Thought Bubble wins Silver Stevie® Award for Business Development

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA February 25, 2017  — Thought Bubble has been awarded a Silver Stevie® Award at the world’s preeminent business awards, the 2017 Stevie Awards for Sales and Customer Service in the Business Development Company Achievement of the Year (Service Industries) category.

Thought Bubble came second to IBM US/Japan, which won Gold for its Silver AI program.

Thought Bubble was recognised for its consistent track record of client success and innovations achieved during 2016. These included:

  • devising service models and solutions to secure major contracts and funding for clients in areas including executive education; health and human services; social and civil infrastructure development; and domestic and family violence response services and support
  • managing national accreditation applications for aged care and disability home care providers
  • leading a significant amount of stakeholder consultation including the development of communication and business development strategies for government departments and global organisations in the infrastructure and health care sectors
  • the early stage development of a proprietary software platform for global business development teams working in the professional services sector.

More than 75 members of several specialized judging committees determined the Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging earlier this month.  Finalists were determined by another 77 judges.

Of winning the award Thought Bubble Managing Director Nyree McKenzie said, “Many of our company’s successes are confidential, so awards such as these are great morale boosters for the team and reaffirms to our clients that we are best practice.

“There’s a lot of satisfaction in helping organisations pivot their processes and services to better align with their customers’ needs, and when they secure a contract, it not only sustains their operations, but their workforces too. One recent state-wide sole contract win has positioned our client as the second largest provider in their segment in Australia.

To service its growing client demand, Thought Bubble delivers 24/7 service from a team of consultants based in Australia, the UK and Europe. This is the sixth award for Thought Bubble. In 2016 Thought Bubble was awarded Gold for the same category, and a Gold for Business Development Executive of the Year. The same year Thought Bubble and its Managing Director won a Gold and two Silvers at the Stevie Awards for Women in Business.
