Ms O'NEILL (Robertson) (13:50): I rise to acknowledge and celebrate the Central Coast Business Excellence Awards 2012, which were held in my electorate, on the Central Coast of New South Wales, last Saturday night. I want to acknowledge Coast Star Motors and Central Coast Business Review as significant sponsors for this event and a number of other significant partners in our community—New South Wales Trade and Investment, Wyong Shire Council, Bendigo Bank, Print National, Display Power, SV Partners, Apex Insurance Brokers, TAFE, University of Newcastle, Complete Staff Solutions, Gosford City Council and Graphic by Design.

The talent in business acumen on the Central Coast needs to be acknowledged, and I want particularly to name some of the winners: Treehouse Creative; Baltimore Aircoil Australia; Close Financial Group; Naomi Taylor from the Mingara-Indigo Bar; Wyong Regional Chamber of Commerce; Independent Portable Buildings, who were the winners of the overall business prize; E-bis Print and Webstuff.biz; Jason van Genderen and Treehouse Creative, who won another award; ING Direct; Bub's Customs, Trehy Ingold Neate; Independent Portable Buildings; and Lake Haven Shopping Centre. In the categories of sustainability I particularly want to acknowledge Baltimore Aircoil Australia, whose business is growing on the back of the carbon price, which is bringing about massive change in refrigeration.
