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

– Senator The Hon. Marise Payne, Parliament of Australia, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Women

“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,”

– The Hon Alan Cadman OAM, Patron of WSABE

“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,”

– David Mumford, Managing Director of RBK Nutraceuticals and Winner of the 2020 Commonwealth Bank Business of the Year

“The consistent rise in award engagement over the past several years is a testament to the importance of the Greater Western Sydney business community to Australia’s overall economy. This, combined with the stories of resilience that we have received across the past two years, demonstrates the willingness of our WSABE applicants to innovate during times of difficulty and find new ways to continue contributing to this important economy.”

– Roy Halabi, WSABE Chair

“ 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

“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 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.”

– Rebecca Shaw, GWS Giants, General Manager Marketing and Consumer


“As a WSABE Judge, I was impressed by the fantastic talent and capabilities displayed by all the applicants this year. COVID has been a difficult time for businesses across Greater Sydney, but what we’ve seen is that in the face of adversity, businesses have adapted their practices and offerings to fit the needs of their customers and communities. It has been insightful and inspiring to see the images and hear the stories of our local businesses who pivoted during COVID and reinvented themselves, as we have at WSABE. I look forward to the upcoming announcement of the category winners.”

– Vanessa Ferreira, Manager Project Engagement, Parramatta Light Rail and WSABE Judge
