Saturday morning, I received a text from a close friend asking me if I had seen the Vancouver Sun today, as there was a full page on the YWCA Women of Distinction Award nominees. (Just goes to show you the power of Next Marketing Agency’s brand marketing program BRAND CHATTER™!) So I went out and bought one and let’s put it this way, it’s been a LONG time since I bought a paper. My son was surprised that content wasn’t free like it is online.
The full page turned out to be a print advertisement showcasing the 2012 YWCA Women of Distinction Award nominees and their bios for each different category. This year, I was nominated under the Business and The Professions category. I cannot express enough how honoured I feel to be nominated for such an award. It’s pretty cool that I was in amazing company as well.
Recognized nationally as one of Canada’s most prestigious awards for women, the Women of Distinction Awards honours women whose outstanding achievements contribute to the well-being and future of our community. The Awards also honours businesses and organizations that support the wellness and diverse needs of their employees. – The YWCA Metro Vancouver
Reading about the other nominees’ bios from this advertisement as well as other media articles, I am getting super excited to personally meet and connect with all of these amazing women at the Women of Distinction Awards on May 24th, 2012.
