Busselton and Dunsborough businesses are being encouraged to take a giant step forward and nominate themselves or others for the 2018 Telstra Business Awards.

The founder of the Great Southern Distilling Company, last year’s WA Business of the Year, Cameron Syme, said it was an incredible opportunity that enabled their business to grow both internally and externally.

“Winning the 2017 Telstra WA Business of the Year Award has been fantastic for our business,” he said.

“As a regional and remote business, it’s been great for our team to be recognised as the best business in the state and the award has provided another platform for our business in international markets.

“I encourage other businesses to take that leap of faith in their own ability and to seize this opportunity which recognises their achievements.”

The Telstra Business Awards offer entrants, finalists and winners a range of benefits and opportunities including a comprehensive Business Benchmark Report with actionable advice and insights, as well as access to exclusive masterclasses and networking events.

For the 26 th year running, the Awards are giving WA’s best small and medium businesses (SMBs) and charities a chance to shine among their peers, and to demonstrate that they are ‘that’ business – a leader in their field.

Telstra Business Awards Ambassador Vicki Brady said the Awards are part of Telstra’s commitment to SMBs. 

“We’re proud to continue supporting WA businesses by providing them with the technology and tools they need to enable future success and we’re looking forward to celebrating their achievements through these awards,” she said.

“These awards target innovation and inspiration and provide WA businesses with the chance to unlock their potential.”
