ASPIRE WINS BRONZE STEVIE® AWARD IN 2013 STEVIE AWARDS FOR WOMEN IN BUSINESS

Winners Announced at Event in New York City

[Phoenix, AZ] – November 13, 2013 – Aspire has been awarded a Bronze Stevie® Award in the “Most Innovative” category in the 10th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business.

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business are the world’s top honors for female entrepreneurs, executives, employees, and the organizations they run.  All individuals and organizations worldwide are eligible to submit nominations—public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. The 2013 awards received entries from 18 nations and territories. Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 240 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process this year.

More than 1,200 nominations from organizations of all sizes globally and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Entrepreneur of the Year, Executive of the Year, Company of the Year, Mentor of the Year, Women Helping Women, and Communications Campaign of the Year, among others.

Aspire ran under the platform “Innovation of the Human Element.” While many people believe innovation to be solely about technological advances, Aspire recognized that true innovation comes from people. Aspire has developed proven methods to draw out the potential of people within organizations in order to ignite change and drive results.

Aspire has created an arsenal of tools to do just that, ranging from weekly Tips on Leadership that inspire leaders to programming that helps organizations keep learning alive long after a training session has ended.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards were presented to winners during a sold-out event at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City.

Founder and Chief Inspirational Officer, Renie Cavallari, had this to say about the Stevie win: “We are positively honored to be a Bronze winner for Innovation at this year’s Stevie Awards. This is our 9th year being honored by the Stevie board, and we look forward to sharing more of our vision that a company’s greatest asset is their PEOPLE, first and foremost. The Human Element is alive within every organization we work with, and to be able to tap into it and bring it to life is what makes our work so fulfilling.”
