For 28 years, the Awards have been a celebration of Australia’s remarkable small and medium-sized businesses and have provided an opportunity to showcase innovation, share success and recognise hard work.

These businesses have inspired us all with their commitment to making a difference for their customers, and their ability to find new solutions and ways of working. Since 1992, the Awards have showcased some of Australia’s best business talent, with over 79,000 businesses nominated to date.

I encourage you to nominate an outstanding business today, or even better nominate your own business. I know this year will be no exception and I can’t wait to meet and celebrate with our entrants.

From all of us here at Telstra, good luck.
