An Inspiration

The Directors of K.I.S.S. Communications worked with Nelson Mandela many years ago on World Reconciliation Day and are respectfully sad to hear of his passing and valued the time they spent working with such a truly inspirational and noble man. His passing is a great loss to humanity.

Inspirational Awards

One of the Directors of K.I.S.S. is a Judge on the panel of the Melbourne Awards, which is a very special awards program conducted each year and we encourage any business, not-for-profit or individual interested in entering the awards to obtain an application for the awards which open in April 2014.

The Melbourne Awards are our city’s highest accolade. Over the past decade the awards have celebrated and rewarded the inspirational people and organisations who dedicate their time and energy to help shape our city. The awards honour Melburnians who have made a significant contribution to Melbourne life in the areas of sustainability, community and profile. These three areas of contribution have been identified as vital elements for securing Melbourne’s future as a thriving, forward-thinking capital city.

The 2014 Melbourne Awards program will launch in late April with the call for nominations.
