Savoir Media Wins International Stevie® Award For Women In Business For Communications Campaign Of The Year

Savoir Media, a strategic communications firm, was recognized for the breadth and depth of the marketing and media program conducted on the issue of childhood obesity.

Belmont, MA – November 17, 2009 – Savoir Media, a strategic communications consulting firm, is pleased to announce that it won an International Stevie Award for Women in Business for Communications Campaign of the Year.

The 2009 Stevie Awards for Women in Business is a global competition that recognizes the accomplishments of outstanding women executives, business owners, and the organizations they run. The awards are produced by the creators of the prestigious American Business AwardsSM.

Savoir Media was recognized for the media and marketing campaign that it executed on behalf of Great Moves!, a pediatric weight management program that was formed in collaboration with the physicians of Children's Hospital Boston. Savoir Media conducted an extensive print, broadcast and online campaign that provided news and information about the dangers of childhood obesity – an epidemic that afflicts more than a third of U.S. children today.

"This award is a tremendous honor, and we wish to thank the judges of the Stevie Awards for recognizing our dedication to this campaign," said Christine Dunn, president and founder of Savoir Media. "Everyone at Savoir Media felt passionate about this media program because of the impact this disease has on the children – and families – afflicted by it. We want to thank Stan Goldstein and his team for the opportunity to work with them on this important issue, and hope that through their efforts, and those of their colleagues, we can someday succeed in reversing the obesity trend."

The program developed by Savoir Media aimed to reach all forms of media ranging from such print publications as Pediatric News and Parents Magazine to broadcast outlets including Chronicle, Boston's award-winning news magazine program on the ABC affiliate WCVB-TV Channel 5. Savoir Media also helped develop a quarterly newsletter entitled, "Building Healthy Lifestyles," that was distributed to pediatricians and some residents in the Greater Boston area, and assisted at trade shows and other public events.

In addition to winning the Communications Campaign of the Year award, Savoir Media was named a finalist for Best Overall Company of the Year – Service Businesses, up to 100 Employees - Advertising, Marketing, and Public Relations. The company's president, Christine Dunn, was also named a finalist for Best Entrepreneur – Service Businesses, Up to 100 Employees - Advertising, Marketing, and Public Relations.

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business are governed by a Board of Distinguished Judges and Advisors that features many leading women entrepreneurs and luminaries in business. Members of the Awards' Board selected Stevie winners from among the finalists. Finalists were chosen by business professionals worldwide during the preliminary judging period.

Stevie Awards were handed out in categories including Best Entrepreneur, Best Executive, Lifetime Achievement, and Women Helping Women at the gala event at New York's Marriott Marquis Hotel on November 13. More than 1,100 entries from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted for consideration.
