This has been a full-week at White Book Agency! Actually, a very full month and we’re so grateful! We’re going to share some highlights from this fantastic month…here goes!
We launched our new website the week of April 9th…in the middle of the night (like all website launches go) and…voila! New digs! We hope you like them! We’ve added some new services, plus we’re launching a new Happy Hour series next month! Be sure to visit us often for latest happenings and sign up for e-mail updates.
In other cool news, last month ended with the Gasparilla International Film Festival and the 6th annual event earned itself a mention in the Hollywood Reporter, and Marvelless client Mark Kamp held his book launch party for Opportunity Rocks! in Cape Girardeau, MO. Plus our friend Shaun C. Robinson, CEO of Strong College Students was nominated for Black Enterprise magazine’s Small Business Awards 2012!
Speaking of nominations, I (Nancy) had the honor of being nominated for the Biz Bash Reader’s Choice Awards in the PR Professional of the Year category. It was really cool to be in the running with such dynamic industry talent! Many congrats to Mabel De Beunza of Fontainebleau Miami Beach who won in the PR Professional category and Alyssa Rhoads of Tampa Bay Business Journal who won Corporate Event Planner of the Year! And also, Monica Varner of Elan Event Studio, Event Producer of the Year and Brooke Palmer of RSBP Events, Social Event Planner of the Year who repped the Bay area as finalists! Kaidy and I headed down to Ft. Lauderdale on April 18 for the Biz Bash conference and to enjoy the event festivities.
We attended an innovation meeting hosted by 83 Degrees Media, Tucker Hall and the Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce, and within hours one of the many ideas that were discussed was launched! Check out 1,000 Small Businesses in the Bay by clicking here. You’ll recognize number 28.
This cool week ended with an opportunity to hang out with the team at one of the coolest women-owned companies on the planet, Rhonda Shear Intimates and Shear Enterprises. I had the pleasure of introducing Rhonda at the Working Women of Tampa Bay’s first conference event on April 20.
That weekend I made the trip to the Sustainatopia Honors 2012 conference and awards where Kimberly Hendrix of khendrix was featured. It was inspiring to hear from social impact experts and influencers, along with sustainable companies that truly care about the current and future condition of our planet, environmentally and socially.
The same night our client/friends at Modfire were featured on DIY Network’s Yard Crashers. Plus an exclusive deal was signed this week – we can’t wait to announce AND they’re also featured in Dwell Magazine’s Outdoor, Special Edition 2012 (p. 104). Awesomeness!
And you know how some experiences just get you pumped and you want to do more, do better, be strong and maybe go a little hardcore? Well, that’s what Fuse Pilates’s exclusive preview of their method was like on Wednesday, April 25 at Exhale Spa in the Gansevoort Meatpacking District in NYC.
A select number of individuals were invited to experience the Fuse Pilates method, its first official debut in the Concrete Jungle. Media invitees from SELF, Whole Living and MSN’s Fitbie were in attendance, along with bloggers and other special invited guests.
Take a peak:
The event also included fabulous swag from: Hint Water, Twin Cottage Industries, Good Earth Tea, One Bar, Naked Calories by Mira Calton, Nutrience and Wonderful Almonds and Pistachios.
And finally, Kaidy and I ended this week at the swank Tampa Bay Metro’s Summer With Style event at Neiman Marcus, where there was divine Chocolates by Michelle and cute kids who were beneficiaries of The Children’s Dream Fund. Those wonderful children were really full of life, love and inspiration! And they did an excellent job of getting everyone to fork over some dough…White Book cheerfully included!
We can’t wait to see the greatness next month brings and are grateful for the cool happenings this month!
How have you found yourself grateful and inspired this week/month?
