The telco says its 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".

The awards have been held for 26 consecutive years, with Telstra saying they give, "Australia’s best small and medium businesses and charities a chance to shine among their peers, and to demonstrate that they are ‘that’ business – a leader in their field".

Vicki Brady, Telstra Business Awards ambassador and group executive, Consumer and Small Business, said the awards were part of Telstra’s commitment to SMBs.

She added: “As a technology company and trusted adviser to SMBs, we are proud to be able to continue empowering businesses by providing them with the tools they need to enable their future success, and we’re there to celebrate with them with these awards.

“From the personalised Business Benchmark Report and networking opportunities, to the national recognition finalists and winners receive, the Telstra Business Awards not only support innovation and inspiration in our business community, they provide businesses with the chance to unlock their potential.

“The awards celebrate exceptional businesses from across the country and provide an opportunity for Australia’s brightest business minds to step up and reflect on their hard work.”

Co-founder and director of GenWise Health, the 2017 Telstra Australian Business of the Year, Dr Sebastian Rees, urged Australians to nominate deserving local businesses and highlighted the benefits of entering the awards.

“Winning the national award in 2017 has already had a significant impact on GenWise Health’s business. We’ve had a surge in new inquiries from key stakeholders in our industry. It has been invaluable in raising our profile in the aged-care and health sectors,” he said.

So, Australian businesses are encouraged to make this year ‘that’ year by heading to the website and nominating today!
