Prestigious awards night honours high achievers

The region’s top women in business have been recognised at the Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network’s annual night of nights.

The Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network Awards also saw the region’s Outstanding 2023 Business Woman of the Year crowned.

On August 10, SCBWN, together with its valued sponsors, finalists and guests attended the 24th annual awards night.

The event served as a platform to honour and celebrate a remarkable and diverse assembly of businesswomen who have left an ingrained impact across multiple industries within our region.

This year, the prestigious Outstanding Business Woman of the Year was awarded to Renee Cooper from Indepth Accounting.

Other major winners across five categories included Angela Tondelstrand, Anna Owen, Josie Collins, Beth O’Leary and Jacqui Atique.

SCBWN president Min Swan extends heartfelt congratulations to all nominees, finalists and winners of this year’s awards.

“The awards are a celebration of the dedication, resilience and grit of every single businesswoman on the Sunshine Coast,” Ms Swan says.

“Every year I am reminded that we are surrounded by truly inspirational women who are at the forefront of their industries, right here in our region.

“Continuously, I am in awe of the stories we learn and the people we meet as part of the awards process.

Building an impactful business is not easy and so it’s wonderful to see these women reflect on and be acknowledged for their dedication and commitment to their careers and businesses.

“Their courage, diversity and innovation are the essential attributes that will help us navigate the future as we continue to grow and strengthen business on the Sunshine Coast.”

As the overall winner, Ms Cooper will also receive a major media prize worth $15,000 thanks to Sunshine Coast News, 91.9 Sea FM, 92.7 Mix FM, Channel 10 and Listnr.

This glamorous gala event is one of the most prestigious nights on the Sunshine Coast’s business and social calendar and consistently draws a gathering of more than 300 esteemed business leaders, dignitaries and sponsors.
