Angela Vithoulkas is an award winning entrepreneur, professional speaker, media commentator and somehow found the time to serve 10 years as a twice elected  Independent City of Sydney Councillor. She has been featured right across most print and broadcast media platforms including the Sydney Morning Herald, The Daily Telegraph, The Australian Financial Review, ABC The Drum, The Today Show, Sky News Australia, ABC News, Sky News Business, SBS, Studio 10, Sunrise, 2UE, 2GB.

Angela is a natural connector who can engage an audience of any size with her warm and enigmatic presence. As an award winning entrepreneur and small business leader, she is in demand to speak on topics including customer service, customer experience, women in business, entrepreneurship, staying competitive in retail, leadership and people and culture. Her own business journey is entertaining and powerful, and one that inspires and empowers audiences of all types.

Her success as a business operator has been recognised with high profile awards including being named the City of Sydney Business of the Year, City of Sydney Café of the Year, NSW Entrepreneur of the Year and 2007 Telstra Women’s Business Owner of the Year. In 2015 she was named one of Australia’s Top 50 Most Influential Women Entrepreneurs and in 2017 she was named as one of Australia’s Top 9 Influential Female Entrepreneurs.

Angela has been in small business for more than thirty years, and was ‘born’ into the hospitality business, catching her first shoplifter at the age of three. She has gone on to own, operate and sell close to 30 businesses, naming her mother, Chris, as her biggest influence and inspiration. Through the wins and disappointments, her path has been fuelled by self-belief, ambition and the motivation of her parents’ achievements after migrating to Australia.

Driven to empower and educate other small business owners to follow a greater path, Vithoulkas founded Eagle Waves Radio in 2013, Australia’s first digital radio station dedicated to small business. The name is symbolic of Angela’s vision to give small businesses the ‘wings’ to ensure that they never fly under the radar.

As an elected politician for over a decade, Angela has fearlessly debated heated subjects and gone head to head with seasoned political leaders.

In 2020, at the very beginning of the global pandemic Angela collaborated with the SME Association of Australia and launched SME TV, hosting a digital channel interview style format of subject matter experts.
