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”
– Gina Field, Nepean Regional Security Managing Director

“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.”
– One Hotels and Apartments – Parramatta Mission

“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.”
– Rebecca Shaw, GWS Giants, General Manager Marketing and Consumer

On behalf of DCL Engineering we are very grateful and honored to be receiving this award – WSABE Patrons Choice for 2021.

 61 years ago this year, my father, Bill Green started our Company and this award is a testament to his dedicated hard work & work ethic and a recognition of our company’s continual growth.

 I would like to thank this wonderful team who continues to drive the business, helping with our investment in new technologies and providing the business with the platform and resources to be able to develop, grow and innovate.

 Thank you to the WSABE and the Parramatta Chamber of Commerce for the opportunity and the recognition.

 We look forward to our next 60 years of further innovations for DCL Engineering. 

-Greg Green, DCL Engineering, Managing Director.

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.
