April White has been named the winner of a gold Stevie® Award in the Most Innovative Woman of the Year – Advertising, Marketing & Public Relations category in the 19th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business.
The Stevie® Awards are the world’s premier business awards. They were created in 2002 to honor and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and working professionals worldwide. In short order, the Stevie has become one of the world’s most coveted prizes.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards were presented to winners Friday night during a gala event attended by nominees and their guests at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event was broadcast via Livestream.
“When I started Trust Relations, I wanted to build the agency I wish existed—one that would leave the toxic agency culture behind, embrace inclusivity whole heartedly and curate the best teams for clients by tapping into a remote workforce,” White said. “It’s a true honor to be recognized for something that began four years ago as a dream, a prayer and a really bad Wix website—and it would not have been possible without the incredible team at Trust Relations that believed in this vision and made a reality.”
This is the first time White has been named a winner in The Stevie Awards for Women in Business. She was nominated by her colleagues for her leadership and vision that inspired Trust Relations, the first fully remote PR and integrated marketing agency that bypasses the traditional agency model by matching clients with industry experts across the globe and offering a full suite of PR and marketing services to deliver a 360-degree solution. The agency’s disruptive approach also includes facilitating a proprietary “Trust Analysis” to align clients’ storytelling with their “story-doing,” to ensure they “do what they say before they say what they do.”
More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 100 categories. Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 200 business professionals around the world, working on eight juries.
