Below is an excerpt of the submission
The Personal Growth Expo was created with the name that reflected my goal. The event started to come to life but everyone requires personal growth on different levels. To develop the concept, I sorted through what I felt was important in life. Things such as finances, business, physical health, direction, mental health, relationships and attitudes.
Innovation in branding was important so by going with-IN I realised that my relationships, my spirituality and my mindset were very personal to me. I kept them under the radar of general discussion and was cautious about who I revealed them to. They were Stealth like and hidden. Health could take on all aspects of health including environmental, physical and mental health. Business and finances could be put under a Wealth category where people can gain personal growth through skill development, techniques, direction or new opportunities. The elements of Stealth, Health and Wealth were born.
I had the concept: To increase your bottom line, increase your personal growth. The tag line was ‘Get your Head right, Get your Body right and Get your Business right’ but the planning was slow. Someone suggested that I do a live video call out on Facebook. Within an instant I had a photographer, professional speaker and an event organiser willing to assist. Now the expo went from ‘I’ to ‘we’ and planning blossomed with new ideas from the team.
Collaboration was our core message in promoting the expo. We supported the exhibitors giving them free videos of their business to share on social media. 40 exhibitors sharing boosted their profiles and ours at the same time, plus we had incentives for the videos who had the most views on line.
Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 100 executives around the world acting as judges in March and April.
“We are very pleased that entries to this program grew by more than 30% this year,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “This growth illustrates how vital innovation is to business growth, and how important being recognized for their innovation is to enterprises throughout the Asia-Pacific region. We extend our warmest congratulations to all of this year’s Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners.”
