Aufruf für Einsendungen für die erstmals vergebenen Stevie Awards in Deutschland

Posted by Michael Gallagher on Mon, Aug 18, 2014 @ 11:36 AM

Jüngstes Stevie-Awards-Programm zur Würdigung der „Best in Business“ in Deutschland; keine Teilnahmegebühren für Einsendungen bis zum 30. September

Der Veranstalter des weltweit führenden Business-Awards-Programms gab heute bekannt, dass das neueste Programm - die German Stevie Awards - in Deutschland angesiedelt wird. Nominierungen von Firmen, die ihre Geschäfte in Deutschland betreiben, sind ab sofort unter www.StevieAwards.com/Deutschland möglich.

Die Stevie® Awards gelten weithin als weltweit renommierteste Wirtschaftspreise, die seit 12 Jahren in Programmen wie The International Business Awards und The American Business Awards vergeben werden. Jedes Jahr werden mehr als 8.000 Preisträger von Unternehmen aus mehr als 60 Ländern für die Stevie Awards nominiert.

GSA logotypeDie Stevie Awards in Deutschland sind eines von nur zwei nationalen Stevie-Awards-Programmen nach den zwölf Jahre alten American Business Awards. „Deutschland ist ein riesiger, dynamischer Wirtschaftsraum mit vielen ausgezeichneten Unternehmen in einer breit gefächerten Branchenvielfalt“, erklärte Michael Gallagher, President und Gründer der Stevie Awards. „Es ist seit langem unser Ziel, ein weiteres nationales Stevies-Programm in einer bedeutenden Wirtschaftswelt einzurichten, und Deutschland ist die ideale Wahl, da es die größte europäische Wirtschaft und nach BSP gemessen die fünftgrößte Wirtschaft der Welt ist.“

Die Stevie-Awards-Trophäen werden vom selben Hersteller produziert, der auch die Oscars und weitere internationale Preise herstellt, und gehören zu den begehrtesten Auszeichnungen der Welt.

Für die Stevie Awards in Deutschland werden Nominierungen aus allen Organisationen, die in Deutschland tätig sind, angenommen - groß oder klein, gewerblich oder gemeinnützig, in öffentlicher oder privater Hand. Zur Auswahl stehen zahlreiche Kategorien, darunter

Zur Feier der erstmaligen Verleihung der Awards in Deutschland wird für Nominierungen, die innerhalb der Frühanmeldefrist bis 30. September eingereicht werden, keine Teilnahmegebühr erhoben. Ab 1. Oktober beträgt die Teilnahmegebühr für Nominierungen bis zum zweiten Einsendeschluss am 5. November nur 99 Euro. Für Nominierungen, die nach dem 5. November bis zum endgültigen Einsendeschluss am 10. Dezember eingehen, wird die Standard-Teilnahmegebühr von bis zu 400 Euro je Einsendung erhoben.

Die Prüfung der Einsendungen erfolgt in zwei Runden. In der ersten Runde werden die Gewinner der Gold-, Silber- und Bronze-Stevie-Awards in jeder Kategorie ermittelt. Diese Preisträger werden am 23. Februar bekanntgegeben. Die Gewinner der Gold Stevie Awards gehen dann in eine zweite Runde, wo der Gewinner des Grand Stevie Award der jeweiligen Kategoriegruppen ermittelt wird. Die Preisträger der Gold-, Silber- und Bronze-Stevies werden Ende März im Rahmen einer Galaveranstaltung in Deutschland geehrt, bei der auch die Grand Stevie Awards verliehen werden.

Die Preisjurys der Stevie Awards in Deutschland werden demnächst zusammengestellt. Interessierte, die am Beurteilungsverfahren teilnehmen möchten, können sich ebenfalls unter http://www.StevieAwards.com/Deutschland anmelden. An den Stevie-Awards-Wettbewerben nehmen im typischen Fall mehr als 200 Führungskräfte als Preisrichter teil.

Im Lauf der Jahre sind schon zahlreiche deutsche Firmen in den Stevie-Awards-Programmen ausgezeichnet worden, darunter beispielsweise die Adidas-Gruppe, Bertelsmann AG, DP DHL, Lufthansa und Siemens AG. „Mit den Stevie Awards in Deutschland sind wir dann in der Lage, die Leistungen von wesentlich mehr deutschen Unternehmen und Führungskräften zu würdigen“, so Gallagher weiter.

