Sam @ Orbe Telstra Business Women’s Awards Finalist!


We’re all for recognising kick-ass business women – especially when they are our dear friends! The finalists have been announced for the Telstra South Australian Business Women’s Awards 2016 and we are bursting with excitement that Sam James-Cockayne from Orbe North Adelaide has been hand-picked as one of the 3 finalists for the Young Business Women’s Award. 

The winner will be announced on the night of the Gala Dinner at Adelaide Oval on September 30, 2016 and we can’t wait!

The Telstra Business Women’s Awards have become an integral part of the Australian business calendar, celebrating the achievements of remarkable women around the country. Past winners include many of Australia’s most talented and inspiring business leaders so Sam’s in some good company.

“The Telstra Businesswomen of the Year Awards are held in such high esteem, it’s an absolute thrill and it’s so incredibly rewarding to be selected as a finalist. I am extremely proud of all the creative awards I have won, as it means I am amongst the cutting edge in the field of hairdressing – but it’s a complete honour and a dream come true to now be recognised for professional excellence as one of SA’s Top businesswomen”.  says Sam.

It’s been a stellar year for Sam and her team at Orbe, winning this year’s National Visionary Hairdresser Award, Making national finalist in AHIA Salon Newcomer Business of the Year and most recently, winning the public voted – Adelaide’s Best Hair & Beauty Salon, in Adelaide’s prestigious 2016 City Awards.

So here’s to extraordinary women in South Australia! Sam, we wish you the best of luck.
