Now in their 25th year, the Telstra Business Awards are renowned for showcasing and celebrating the achievements and entrepreneurial spirit of Australia’s most brilliant small and medium businesses and charities.
Ms Peulich firmly believes that small and medium businesses and charities are the engine room of the economy and deserve to be recognised.
“Local business owners and leaders drive growth and deliver jobs for many Australians by pouring their hearts and souls into their businesses every single day,” Ms. Peulich said.
“It’s important they are recognised for their contributions not just to the economy but to the community as well.”
The Telstra Business Awards is a wonderful platform to celebrate their achievements, giving them the opportunity to receive national acclaim and paving the way for others.
While a Telstra Business Award recognises the current achievements of a business, it can also open up the possibility of many more in the future through enviable networking opportunities and the positive impact of external recognition.
