Corangamite business women encouraged to enter 2017 Telstra Business Women’s Awards

I encourage Corangamite residents to celebrate the achievements of exceptional business women by nominating someone special for the 2017 Telstra Business Women’s Awards.

There are many business women in Corangamite who come from a diverse range of backgrounds and are trail blazing in their respective industries.

Apart from the main award, there are five categories including entrepreneur, purpose and social enterprise, public sector and academia, corporate and private, and young businesswomen. 

2016 winners include Andrea Mason, CEO of the NPY Women’s Council (Business Woman of the Year), Jackie McArthur, Managing Director Australia and NZ for Martin Brower (Corporate and Private), Jenny Paradiso, co-founder and Managing Director of Suntrix (Entrepreneur) and Anna Ross, founder of Kester Black (Young Business Woman).

Anyone can nominate a business woman they admire, with entries open from Wednesday 26 April until Thursday 15 June 2017. 

State winners of the Telstra Business Women’s Awards will be announced at gala events later this year, with the Victorian Awards taking place on Tuesday 10 October 2017.

 The National Awards, including the announcement of the Telstra Business Woman of the Year, will take place at a gala dinner in Sydney on Friday 1 December 2017.

To nominate or enter go to or call the Telstra Business Women’s Awards on 1800 817 536 for further information.
