Businesses in the health and technology sectors feature prominently in the different categories with many blending the two in the pursuit of future success in a challenging market.
One such business is IGTC®- Image Guided Therapy Clinic, a specialist interventional radiology clinic, which provides tertiary medical care in outpatient facilities. Having introduced a number of non-surgical procedures, IGTC is harnessing leading technology to offer patients an alternative to invasive treatment or powerful pain medication.
Also using technology to tackle some of WA’s most prevalent health concerns is wellness centre Floating Euphoria. The business was founded after owner Simon Tien’s career as a paramedic highlighted the endemic toll that stress was taking on people. Floating Euphoria’s sensory-deprivation sessions allow customers to experience a feeling of weightlessness which is found to alleviate the symptoms of both physical and mental stress.
Celebrating 25 years in 2017, the Telstra Business Awards are the longest running program honouring the achievements of Australia’s best small and medium businesses (SMBs) and more recently, charities as well.
Telstra Business Executive Director, Brendan Donohoe, said this year’s finalists were demonstrating what it takes to become ‘that’ business – a leader in their field, a name that is trusted and admired and being an organisation that inspires others.
“Many of the WA finalists are great examples of innovators and early adopters who have used technology to help them gain an advantage in the market. They show how technology is fundamentally changing the way businesses operate today and delivering enormous benefits,” he said.
“This year, we are delighted to be celebrating 25 years of the Telstra Business Awards and all that Australian businesses and charities contribute to our economy and way of life. They inspire us with their relentless pursuit of finding new and better ways to do things through their resilience, the courage to take risks and an incredible talent and commitment.”
Other finalists include TechCamps4Kids, an organisation intent on inspiring the next generation of creative thinkers, problem solvers and leaders of the future. With its varied program of workshops, TechCamps4Kids provides children with a familiar and comfortable tech-focused environment in which to enhance their life, learning and literacy skills.
