Ampcontrol Supporting The Next Generation of Creators, Innovations, Entrepreneurs and Business Leaders

The inaugural Hunter Young Business Mind Awards (HYBMA) in 2017 were the first steps in creating a program to connect and energise the future leaders of tomorrow. The Program is driven by Local Chambers of Commerce and business leaders who see the importance of building greater relationships and connections between industry, business, educators, parents and young people.

Ampcontrol is very proud to have been involved and support the Program for the past 2 years in helping create opportunities and career pathways for young people within our community.

On Thursday 7 November, 200 students, parents, educators, and supporters attended the 2019 Hunter Young Business Mind Awards Presentation, to celebrate the incredible innovation, creativity and savvy business minds of local students.

Check out some of the amazing ideas below and highlights from the night by clicking here.
