Last night, our director Stephen Pascall, along with Associate Director Johan Venter, Associate Design Manager Annabella Dao, and Business Manager Nicky Fell, proudly represented MCE Management • Commercial • Engineering at the prestigious Sydney Region Business NSW Awards Gala Night.

Held at the magnificent Sydney Town Hall, this event celebrated the ingenuity, resilience, and commitment of businesses throughout Sydney.

Business NSW recognises the critical role businesses play in driving economic growth, creating jobs, and enhancing the overall prosperity of our city. With over 300 guests and more than 30 finalists in attendance, MCE was honoured to be part of an evening that showcased the remarkable depth of business talent in Sydney.

We were thrilled to be finalists in three categories:

The Employer of Choice Award – Under 20 Employees, recognises a business that has implemented strategies and initiatives to create a stimulating and supportive workplace environment.

The Excellence in Small Business Award – recognises a business that has effectively driven growth and is able to demonstrate the specific strategies implemented to achieve business success and/or resilience and

Outstanding Young Business Leader (Annabella Dao) – recognises an inspirational business leader aged 35 or under who has demonstrated a commitment to their workplace, industry, and the community through leadership.

Although we didn’t take home a trophy this year, we are incredibly proud of our team for making it to the finals amidst such tough competition. Having won Employer of Choice in 2023, our commitment to excellence remains unwavering.

Congratulations to all the winners, and best of luck to everyone heading to the State finals later this year. MCE looks forward to continuing our journey of growth and success, inspired by the incredible businesses we celebrated with last night.

ICE Women in Fellowship Event


Last night, the Institute of Civil Engineers (ICE) hosted its Women in Fellowship Event at Sydney’s Arup offices. It was an evening dedicated to fostering dialogue about the journey of female engineers towards attaining Fellowship at the ICE.


MCE’s Business Manager, Nicky Fell, and Director, Thomas Lee, the current ICE Representative for NSW attended the event. The atmosphere was lively with bubbles, refreshments, and networking opportunities with industry peers.


The highlight of the evening was hearing from four remarkable female Fellows of the ICE: Rachel Fowler, Anna Squire, Claire Moore, and Carol Hopper. They shared invaluable insights into their individual paths to Fellowship and the motivations driving their pursuit. A common theme emerged—the credibility and support network afforded by the Fellowship title, especially crucial in Australia’s engineering landscape where only 13% of engineers are female.


It was heartening to learn about the instrumental role played by MCE’s Matt Colton, Recent Trustee for ICE membership and Council Member, in encouraging several of the speakers to apply for their Fellowships.


The event underscored the significance of mentorship in navigating the journey towards Fellowship. All four speakers generously offered their guidance and support to aspiring Fellows, emphasising the importance of mentorship in propelling more women into senior leadership roles within the engineering industry.


ICE’s Women in Fellowship initiative serves to empower women, driving the push to increase female representation in engineering and senior leadership positions. Through such initiatives, ICE is not just advocating for change but actively equipping women with the tools and support needed to advance their careers into more varied and influential roles. Together, we’re shaping a future where women thrive and lead in engineering.
