There’s still plenty of time to give outstanding brand ambassadors, corporate and non-profit spokespeople a gift they’ll never forget by nominating them for The SPOKEies™ between now on Friday, December 22, reports D S Simon Media, founder of the awards, which added that it’s free to sign up and the winners will be announced online in January 2018.
The SPOKEies™ are the public relations industry’s first-ever awards whose mission is to honor exceptional leaders who communicate honestly and authentically on behalf of their respective organizations and brands before anyone else has given them this distinction. There are more than 40 awards in six categories, including 24 for corporate and brand spokespeople and 18 for non-profits.
The judges also represent the best and brightest in the communications business. They include executives with the Better Business Bureau, Twitter, Google, Barron’s, Edelman, Weber-Shandwick and many others.
“In developing these awards, we were surprised to learn that nothing like them exists in any of the spokesperson-driven communications fields,” noted Doug Simon, CEO of D S Simon Media. “Finally, the best spokespeople in brand, corporate and nonprofit communications will get the recognition they deserve.”
Winners will be selected based on their trust and authenticity, plus their ability to engage the audience and cogently articulate their organization’s messages. Nominees or those wishing to nominate someone just need to visit the website and select the appropriate category, then go to the dropdown menu, which includes dozens of sub-categories from financial services and healthcare to sports, fashion and beauty.
Once that’s done, next click on the download guide that will take you step by step on how to enter along with offering suggestions about which supplemental materials to include. The entire process takes about fifteen minutes, you can do it at your leisure and share it with others to get the necessary approvals.
Not only will you be giving worthy contenders a chance to become the first SPOKEie winners ever, their thought leadership will be shared with hundreds of thousands of communications people who follow news on Compro through video content that will be available for them to distribute on their own site.
They will also have the option to participate in web events that will be made available to more than 100,000 people in the communications community for sharing their ideas and tips for why having authentic communications can build a better brand.
