia editorial campaign. Toby Brown, will be in touch with you in the coming weeks to discuss your options. If you would like to give him a call, he would love to hear from you. His details are toby.brown@keymedia.com or 02 8437 4795.


The Australian HR Awards will now take place virtually on Friday, 17 September 2021. The event will feature the virtual awards ceremony and live panel discussions with excellence awardees. Complemented by a live chat and online networking through the peer matching functionality of the virtual platform, this is an unparalleled opportunity to go behind the scenes and engage with the country’s top HR leaders. The entire HRD community and all members of the HR industry are invited. Register for free here.


The Australian HR Awards is presented by HRD, the resource of choice for the country's most forward-thinking HR professionals.

Today Extra co-host, 9Network


As one of the most versatile members of the Nine Network’s news and current affairs team, Belinda Russell can be seen presenting the weather on Sydney’s flagship news bulletin, co-hosting Today Extra and reporting for the evening bulletins.


Belinda loves meeting and talking to people and turning their stories into great television. She has extensive experience presenting and producing news, current affairs and children's programs, across Australia and in the UK.


Hailing from Queensland, Belinda completed a degree in Communications and Journalism at the University of Southern Queensland, before joining Network Ten in Brisbane in 1999. After producing segments for Ten's long-running kids' environmental show Totally Wild Belinda joined the Ten News team as a reporter. She presented news and weather bulletins, before being asked to host Totally Footy, a new network program aimed at young AFL fans.


In 2002, Belinda headed to London, where she joined Sky News as a producer, gaining valuable experience in a breaking news environment. Her on camera ability was soon recognised by Sky executives who gave her a reporting gig - making her one of few Aussie journalists to work on camera in British television.
