Top 50 Small Business Leaders 2020 revealed

We are delighted to be able to reveal this year’s Australia’s Top Small Business Leaders. In a year that has been harder for small businesses than any other in living memory, it is particularly important that we celebrate the resilience and achievements of the sector.

Once again this year, our Top 50 Small Business Leaders Report, that can be downloaded here, illustrates the diversity of fields in which small-business owners have overcome the many challenges 2020 has thrown at them and not just survived but thrived.

The report features businesses from the length and breadth of Australia. From husband-and-wife aviation pioneers in the remote Northern Territory to a flourishing online marketplace that started as a storefront down in Tassie, and a sustainable coffee pod enterprise in the world’s culinary capital of Melbourne to an artisan’s market across in Perth, every single one of our Top 50 has come through COVID and are still going strong.

You can download the Top 50 Australian Small Business Leaders report, sponsored SME coaching specialists ActionCOACH here. And we’d love you to join us at this evening’s online launch event in conjunction with the Victorian Government – if you’d like to join in the fun you can register here.
