Recognising Small Business

A retro-inspired boutique that's changed the face of Australian children's fashion took out the coveted Business of the Year prize in this year's City of Sydney Business Awards last Tuesday night.

Oobi Baby & Kids is one of 26 businesses recognised in the annual awards, which showcase the businesses playing a crucial role in making Sydney the cultural, creative and economic powerhouse it is today.

This year's City of Sydney awards were the biggest and best to date, with 640 businesses nominated and almost 67,000 votes across 22 categories.

It was really exciting to see such a diversity of successful small businesses celebrated in this year's program.

I would like to congratulate all the winners of this year's Business Awards along with the hundreds of nominees, and thank them for their incredible contribution to the life of our fantastic city.

The awards were decided by an independent high-profile judging panel, including: Greg Hayes and Garth McNally of Hayes Knight, Christopher Witt of Kalori Investment Group, Rob Anderson and Stephanie Gray of ANZ, Kate Groom of Starfish Consulting, Iain Smale of Pangolin Associates, Helen Giannakis of Cumberland Courier Newspapers, Paul Wallbank of Netsmarts, and Camden Jobbins, Esther Aarons and Gayle Sullivan of TAFE NSW.
