The Australian Enterprise Awards returns seeking to acknowledge those businesses and individuals who have played a pivotal role in the resurgence of one of the world’s biggest economies. As one of the top 15 highest grossing economies in the world, Australia boasts many individuals and organisations from across a myriad of sectors and industries deserving praise and recognition.
The trade Australia engages in across the globe makes it a major player in the world economy and the Australian Enterprise Awards will shine a light on the firms and individuals who’ve contributed to Australia’s perseverance to retain this role, despite the worldwide economic struggles.
The impact of COVID-19 has wreaked unprecedented upheaval and many in the business community are still getting to grips with the biggest peace-time crisis they’ve ever had to deal with. It has however, offered business leaders an opportunity to innovate and bring about permanent positive change and this is an incredibly exciting time to be nominated and get noticed.
From construction, finance, mining, energy and the life sciences industries to its popularity as a holiday and emigration destination, the Australian Enterprise Awards recognises all who are making valuable contributions to the depth of the nation’s economy and international status.
All winners within the Australian Enterprise Awards are commended purely on merit; we take pride in discovering what makes each business stand out from its competition. We consider an organisation’s achievements over the past 12 months, as well as its’ reputation amongst its’ peers and, most importantly, the company’s presence within the market. We believe this makes the Australian Enterprise Awards one of the most reputable in its field!

The research team casts their final judgment based on various criteria such as business performance, longevity, diversification, growth (either sustained or rapid), significant innovations, feedback from stakeholders etc.
Once winners are selected, they are personally notified before any public announcement is made, allowing time for any communications throughout the wider business and the coordination of marketing strategies. Unfortunately, not everyone can be a winner; however, all who take part are encouraged to come back next year. Once the press embargo is lifted, details of our award winners will be made public via the APAC Insider website, award winners’ magazine and subscriber newsletter.
