Purpol Marketing’s Stevie Awards

Denise O’Leary MBE, Founder of Purpol Marketing, said, “To be awarded as a seven-times winner by the most prestigious awards for business development and sales in the world is both humbling and amazing.

“To gain recognition in Business Development, our core area is incredible, but we were thrilled to also be recognised within the Leadership or Management Training Practice and Best Use of Thought Leadership in Business Development categories as well. To be identified in the same categories as IBM and ServiceNow amongst others is just phenomenal.”

One of the judges commented, “Very impressive initiative. Especially during Covid and the world in a turbulent state; youth was very hopeless for the future. Such initiatives proved that there is light at the end of the tunnel. This initiative can well extent to cover companies around the globe to find a good match of interns with the technology.”

Stevie Awards President Maggie Miller, added, “The nominations we received for the 2023 competition illustrate that business development, customer service, and sales professionals worldwide, in all sorts of organizations, have continued to innovate, thrive, and meet customer expectations.”
