This week the Toowoomba Chamber will kick off the local business Awards Season with the launch of the Focus HR Business Excellence Awards 2023.

The Toowoomba Region has a rich and diverse economy. An economy based on a range of industries, including mining and manufacturing industries, robust agricultural and horticultural industries, a growing hospitality and tourism market, a large health and wellness sector and a diverse and growing small business sector. 

An economy led by our top five industries (by business count):

  1. Agriculture, forestry and fisheries;
  2. Construction;
  3. Rental, hiring and real estate services;
  4. Professional, scientific and technical services; and
  5. Transport, postal and warehousing.

An economy consisting of a vast array of over 16,000 businesses, with 62.6% non-employing sole traders, 35% with one to 19 employees, 2.3% with 20 to 199 employees and 0.1% with 200 plus employees.

The large and diverse business base is supported by places of natural and man-made beauty, including the Toowoomba Wellcamp Airport which connects us to the world and beyond; a community spirit second to none.

The Focus HR Business Excellence Awards 2023.

Hosted by the Toowoomba Chamber are specifically designed to celebrate the efforts and achievements of our diverse and dedicated business community and recognise their contribution, not only to economic vitality but to creating a strong, healthy, innovative, vibrant and nation leading regional community that is the Toowoomba Region.

This year, we want to hear from local businesses.  We want local businesses to “Tell Their Story”.

Storytelling is one of the most powerful crafts in the world.  And business storytelling can bring PR, media attention and even fame.  However, it is more than that, business stories are what weaves a company and community together.

When a business knows its story, and its relevance and everyone else will too!

Look out for the Launch of our Awards season on our website and digital platforms.

This year is your opportunity to tell your story.  We believe it should be heard.
