Telstra business awards
MR WALL (Brindabella) (5.42): I rise this evening to acknowledge and congratulate all recipients and nominees for the 2014 Telstra ACT business awards. I had the pleasure of attending the awards at the QT hotel on 4 July, when it was great to meet and talk to so many business owners and operators who are all such substantial contributors to our city's diverse economy.
Will Irving, the group managing director for Telstra Business, said in his opening address—and the remarks are in the booklet—that in every pocket of Australia, in far-flung remote towns, in suburban fringes and in our sprawling metropolises, small and medium-size businesses are being brilliant; they are the heart of many local communities and they are the backbone of the Australian economy. Small and medium-size businesses in the ACT are no different. I would like to echo those sentiments and also pay tribute to Telstra for their continuing initiative with the Telstra business awards to identify and celebrate the successes of local small and medium-size businesses.
