Future Anything Wins Australian Small Business Champion Award 2023

Future Anything was named “Champion – Educational Services” at the 25th anniversary of the Australian Small Business Champion Awards ceremony, held on Friday 28 April 2023 at The Star Sydney.

The Australian Small Business Champion Awards is the only national recognition program for Australian small businesses.

The program highlights extraordinary people and acknowledges outstanding Australian small businesses.

The Champion Awards continues to shine a spotlight on the high standard of excellence seen throughout the small business sector across the nation.

“The Australian Small Business Champion Awards is a way to recognise the efforts of small businesspeople whose efforts contribute to the prosperity and vitality of communities across Australia. After 25 years of celebrating outstanding small businesses, I am in awe of the continued resilience and creativity small business owners across Australia continue to display“, said Steve Loe, Managing Director of Precedent Productions, and founder of the awards.

Nicole Dyson, Founder & CEO of Future Anything, was in Sydney to receive an award statuette, a limited edition 25th anniversary commemorative coin and certificate, as well as national recognition for her efforts as an industry leader.

Nic said “Recognition like this doesn’t come without some remarkable work behind the scenes from an extraordinary team, working together with passion, persistence, and commitment to the Future Anything vision.”

She added “It’s pretty incredible to think that our small and mighty team is working with 11200+ students, 1100+ teachers, and 130+ schools this year (so far) – and it’s only May.

Huge thank you to our schools, educators, and partners for their trust and investment in us – and their young people.”

Small businesses from across Australia delivered an unprecedented array of entries, with winners representing a broad cross section of industries from all states and territories.

The Australian Small Business Champion Awards are proudly supported by Awards Partners Nine Plus, NOVA Employment, CUB – Club of United Business, Xcllusive Business Sales, Castaway Forecasting and Big Clean.
