IBM and listening partner Converseon recognized at the 2010 SAMMY Awards!

IBM and listening partner Converseon recognized at the 2010 SAMMY Awards

Last week Converseon was pleased to have been recognized as a finalist for Social Agency of the year in the SAMMY Awards (we won the inaugural award for Best Social Media Agency last year, so were understandably underdogs to win it two years in a row).    It’s testament to our hard work to continue to evolve our solutions, fully integrating social listening, operational consulting and activation for an end to end social approach.   The recognition was in part due to our very rapid growth (110% YOY), addition of top clients, the evolution of our technologies (including leadership recognition in Listening Category), the maturation of our strategic management consulting and international expansion.

Of course, the real judgment is based on the company we keep and the results we deliver to clients.   Thus, we were especially pleased to win the SAMMY recognizing our work with IBM for Best Socialized Business.

“We thought that the SAMMY for Best Social Business should go to the most forward-thinking company that uses social media to build their company culture and brand, and make listening a core competency,” said Nick Friese, CEO and founder of DIGIDAY, the organizer of the SAMMY Awards. “IBM’s C.O.R.E. approach is an innovative and exemplary approach for social intelligence and this recognition demonstrates the importance of listening in social engagement.”

We thank IBM and our team for their dedicated hard work in making social intelligence actionable.   It’s one thing to provide pretty charts on what social strategies should look like in large enterprises, but quite another thing to actually be able to make it happen.  We are only as successful as our clients, so a recognition of effective social intelligence and media in action is the real reward.
