I am so thrilled and excited to have recently been announced as an Australian Small Business Champion in the 2021 Australian Small Business Champion Awards! This is a prestigious honor and I feel beyond grateful for the recognition.
The Australian Small Business Champion Awards first began in 1999 and since then have served as one of Australia’s premier awards programs for small business owners. The awards seek to recognise the hard work that business owners contribute to the local community and economy by generating employment for millions of Australians.
As a business and marketing consultant who works with small business owners myself, this initiative is especially close to my heart and makes the honor even more special!
While I unfortunately wasn’t able to be there in person to accept the award, I want to give a big thanks to my agent Lauren from Audacious Agency for accepting it on my behalf and saying a few words I wanted to share.
Here’s a transcription of the speech:
“Thank you SO much for recognising my hard work tonight and for the opportunity to be honoured with a win.
My vision for Olivia Jenkins Consulting has always been crystal clear. “To be recognised as Australia’s most prestigious consultant specialising in scaling health, beauty, fashion and lifestyle eCommerce brands and transforming them into cult brands.”
I coined the business tagline the “CEO’s Wing Woman” when founding my business as I knew that being the trusted friend, voice of reason and strategic headset for my clients was what set my heart on fire after a corporate career in General Management.
Fast forward to almost three years down track, this tagline could not be more accurate. I’ve now served over 90 clients in the industry and generated more than $30m in sales. It has not only been an absolute honour personally and professionally, but it has also changed the lives of my clients forever.
Tonight, a dream has come true for me and I want to thank my clients, my team, my husband and my kids for their never ending support.”
If you have been a member of my community for any length of time or have ever worked with me in any capacity, I want to give a big thanks to you as well for supporting my dream and allowing special moments like this to be possible. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!
