Congratulations to Linhart PR, which today was named the 2011 Small Business of the Year by the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce. The award recognizes small businesses with fewer than 100 employees for their outstanding business practices, community involvement, entrepreneurship, sustainability and productivity.
To select finalists, the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce required small businesses to submit an application about their management philosophy and workplace practices. Then, a team of business leaders conducted on-site interviews and visits of each finalist, which included Linhart, blue onion and Lake Arbor Automotive.
Turner PR has added Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole, Four Seasons Resort Whistler and The Brown Palace Hotel to its travel and hospitality clientele. Turner will provide a variety of strategic media relations for the three new clients. The agency also announced it has added Stephanie Panico as account coordinator.
Linhart PR has added Emma Garten, Andrew Peters and Noelle Robillard as account associates. All three started their careers as part of the firm’s JumpStart internship program. Linhart has added 10 team members since January 2010.
Colorado PRSA’s Young Professional Development Committee has started a book club for young PR pros. To kick off the club, we will be reading fashion PR publicist Kelly Cutrone’s If You Have to Cry, Go Outside And Other Things Your Mother Never Told You.
“Known to those in the industry as the founder of People’s Revolution, Cutrone will be remembered to some as the tough boss to Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port on MTV’s The Hills. The book catalogs both her personal and professional successes. Her advice is applicable for those in every business. Helpful tips include: phone calls are better than emails, don’t blog about your job, and go outside to cry.”
The club will meet on the last Tuesday of each month. The first meeting is Tuesday, May 31, at 6 pm at Paris on the Platte. RSVP to email@example.com.
