Queensland’s The Audacious Agency wins a Grand Stevie® at the International Stevie® Awards for Women in Business in Las Vegas.

Annette Densham and Lauren Clemett of The Audacious Agency (TAA) scored a significant victory at the 19th Stevie Awards for Women in Business this month. At a gala event in Las Vegas, they received the top Grand Stevie® trophy, beating out runner-up IBM by 50 points. This win gave them their fifth Grand Stevie® dating back to 2018.

This victory is a monumental achievement, as organisers for the Stevie Awards for Women in Business receive 1,500 submissions annually. Grand Stevie winners are determined by the number of gold, silver, and bronze Stevie winners from a specific organisation. By besting a multinational corporation, The Audacious Agency has demonstrated its effectiveness in helping women entrepreneurs get the recognition they deserve. The team helped over 20 Australian women win in over 40 categories in this year’s awards program, with an impressive haul of seven gold trophies, 11 silver and 23 bronze.

TAA consistently achieves these results thanks to its tightly knit team of professionals. They create customised award entries that captivate and command attention by combining decades of marketing, branding and PR expertise. This approach brings compelling stories, explaining TAA’s high success rate in pitching their clients to award organisers.

Maggie Miller, president of the Stevie Awards, said, “In its 19th year, the Stevie Awards for Women in Business received outstanding nominations from women in organisations of all types, in 27 nations. We are gratified by how meaningful it is to women to win a Stevie Award, and how impactful it can be on the futures of their careers and their organisations. We congratulate all this year’s Grand, Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners for their achievements.”

Upon accepting the trophy, Lauren Clemett remarked: “To be trusted to take a business’s story and weave it into an outstanding award entry that wows is an incredible honour for us.” Annette Densham added: “We have to get past the fear, the doubt, the imposter syndrome… and draw out the amazingness of the business, of the leaders we work with.”
