Category: News

NSW Deputy Premier and Minister for Trade and Investment and Minister for Regional Infrastructure and Services, Andrew Stoner, has confirmed his attendance at the 2012 My Business Awards by endorsing both the Awards and the SMEAA.

This year, the 12th ActionCOACH My Business Awards are on in the Grand Ballroom at The Hilton, Sydney on Friday September 28, and Stoner, a strong advocate for SMEs through his support of the SME Association of Australia (SMEAA), will be our VIP guest on the night. Andrew_StonerLG

“On behalf of the NSW Government, I offer my strong support for the 2012 My Business Awards,” the NSW Deputy Premier says.

“It’s really important that we acknowledge the many inspiring success stories in our SME sector, which is what the My Business Awards are all about. I congratulate all the nominees of the 2012 My Business Awards for their hard work, innovation and dedication. You are all worthy of this recognition.”

At this year’s My Business Awards the SMEAA will mark its one-year anniversary. The SMEAA is a not-for-profit association driven to support and equip SMEs for success and economic growth, and My Business is its official publication. Working with SMEAA CEO Caroline Hong and Executive Chairman Matthew Johnson, Stoner has been a strong advocate for the SMEAA.

“The SMEAA has been very active in representing the issues and needs relevant to SMEs to Government and in providing a range of other benefits to its members, so it’s fitting that the 2012 My Business Awards also marks the first anniversary of the SMEAA,” he says. “I want to congratulate the SME Association of Australia for its advocacy of, and support for, Australian SMEs, and for an outstanding first 12 months as an association.”
