Sign Up Free for The SPOKEies and Give the Gift That Keeps on Giving
Christmas is just a little more than two weeks away. If you want to give your clients a gift they won’t forget for all the great work they do all year long, nominate them for a SPOKEies® Award. It’s the first awards to honor the best spokespeople representing brands, non-profits and corporations. You still have until Friday, December 22nd to nominate them for one of 40 awards in six categories.
The SPOKEies® are the public relations industry’s first-ever awards whose mission is to honor outstanding leaders who communicate honestly and authentically on behalf of their respective organizations and brands before anyone else has given them this distinction.
Categories include C-Suite Leader, Most Authentic, Most Engaging and Crisis Management. Additionally, The SPOKEies® will include specific awards in financial services, healthcare, sports, technology, entertainment and start-ups. Social media awards will be selected through a Twitter vote.
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. 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 at spokeies.com 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 SPOKEies® 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.
