Straight of the back of Multicultural Queensland Month, Radio 4EB are absolutely THRILLED to be partnering with Brisbane City Council as the official media partners for ‘The Lord Mayors Multicultural Business Dinner and Awards’.

Held Friday 9 September 2022 at Brisbane City Hall, the event celebrates Brisbane as a city that embraces diversity, innovation and importantly for these awards – economic prosperity. Proceeds from the night support the following years Lord Mayor’s Multicultural Business Scholarship Program. As well as breaking down the awards themselves, throughout this week we will be shining a light on the 9 x Lord Mayor’s Multicultural Awards Business Finalists contending the 3 x award categories

Today it’s to George Sha (Balanz), Huiming Lin (AusLaw Partners) and Jason Le (JRNY Digital) that our eyes turn.

  • George Sha moved to Brisbane from Shenzhen China in 2001, co-founding Balanz in 2014. Now one of Australia’s leading finance broking firms Balanz has placed and managed more than 6 billion dollars of debts to date, with 20 team members and 3 offices across Brisbane, Sydney, and Townsville.   
  • Huiming was born in the city of Wenzhou, China, and completed his degree of Juris Doctor at Bond University in 2016. With legal practice qualifications across 3 countries (Australia, China, and New Zealand) he  founded Auslaw Partners in 2020 and Queensland Chinese Lawyers Association Inc in 2022 to provide a pioneering voice that facilitates cultural diversity in the legal profession and enables equitable access to the law.  
  • Jason Le’s parents migrated from Vietnam to Australia due to extreme poverty and to support the family, started several small businesses. Realising the struggles of running a small business for everyday families Jason established digital marketing agency, JRNY Digital in 2020 to help business owners like his dad get results and transparency from their marketing. The company has since managed millions of dollars and helped dozens of business owners grow.

A huge congratulations to George, Huiming and Jason being 2022 finalists in ‘The Lord Mayors Multicultural Awards for Business’
