“Small to medium enterprises form the backbone of Australia’s economy, and it’s important Suncorp Bank continues to demonstrate our ongoing support for these resilient entrepreneurs,” Mr Harper said.

The competition challenges small business owners to submit their top tip for running a small business in 100 words or less.

The first winner, awarded by a judging panel made up of Suncorp Bank CEO David Foster, Founder of Flying Solo Robert Gerrish and Quest Newspapers Events Manager Simone-Lee Givney, is business owner Nikki White.

Ms White runs a business called The Heart Of which is dedicated to helping other small business owners implement a more streamlined business approach through expert advice, strategies and recommendations.

Ms White’s winning business tip entry was to start documenting systems and procedures in your business. “Procedures are the tasks you conduct every day in your business without thinking about them; to get a great procedures manual, all you need to do is identify these tasks, record them and review them to make sure they are the most efficient they can be. Having procedures in your business allows you to have more time and manage your staff more effectively,” White said.

Ms White said winning the award was recognition of her passion to encourage small business owners to implement procedures and systems into their businesses. “Winning the Helping Hand grant really goes to show that the judges, all highly-respected business professionals, agree that having procedures in place is an essential part of small business success.”

Not only does White provide mentoring to small business owners, she has just released an information product, ProcedureAssist, which educates time poor business owners (via online videos) on how to get started with procedures in their business. Her product also includes a procedures manual template, which is a great start to any business owner looking to set up procedures in the simplest way possible.

Suncorp Bank Executive Manager Business Lending Products Mark Harper said Suncorp Bank’s “5 Grand Helping Hand” grants were a fantastic opportunity to recognise and reward small business owners for their hard work.

“Small to medium enterprises form the backbone of Australia’s economy, and it’s important Suncorp Bank continues to demonstrate our ongoing support for these resilient entrepreneurs,” Mr Harper said.
