Liberal Senator for Western Sydney, Senator the Hon Marise Payne, has reminded local businesses that entries for the Western Sydney Awards for Business Excellence (WSABE) close on Monday, 14 June at 11.59 PM.

Now in its 31st year, WSABE recognizes the achievements of businesses and their employees across several award categories, including in innovation, exporting and community leadership.

Senator Payne, who will again be the keynote speaker at this year’s gala dinner in Parramatta, said WSABE was a unique opportunity to showcase how far Western Sydney’s business community had come since the COVID-19 pandemic struck.

“Last year there was a particular focus on resilience and ingenuity, with so many companies successfully adapting to meet a very challenging operating environment,” Senator Payne said.

“This year, as our economic recovery gathers pace, I look forward to again joining with our hardworking businesses to celebrate how far they’ve come, the contribution they make to our nation, and to look ahead to the future.”

“As Australia’s third largest economy, Western Sydney businesses are part of the lifeblood of our national economy, so it’s only fitting their achievements are highlighted.”

The Hon Alan Cadman OAM, Patron of WSABE, said the awards provided a platform for both established and emerging businesses and professionals to receive the recognition they deserve.

“With more than 150 eligible postcodes, I recommend that all businesses and professionals in Western Sydney enter WSABE and make use of the platform to showcase their success, demonstrate credibility, and connect with other key leaders across our high performing region,” Mr Cadman said.

David Mumford, Managing Director of RBK Nutraceuticals and winner of the 2020 Commonwealth Bank Business of the Year, encouraged businesses to nominate.

“Nominating for WSABE was a valuable tool for our business to review our strategies, identify the challenges we’ve faced over the course of the year and remember the wins we had made on the way. It’s a real morale boost to be celebrated amongst your peers and I strongly encourage all businesses to participate,” Mr Mumford said.

WSABE is supported by 18 local business chambers from across Western Sydney.

The annual gala dinner, where WASBE winners will be announced, will be held at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse in Parramatta on Friday, 3 September 2021.

Previous WASBE keynote speakers have included the former Prime Minister of Australia, The Hon Julia Gillard AC, and The Hon Gladys Berejiklian MP, Premier of New South Wales.

Entering WASBE is free, and businesses are encouraged to self-nominate.
