Testimonials

“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.”

– Leon Dimino, Sparks+Partners Consulting Engineers Managing Director

“ 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
