Yvette Adams, director of award winning local creative agency, The Creative Collective on the Sunshine Coast has been announced as the recently appointed position of the International Stevie Awards Australia/New Zealand representative having attended the Stevie Awards for Women in Business as a finalist in New York last November and acquainting the CEO, Michael Gallagher.
The Stevie Awards are the world’s premier business awards competitions and feature four major awards in all – the American Business Awards, the Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service, the Stevie Awards for Women in Business and The International Business Awards.
Beginning with The American Business Awards in 2002, The International Business Awards in 2003, The Stevie Awards for Women in Business in 2004, and the Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service in 2006 the organisation aims to raise the profile of exemplary companies and individuals among the press, the business community, and the general public.
“Going to New York was a magical experience and I made sure I networked my little heart out, both prior to going online using mediums such as Facebook and Linkedin.com and of course while I was there. This included introducing myself to the CEO of the awards, Michael Gallagher where we discussed the possibility of me assisting him to grow the profile of the awards in the the Australia/New Zealand region. After a few emails on my return we worked things out and I’m now very proud to be assisting other enterprising Australians and New Zealanders go through the process I did last year,” says Adams, 32-year-old who is also a mother of two.
