Unusual risks receives Westpac Businesses of Tomorrow awards


Unusual risks (the specialist brand of Sapience Financial) was among 200 handpicked companies to be recognised and honoured with the Westpac Business of Tomorrow award on the 7th April 2017.

The Westpac Businesses of Tomorrow program recognises and supports great Australian businesses today, with a clear vision for tomorrow.

To qualify in the final 200, businesses must demonstrate to the judges that they are shaping Australia’s future – in ways big or small. The Businesses of Tomorrow were chosen on their potential to shape Australia’s future. Each selected business demonstrated the following qualities to an exceptional degree:

  • A track record of delivery
  • Clarity of purpose and vision
  • Outstanding value to customers
  • Capability to meet tomorrow’s challenges
  • Adaptability and resilience
  • Contribute beyond the business to the community, industry or the economy

The 200 businesses were independently assessed by Deloitte and chosen by a high profile judging panel. ‘These businesses have demonstrated a clear vision to shape Australia’s economy and have the qualities and potential to help tomorrow’s customers and communities’.

‘The Westpac Businesses of Tomorrow Report provides the evidence base for the economic benefits of a greater focus on business success through leadership. Featuring analysis by Deloitte Access Economics and fresh insights from LinkedIn’s career dataset, it identifies key features of leaders in successful Australian businesses’.
