The Stevie® Awards, organizers of the world’s premier business awards programs, announced today that Thought Leadership Leverage (TLL), a consultancy that helps individual experts and organizations take their ideas to scale through thought leadership, will sponsor its awards programs.
TLL will work with the Stevie Awards team to create and promote categories related to thought leadership in its eight national and international awards programs. The first fruit of the partnership is a new category in The 18th International Business Awards® for communications or public relations campaigns that create or further the thought leadership credentials or reputation of an individual or organization. TLL will next help create a number of categories for the 18th Stevie Awards for Women in Business, which will begin accepting nominations in May.
“We are very pleased that Thought Leadership Leverage has agreed to partner with the Stevie Awards to create new categories in our competitions as recognition of achievement in thought leadership that did not exist in any of our programs thus far,” said Maggie Gallagher, Stevie Awards president. “We think the addition of thought leadership-related categories will serve to bring attention to worthy achievements in thought leadership generation, exposition, and promotion.”
TLL CEO and founder Peter Winick thinks the partnership with the Stevies will be a win for his firm’s clients. “There is no prominent international awards program to recognize individual and team achievement in organizational thought leadership – certainly nothing of the prominence of the Stevie Awards. The Stevies will help us to bring a new level of recognition to the achievements of our clients and other organizations and individuals.”
