Women helping Women

I love a great success story about women in business, or women helping women, and that is why I would like to tell you about has been named a finalist in three categories in the 6th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business: Best Canadian Entrepreneur, Most Innovative Company of the Year (up to 2,500 Employees), and Best Overall Company of the Year—Service Businesses (up to 2,500 Employees).

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, and the companies they run—worldwide. More than 1,100 entries were submitted this year for consideration in 54 categories, including Best Executive, Best Entrepreneur, and Best Community Involvement Program. Business professionals from around the world chose the finalists during preliminary judging.

Nicknamed "the Stevies" for the Greek word "crowned," winners will be announced during a gala event at the Marriott Marquis hotel in New York on Friday, November 13. Women executives and entrepreneurs from the U.S.A. and several other countries are expected to attend. The presentations will be broadcast live on radio in the U.S.A. by the Business Talk Radio Network.

"It's a real honor to be a finalist for one Stevie Award, never mind three," says president, Chandra Clarke. "It's been a year of growth at, what with expanding our business and launching a new web site. This type of recognition makes the work seem all the more worthwhile, and motivates us to keep striving towards bigger goals." We recently expanded our Chatham, Ontario headquarters, hiring a number of in-house editors and support staff members. "This community has been really hurt by the economic downturn," said Terence Johnson, our company's vice-president. "I'm very proud of our team and our company, because we've been able to continue growing and creating good jobs. We hope our success will spur on other entrepreneurs."

Members of the Awards' Board of Distinguished Judges and Advisors and their staff will select Stevie Award winners from among the finalists during final judging.

I had the chance to speak with President, Chandra Clarke, recently and she shared some wonderful ideas on marketing and increasing our website traffic so that we can reach even more people with our message.

Thank you Chandra for your work!
