Welcome to the 2018 Telstra Business Awards

For 26 years, the Awards have been a hub for Australia’s remarkable small and medium-sized businesses to gather, explore their dreams, celebrate their achievements and to become ‘that’ business.

These businesses have inspired us all with their resilience, courage, incredible commitment, and their ability to find new solutions and ways of working. Read more Since 1992, the Awards have showcased some of Australia’s best business talent, with over 45,000 businesses nominated to date.

I know this year will be no exception and I can’t wait to meet and celebrate with our entrants.

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