You know it’s award season when the Oscars, Emmys, Grammys and Tonys come out to play. We just love all of the relentless fashion coverage that comes with.
But you don’t really know the thrill of the season until you receive the award yourself.
VSBrooks Advertising has been popping open the bubbly a lot lately – first with the prestigious Beacon Award honor, then being asked to participate in the United Way’s panel discussion for Women’s History Month (http://vsbrooks.blogspot.com/2013/03/united-way-of-miami-dades-womens.html) and now this… The Commonwealth Institute South Florida (TCI) has selected Diana Brooks as one of the Top 50 Women-Led Business Leaders in Florida for the second year in a row.
It pays to participate when organizations send you requests because VSBrooks Advertising made the list after we took part in a TCI/Moore Research survey that looked at the characteristics of woman leaders and the businesses they lead.
The survey found that a majority of women-led organizations (53%) are more optimistic about current economic conditions in Florida, with many expecting continued improvement through 2013. We are positive thinkers! (But we already knew that.)
Diana Brooks, VSBrooks Advertising’s team and the other honored finalists were recognized at the Eighth Annual Women-Led Businesses in Florida Luncheon & Awards Ceremony on Tuesday March 19, 2013, at Jungle Island, Treetop Ballroom, Miami.
Time to break out the red-carpet dress, people.