Uwe Krummenoehler, CEO der AVL Emission Test Systems GmbH in Neuss, Gewinner eines Bronze Stevie Award der Kategorie International Business Awards 2013, sagte: „Die Auszeichnung mit einem Stevie Award zeigt, dass wir in vieler Hinsicht auf dem richtigen Weg sind. Unsere gute Leistung wurde von zahlreichen hochrangigen Führungskräften bestätigt und das ist für unser Geschäftsleitungsteam und unsere Mitarbeiter von großer Bedeutung.“

Laut Gallagher gibt es viele Gründe, warum sich Unternehmen an den Stevie-Awards-Programmen beteiligen, darunter in erster Linie die markenfördernden Vorteile einer bedeutenden nationalen oder internationalen Auszeichnung, die positive Einstellung der Mitarbeiter, wenn sie für Auszeichnungen nominiert werden, und die Networking-Möglichkeiten mit anderen Führungskräften bei den jährlichen Awards-Galaveranstaltungen.

What’s So Great About Singapore? Stevie® Awards Winner Margaret Manning Explains

Posted by Michael Gallagher on Thu, Feb 20, 2014 @ 02:48 PM

Margaret Manning is the CEO of Reading Room, a digital communications agency. Reading Room Singapore won three Gold Stevie® Awards in The 2013 International Business Awards: Advertising/Design Agency of the Year; Fastest-Growing Company of the Year (Asia, Australia, and New Zealand); and Margaret herself, now based in Singapore, was named Executive of the Year - Advertising, Marketing & Public Relations (Entries to The 2014 International Business Awards are now being accepted, get your Entry Kit here.)

We talked with Margaret her about her company, her move to Singapore, and her thoughts on the launch of the Asia-Pacific Stevie® Awards.

Margaret ManningOver the last fifteen years, Margaret Manning and her team have grown Reading Room into a global, award-winning consultancy, with offices in London, Manchester, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Brisbane, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Reading Room is the UK’s top digital agency (Design Week Top 100) and a global top ten digital agency working with clients such as the Monetary Authority of Singapore, Skoda, Philips Healthcare, ASEAN, and UNHCR.

Since January 2012 Margaret has led Reading Room through a period of very high growth in all territories, but particularly in Asia and Australia. Margaret recognized that the downturn in Europe had the potential to be long lasting and therefore looked overseas and particularly towards the Asia-Pacific for growth opportunities.

Why Singapore?

Margaret explained what brought her to Singapore. “Our arrival in Singapore in 2011 was actually off the back of a personal invitation from the Singapore Government for me to mentor young entrepreneurs in the start-up tech scene.

“At the time, Reading Room had two offices in the UK and three in Australia. I knew that to grow the company we had to work in the APAC market, we just weren’t sure where. I landed in Singapore and instantly fell in love. It had a market that was coming to its digital maturity and had realized the importance of integrated digital strategy.

“We conducted a thorough market and competitor analysis and found a gap in the market that allowed us to step in and provide consultancy services that were not being offered by anyone else. In addition, we found that our targeted sectors were looking towards the UK and Australia as thought leaders in our space, providing us with powerful credentials.

“Within four weeks, we had registered our company and rented a small, converted shop space in Chinatown.  We started out with three staff members. Now we have over 50 staff and—of course—a much bigger office, although still in Chinatown, I’m pleased to say.”

Significant Growth

We asked Margaret how Reading Room’s success in the Stevie® Awards had affected her business.  Her initial response was: “Wow, where does one start?”  On reflection, she continued: “First of all, we won the awards for our clients. Not only were they greatly appreciated by our clients—which in consequence provided us with repeat business—but also they made a great story to tell in all of our communications.”  

Reading Room received its own accolades in The 2013 International Business Awards.  Margaret told us how these have provided opportunities for her company in new regions as word of its success has traveled beyond its sectors of operation.

As she puts it: “The exposure that these awards have given us has gone beyond our expectations. I am, of course, most proud of my personal awards, particularly for Executive of the Year in The 2013 International Business Awards. This has literally catapulted my own standing within the business community, and has contributed significantly to our growth in Asia.”

