Event: 2016 Ethnic Business Awards
When: 5th November, 2016
Founded in 1988 by Joseph Assaf AM, the Ethnic Business Awards are Australia’s longest running national business awards program, celebrating diversity and multiculturalism, and the achievements of migrants, who come to Australia with a “suitcase full of dreams”; and whose creation of new jobs, wealth and ideas, have contributed to cementing the harmony of multicultural Australia. Their ingenious and enterprising characters contribute greatly to the country’s business and social landscape, and it is the goal of the Ethnic Business Awards to celebrate their journey.
Tonight Sam was announced the winner of the 2016 Ethnic Business Award for Medium-Large Business.
In his speech he shared;
“Success doesn’t choose you, you choose success.
It doesn’t matter where you went to school, where you came from, what your history is, or where you are in life right now, what matters is your drive, tenacity, and strength, to keep moving forward.”
The Hon Julie Bishop MP addressed the audience at the event stating;
“Australia is the most successful multicultural nation in the world. We are bound by the basic principle of respect for each other as fellow human beings, regardless of race, background or ethnicity. Every Australian is a beneficiary of the diversity that is at the heart of our nation and it is right that we should celebrate it.”
