When it comes to business, the world turns mighty fast and small and medium business owners can’t always find time to celebrate their successes. So, we’re here to help them find that time and to provide opportunities to take their businesses to the next level.

For more than 25 years, the Telstra Business Awards has helped put Australia's best small and medium businesses in the spotlight.

But the Awards are about more than looking back on past wins. We give business owners the chance to set the conditions for their future success, and we’re there to celebrate it with them when it comes.

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 the chance for you to unlock the potential of your business. 

25 years and counting of celebratory moments

Shines a spotlight on small to medium business across Australia

A word from our CEO

Welcome to the 2019 Telstra Business Awards.

For 27 years, the Awards have been a place for Australia’s remarkable small and medium-sized businesses to gather, explore their dreams, celebrate their achievements and to become ‘that’ business. Read more

These businesses have inspired us all with their resilience, courage, incredible commitment, 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 58,000 businesses nominated to date.

I know this year will be no exception and I cannot wait to meet and celebrate with the entrants.

From all of us here at Telstra, good luck. Read less