Impact of New Awards

With the launch of the new Asia-Pacific Stevie® Awards in 2014, we asked Margaret for her business perspective on what these Awards will mean to her.  She told us:It’s great to see the Stevie® Awards localized for the APAC market, and we’re going to see some fierce contenders. There is so much opportunity in the Asia-Pacific region, and I believe that in 2014 we’re going to see the most fierce competition ever!”

Margaret made Singapore her global operation headquarters tasked with expanding Reading Room in the APAC region, which resulted in two more office openings in Hong Kong and Melbourne, each servicing different sectors and local clients.

Singapore has had a huge amount of growth since, doubling from 25 to 50 people since 2012. It is currently one of the fastest-growing digital agencies in Singapore. Since its foundation in 2011 Margaret has led the Singapore office to achieve 300% turnover growth in the APAC region.

Reading Room Singapore now successfully supplies consultancy services to every Singapore government agency and Margaret has been personally selected by the Infocomm Development Authority to mentor Government bodies on user experience to citizens.

A Springboard Into Asia

Margaret has advice for companies thinking of doing business in Singapore: “We find that a lot of businesses look to Singapore as a springboard into Asia, which it is—but remember, it’s much more than that: It is a vibrant, exciting society filled with opportunity; with great people; terrific food; and fantastic weather—so long as you don’t mind humidity.

“There is opportunity here, but to make the most of that opportunity you have to work hard within the Singaporean community.”

Concludes Margaret: “It’s a great testament to the Stevie Award team that they recognize the impact that this region is currently having on global business.”

Inspiration

Margaret tells us that it’s a strong coffee that helps her to hit the ground running in the morning, but that her inspiration comes from working in an innovative sector where there is constant change and challenge.   “It is impossible to be bored, and I work with an amazing bunch of people that feel more like family than work colleagues.”

Margaret has one weakness, however:  “Honestly … Candy Crush. Ok, so it’s not for business purposes, but it allows me to take two minutes here and there and just relax!”

About Margaret Manning
Margaret Manning is founder and CEO of Reading Room, a Top 10 Global Agency (IMA awards 2012) with offices in the UK, Australia, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

Margaret won a Gold Stevie® for Female Entrepreneur of the Year at the 2012 Stevie® Awards for Women in Business; and the Best CIO Awards held in Singapore chose her for the top prize in Women in Leadership. The London Observer named Margaret one of the top 50 media people to watch in Courvoisier The Future 500.

Margaret loves her work, adores her family, and feels very lucky to have such a great team around her.

한국의 하나로애드컴, 그들의 성공에 어떻게 스티비상을 활용했는가

Posted by Michael Gallagher on Mon, Jan 20, 2014 @ 09:51 AM

대한민국 서울의 광고 및 홍보 디자인 전문기업인 하나로애드컴의 손정희 대표가 2013 국제 비즈니스 대상에서 크리에이티브상부문 올해의 크리에이티브 경영자 금상을 수상했다. 그녀에게 스티비상 수상의 경험과 2014년 회사의 목표에 대해 물어보았다.

“하나로애드컴은 2015년에 맞이하게 될 창립 20주년을 위해, 2014년 동안 준비할 것입니다.” 손대표는 말했다. “이것은 높은 질의 홍보마케팅 활동을 제공하고 고객들을 대신해서 강력히 메시지를 전달하고자 했던 20년의 노력이 성공했다는 뜻이며, 저희에게 매우 중요한 기념일입니다. 그래서 올해는 그간 20년의 활동들을 돌아보고 더 새롭고 위대한 성장을 준비하는 해가 될 것입니다.”

새로운 시장 개척
2014년의 또 다른 중요한 목표는 해외시장의 개척이다. “이미 몇 군데의 해외 고객이 있습니다.” 손대표는 설명했다. “명실상부한 세계적인 네트워크를 가진 회사가 되기 위해 마케팅을 강화할 것입니다. 한국에서 마케팅을 위한 광고나 홍보 파트너를 찾는다면, 하나로애드컴을 찾아주길 바랍니다! 우리의 목표는 한국에서 비즈니스 마케팅을 위한 최고의 창조적 파트너가 되는 것입니다.”

