FEDERAL Member for Leichhardt Warren Entsch is encouraging local small and medium businesses to “step into the spotlight” by entering the 2015 Telstra Australian Business Awards.
“Far North Queensland should be proud of the breadth of business innovation that we have in our region,” said Mr Entsch.
“This is an opportunity to gain some fantastic national exposure, a competitive advantage, and an opportunity to grow your business world.
“The chance to win a share of $800,000 worth of prizes is also a nice cherry on top.”
To enter, businesses need to fill out a report evaluating themselves against a number of indicators including business planning and performance, human resources, product development, and customer and financial management.
“This chance only comes once a year, so I’d strongly encourage all small and medium businesses to download a nomination form today from telstrabusinessawards.com. Applications close on 30 March,” said Mr Entsch.
The Telstra Business Awards have been running since 1992 – giving small and medium businesses an opportunity to be recognized for their hard work, commitment and success.
