Awards to celebrate our brilliant local business women

THE Gold Coast community has been called on to celebrate brilliant business women by nominating them for the 2014 Telstra Business Women’s Awards. 

As the longest-running state, territory and national awards program for business women, the Telstra Business Women’s Awards provide an exceptional opportunity to showcase inspirational business women leaders.

Member for Burleigh Michael Hart MP urged his community to get behind our local business women by nominating them for an award.


“The Awards recognise business women whose passion, creativity, leadership and success make a positive impact to our community and inspire other women to walk in their footsteps and reach their own goals,” Mr Hart said.

“Twenty years ago the Telstra Business Women’s Awards encouraged women to break through the glass ceiling; today they play an important role in encouraging diversity in business in Australia.”

Winners across Australia share in a total prize pool of more than $650,000 and will be announced at a gala dinner on September 30.

The Awards have three qualifying categories for business owners, employees in the private and corporate sector and employees in community and government agencies.

Entrants can also be considered for two specialist categories for innovation and young business women.

Nominations can be made at or by calling 1800 817 536. Entries can be submitted from May 26 and close July 14.
