‘20 Women to Watch in Business’ Program Now Accepting Nominations

Lynden, WA - - Feb 18, 2019 - -
James Obermayer, executive director of The Sales Lead Management Association (SLMA), announced that the organization is accepting nominations for this year’s “20 Women to Watch in Business” recognition program. 

Nominations, accepted until midnight on Monday, April 1, 2019, are for women working in all areas of management for business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) service companies.  Eligible company services include:  Artificial Intelligence (AI), marketing automation software, digital lead generation, direct marketing agencies, traditional branding agencies, enterprise resource planning and customer relationship management software, telemarketing and database companies, and sales lead management firms. This is the eighth year for SLMA’s recognition program.

Only SLMA members (membership is free) are permitted to nominate women leaders.  From those nominations, twenty will be selected as the “SLMA 20 Women to Watch in Business 2019.”   Winners, chosen by a panel of judges, will be announced on Monday, April 15, 2019 at 8 a.m. PST. 

Nominees are judged on their leadership contributions in B2B and B2C service/vendor companies.  Qualifications, such as book and article authorship, board positions, and speaking on behalf of the subjects of sales lead management and marketing ROI, are considered.  This program is not a popularity contest - - it is a judged event.     

Nominations for the “20 Women to Watch in Business 2019” are being accepted here.
