Keith Murray, Senior Consultant at Awards IntelligenceIn an increasingly competitive business world, it has never been more important for companies to set themselves apart from their rivals. Winning a prestigious award is not just proof that you’re the best at what you do; it is also an accolade that gives your company a real edge in the marketplace.

The benefits of winning a Stevie Award can super-charge your business—as companies that Awards Intelligence has helped have discovered.

Heaven® Skincare founder and chief executive Deborah Mitchell says winning awards such as Best New Product in The 2012 International Business Awards has given her Shropshire, U.K.-based beauty and skincare company a vital boost, particularly in global markets.

Expanding Into Global Markets
Heaven has been enjoying spectacular growth, expanding into new global markets, and leading the way ahead of other specialist skincare companies. 

Deborah Mitchell is also a two-time winner of Entrepreneur of the Year in the Stevie Awards for Women in Business.  She commented: “Winning these awards has really helped put us on the map, especially in countries where we have been trying to enter the market.  It gives us credibility and shows we are the best at what we do.”

Mitchell used Awards Intelligence to help her company shine against tough global competition.  She stated: “We couldn’t have done this without Awards Intelligence. They not only advised us on which awards to enter but they presented us in the best possible way.” 

Increased Success Rate
