How Winners Benefit

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 CommPRO through video content that will be available for them to distribute on their own site, as well as the opportunity to participate in a live webcast. This 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.

Of course, you will receive a winner’s certificate and logo that can be featured on your website. Your selection as a winner will also be integral to the marketing campaign for the SPOKEies™ for year two. We anticipate winners will be named in mid-January with the webcasts and other supporting events in late January and early February.

We hope you have a winner…or two.