새로운 비즈니스 획득
손대표에 따르면 지난 몇 년 동안 스티비상에서 여러 차례 수상한 것이 하나로애드컴에 중대한 영향을 끼쳤다고 한다. “국제 비즈니스 대상은 한국에서 높이 평가되는 대회로, 수상하는 것은 하나로의 발전에 큰 공헌을 했습니다. 저희 팀의 자긍심에 긍정적인 영향력을 미쳤을 뿐만 아니라, 고객들과 함께 명예를 공유하도록 했습니다.”
“스티비상은 회사의 업무에 대한 객관적인 평가를 제공하고, 이것은 저희가 새로운 비즈니스를 수주하는데 분명한 도움을 주었습니다. 이 말도 추가해야겠네요. 트로피들이 저희 명예의 벽을 멋지게 채워주고 있다는 것을요!”

아시아-태평양 스티비상
우리는 손대표에게 어떻게 새로운 아시아-태평양 스티비상이 하나로애드컴의 성공에 공헌할 수 있다고 느꼈는지 질문했다. “더 많은 스티비상을 수상할수록 더 많은 고객층이 증가합니다. 특히 공공기관은 훌륭한 경영의 지표로서 스티비상을 바라봅니다. 그리고 국제대회에서 지난 7년 동안 지속적으로 수상한 하나로애드컴의 능력은 신뢰성을 말해줍니다.”
손대표는 또 말했다. “또한 다른 나라들에서 개최되는 국제 비즈니스 대상 시상식에 참가할 때마다 그 나라의 문화와 특성을 공부하는 좋은 기회가 됩니다. 이와 같은 경험은 다른 나라 회사들과의 업무적 관계를 향상시키는 중요한 데이터를 제공합니다.”

일에 대한 열정
손대표는 성공적인 마케팅 경영자일 뿐만 아니라, 소셜 미디어 매니아이기도 하다. “저는 매일 페이스북을 점검하여 댓글을 달기도 하고 실시간으로 대화하기도 합니다.” 그녀는 또한 올빼미형 이다. “저는 밤에 많은 일을 합니다. 잠자리에 들기 전에 아침에 해야 하는 많은 일들을 처리하지요. 새벽 2시에 잠드는 것이 오랜 습관입니다.” 그녀는 건강한 식단의 식사를 신뢰한다. “저는 매일 아침 건강에 좋은 식사를 합니다. 제게 활력을 주기 때문이지요.”

손대표의 결론이다. “저에게 영감을 주는 원천은 바로 일에 대한 열정입니다. 미래를 위해 더 높은 기준을 세우는 것은 우리가 직면하게 되는 어려움에도 불구하고 앞으로 나아가도록 용기를 줍니다. 사무실에 있는 스티비상을 보면서 우리가 성공할 수 있고 목표들을 성취할 수 있다고 상기합니다.”

아시아-태평양 스티비상출품 마감일이 2월 19일입니다. 이 상은 아시아-태평양 지역 22개 나라들의 모든 조직이 출품할 수 있습니다. 세계 모든 조직들이 출품 가능한 국제 비즈니스 대상의 조기 출품 마감일은 4월 16일입니다.

손정희 대표에 대하여
손정희 대표는 IBA에서 7년간 연속적으로 상을 받은 창립 19년 된 회사의 CEO다. ‘올해의 창조경영인’ 등의 개인 부문의 상을 6년 동안 잇달아 수상했다. 15년째 주경야독하여 광고홍보, 영어, 사회복지, 시각디자인, 부동산학 등의 분야에서 전문적인 지식과 학위를 습득했다. 최근에는 정부 기관이나 협회의 홍보 및 디자인 자문위원으로 활동하고 있다.

하나로애드컴에 대하여
하나로애드컴은 다양한 홍보툴의 창의적인 제작을 통해 조직의 마케팅 활동을 돕는 전문기업이다. 브로슈어, 기업사보, 브랜드 개발, 커뮤니케이션 솔루션과 소셜 미디어 등을 전문영역으로 하고 있다. 하나로애드컴은 국제 비즈니스 대상(IBA)에서 7년간 연속적으로 수상한 한국에서도 몇 안 되는 회사이며, 여러 국내 수상을 통해서도 인정받고 있다. 하나로애드컴의 주요 고객은 국내 정부기관, 공공기관, 대기업들이고, 해외의 정부기관, 글로벌 기업과도 파트너십을 유지하고 있다. 더 많은 정보를 위한 웹사이트 www.hanaroad.com
