The Telstra Best of Business Awards 2022 Qld Winner for Championing Health – Fuel Your Life 


The Fuel Your Life team has won the 2022 Queensland Telstra Best of Business Award for Championing Health in the community. The winner and finalists of the Championing Health category were selected by Telstra’s expert judging panel and awarded to businesses that are focussed on improving health outcomes with innovative solutions for every Australian.

Telstra Best of Business Awards

Telstra has a long and storied legacy of recognising exceptional Australian businesses. The latest reimagination of their national honours, The Telstra Best of Business Awards, builds on the success and learnings of previous years and celebrates small to medium Australian businesses using innovation and expertise to drive the nation forward. This year’s awards attracted over 24,000 nominations from all around the country.

“We know the past year has been challenging for everyone, particularly small to medium sized businesses. We hope by creating this new program, we will lead a national conversation and shine a light on businesses that are making a meaningful contribution to Australia and provide them with the recognition they deserve.” Said Michael Ackland, the Telstra Consumer and Small Business Group Executive.

All Australian businesses with under 200 employees were invited to nominate across eight categories. This year the award categories were; Building Communities, Championing Health, Embracing Innovation, Promoting Sustainability, Outstanding Growth, Accelerating Women, Indigenous Excellence, and Progressing Australia.

The hard-working Fuel Your Life team has previously won 3x national business awards and been a finalist for many others. Fuel Your Life Managing Director Tyson Tripcony said winning the Championing Health Award this year was extra special for him and his team. He went on to say, “Especially given the tumultuous time we have all had navigating COVID and ensuring our staff and our clients get the highest level of support every step of the way. Since I started the business, I wanted one focused on staff, and if we did that right, I knew they would take care of their clients.”

What’s Next?

Each State Winner will now go on to compete at The National Gala Event, which will be held in Sydney in April. There they’ll announce the National Winners for each category. The Fuel Your Life team would like to extend a big congratulations to all of the other finalists and state winners across all eight categories.

“I am excited to once again be a private practice dietitian company defying the odds, paving new paths, and attempting to lead and inspire others to do the same. Now we are on to the National Telstra Business Awards in April and although we will be a small fish in a much larger pond there, I know our team isn’t out of place. Once Australia opens 100% again, I am sure I will find a special way to celebrate with the team! To everyone who played a part in this success, past and present, thank you for everything you contributed to this success. I am incredibly thankful for all of you.” – Tyson Tripcony.
