Challenging times.


There is no blueprint for navigating a global pandemic but I am immensely proud of how our team has adapted quickly to deliver results for our members and our organisation in an uncertain, unpredictable and volatile environment.

Last year, I said advocacy for NSW businesses had never been more important. This also rings true for this financial year. Faced with the ongoing disruption of the pandemic, we have maintained focus on our members' needs and seized opportunities to respond quickly and campaign heavily.

Annual Report 2020

Advocacy for NSW even more critical.


Contemplating FY20 ahead of time, it was always going to be a big year for us. What we did not anticipate was the global COVID-19 pandemic and the massive impact it would have on our members.

As an organisation, we have always said to our members, “Through thick and thin, we’re with you on every step of your journey.” In difficult times, this commitment is more important than ever. 
Lyall Gorman, President Business NSW.

Annual Report 2019

Thriving in uncertain times


The past year has seen a great deal of uncertainty internationally and here in Australia. Tensions in global trade and shifts in economic power have brought increased volatility to the business and investment environments. Advances in communications continue to revolutionise the way society operates, and technology advances are rapidly disrupting traditional business models. At the same time vigorous political debate in Australia is driving further changes.
Nola Watson, President NSW Business Chamber.

Trust in business


This year has shone the spotlight on the importance of integrity and trust in business. Hardly a day has passed without media attention or commentary highlighting questionable behaviour by someone in the business community. While individual companies have been singled out for attention, the cumulative effect has been tarnishing the reputation of business more generally.

A strong heritage to build on


Looking back at the last 12 months, I am reminded of what a privilege it is to be the President of an organisation which has been instrumental in helping to shape the development of Australia, from even before we were a nation. In 2017, our Chamber celebrated 190 years of supporting business and enterprise in NSW, a milestone we should all be very proud of.
