The annual My Business Awards is returning for its 14th consecutive year in 2014 to again recognise the finest SME business owners throughout Australia and to honour their achievements in business. 

The 2013 My BusinessAwards night was held at Marquee at The Star, Sydney’s opulent casino complex in Darling Harbour. With last year’s Awards night, the My Business/Toro Media team aimed – and delivered – a fresh, entertaining and lively new format for a business awards evening. And this year we’re aiming to create a similar event. This year’s venue and date will be announced in the coming months.

Melbourne-based hearing aid innovators Blamey Saunders hears were the big winners at the 2013 My Business Awards. The company, formed by Dr Elaine Saunders and Professor Peter Blamey, took out the McAfee Award for Best Use of Technology, before beating out the seven other finalists to win the ActionCOACH Overall Award for Outstanding Excellence.

Speaking to My Business after last year’s My BusinessAwards night,Saunders said winning at the My BusinessAwards was an honour for her business.

“It’s terrific!”, she said. “When you’re doing something disruptive it can be a bit lonely, so it’s terrific to have the recognition of the business community. It’s extremely valuable…I feel very honoured. We were always very hopeful, but you know the other applicants are going to be good quality. It really helps strengthen our brand, and it helps get the word out about us. It’s really that peer recognition, which is tremendous support for us.”
