Welcome to the National Business Brilliance Awards & Conference!

Now in it's 6th year, the National Business Brilliance Awards & Conference is a celebration of amazing women in business (who also manage to fulfil the role of amazing mum) - by way of showing off their products and services, listening to their inspiring stories and celebrating their achievements.

The Conference & Awards will be held on Saturday 18th May 2019, and will feature approx 30 stallholders, amazing speakers and networking galore on the day! The Awards night will follow the Conference - a night of celebration and networking - culminating in awarding 12 amazing women in business as the best in their field. 

The Awards 

The National Business Brilliance Awards has been celebrating amazing women in business for 5 years now. That's 52 winners, 104 finalists and innumerable nominations.

We are so determined to ensure that women in business are recognised for the incredible job they do, that the National Business Brilliance Awards are entirely judged. Our judges read and mark every entry and there is no social media voting; ensuring all winners are determined based on merit.

To ensure judging is completely fair, every category has it's own judging panel. The panel is made up of the Award sponsor (a woman in business who has experience within the field and is managing the category) and two guest judges. Many of these judges head up Oz-wide known businesses like Source Bottle, Whole Kids, What's On 4, The Entrepreneurial Mother, Virtually Yours, Fi Mims Photography and Fourzero.
