Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 27, 2014
Rachel Dalton, CEO, Rachel Dalton Communications (RDC) was awarded the Full Circle Award at the 10th Anniversary M2W® – The Marketing to Women Conference, May 6 & 7, 2014, Chicago Cultural Center. “The award started in 2008. It is given annually to a marketer who has best demonstrated how attending M2W® has positively impacted their marketing to women strategies and campaigns, or has helped give them the impetus they needed to start something new,” according to Nan McCann, M2W® producer.
“Previous winners have included Motorola, Harley-Davidson, Ghirardelli Chocolate, AC Delco, Carlolina Pad and Bcureful,” McCann explained. “Rachel Dalton won because after attending the 2012 M2W® she took what she learned back across the Atlantic to Dublin and transformed her recession-stricken PR agency into a marketing to women powerhouse. In less than two years since focusing on marketing to women, RDC has hosted Ireland’s first marketing to women conference, more than quadrupled revenues, hired 9 new staff members, moved to new headquarters and opened a second office in London.”
Said Dalton, “My agency was literally struggling for survival due to the aftermath of the financial crash of 2008. That’s when I discovered the M2W® web site. It was an extraordinary “eureka” moment for me. I saw specializing in marketing to women as an enormous opportunity for both the Irish and UK marketplace. It provided a highly distinctive platform to differentiate the agency and build a stand out position in a notoriously competitive arena. And what I learned at M2W® made it all happen for Rachel Dalton Communications”.
“As Rachel’s experience demonstrates, the purpose of M2W® is to teach marketers how to build better business with women who control 85% of all consumer spending in virtually every product category,” McCann said. “This year’s program included over 30 speakers and presentations from category leaders as diverse as McDonald’s, WNBA, Harley-Davidson, BlogHer, CorningWare, Vixen Vodka, Lifetime, the Girl Scouts, WebMD and Yahoo!.”
“Attendance typically includes marketing executives from companies as diverse as Samsung, Hilton; Aetna, Red Robin; BET, Kraft Foods, Ford, GM, J&J, Kellogg, Brown-Forman, Walgreens, Nestle; Wells Fargo, NBA, Burton, L’Oreal, Hershey and Whirlpool,” McCann said. “They attend because they recognize the brand-critical importance of reaching women.”
