Doctor Catherine Ball, a world-leading drone pioneer, has won the Corporate and Private Award at the 2015 Telstra Business Women’s Awards last night.
Judges applauded Dr Ball’s use of drones to assist environmental and humanitarian projects.
Dr Ball says says the award is a fantastic achievement.
Catherine Ball: “To be a national award winner here today is like an award for Geek Sheek. I feel so excited that women in innovation and science have been recognised today. It’s not just about me, it’s about my team, about everyone else that’s trying to do something a little bit different and trying to push the boundaries in corporate life and when it comes to science.”
