I was asked not long ago what winning a Summit Award meant to me and to my organization. It didn’t take me long to answer. And my answer was confirmed again last Friday at the 2011 Blue Ridge Chapter, PRSA Summit Awards Gala.
Summit Awards are about excellent clients: clients who have a vision and a strong determination to make their vision a reality. ND&P is blessed to work with and collaborate with dozens of such clients. They believe in strategic, effective, creative communication. They have their eye on business goals, without a doubt. But they genuinely plan for their communication to have a positive effect on – and honestly engage – their audiences.
On Friday our clients, Carilion Clinic, Downtown Roanoke, Inc., AnMed Health and Lifestyle Spirits, brought home 12 Summit Awards – more than half of them Gold Awards, the highest honor.
I was happy for the ND&P teams who work so hard. But I was even happier for our clients.
