Western Sydney Awards for Business Excellence
In 2022, the Western Sydney Awards for Business Excellence (WSABE) platform is proud to be celebrating it’s 32 Anniversary.
WSABE was proudly founded by the Parramatta Chamber of Commerce in 1990 and remains the most prestigious awards program in the Greater Sydney region. The WSABE platform annually recognises outstanding business leaders and organisations who are actively contributing to Western Sydney region’s rapidly developing economy. Since it’s inception in 1990, WSABE has acted as a launching pad for many of Western Sydney’s high profile businesses and professionals, and across 32 years of operation has received more than 5,000 entries. Since 2015, WSABE have been archiving our winners and maintaining an alumni group, which can be viewed here.
In 2021, WSABE were proud to stand by the Greater Western Sydney business community and deliver a program that offered a voice to the many businesses, professionals and leaders throughout the region who had showcased an extraordinary pedigree of resilience, innovation, and drive. Through a unique hybrid event that combined both physical and virtual components, the 2021 WSABE Gala hosted 500 guests in a COVID-Safe manner at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on Friday the 20th November in the presence of Senator the Hon. Marise Payne, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Minister for Women. To view the media release, please click here.

“Receiving the 2016 WSABE Business of the Year Award (along a few others), has been a truly satisfying experience that has catapulted Sparks+Partners into the spotlight based on genuine hard work, reward and recognition. Competing with so many other talented Western Sydney businesses was an honour and an opportunity to discover new connections and uncover the best in the west. We encourage anyone considering entering to take the plunge, the effort and experience is absolutely worthwhile.”

“ The WSABE award is not one to be on a mantle, the flow on effect and power of the award certainly has surpassed my expectations, with continued personal and business growth. From an avid awards goer, the WSABE awards, I would have to say are the pinnacle of any awards program for business success”

“The WSABE awards are a great way to showcase the amazing contributions of extraordinary people right across Greater Western Sydney. We are very proud as a non-profit organisation to be awarded finalist in the Excellence of Social Enterprise category for 2017. We look forward to continuing to promote the great work that is being done in the community sector and all who work in it. I commend WSABE for providing a platform where Greater Western Sydney businesses and community groups can come together and be celebrated.”

“We at the Greater Western Sydney GIANTS were delighted to receive the marketing award at the 2016 WSABE Gala Dinner. Being part of the community of organisations associated with the Chamber along with those who attended on the night gives us a genuine connection with business within Western Sydney. The process in the lead up to the awards night including the nomination process was seamless and we were honoured that our marketing campaign won this award and can therefore be seen to resonate with the community in which we are part of.”

To win the Excellence in Arts and Culture Award for the second year in a row is deeply validating especially as they coincide with the two hard years of COVID. Within and without the organisation it confirms we are making the difference we hope to achieve, galvanising us into a common purpose. For every member of the team, the over 100 artists we employ, the over 70 partners we work with, the recognition of the excellence we achieve through our programs and for the people we serve energises us to continue to provide the platform for our stories to be told and celebrated.
-Michael Campbell, WestWords Executive Director.
