It’s time that we recognize the importance of the spokesperson’s role in achieving an organization’s objectives through authentic, effective and transparent communications. These awards will honor spokespeople from brands, corporations and non-profits based on their ability to achieve organizational goals, creativity, trust and authenticity. The SPOKEies™ have engaged with Twitter for a social media award winner to be selected through that platform.

Finally the best spokespeople in brand, corporate and non-profit communications get the credit they deserve.
