Aurora, ON Canada –’s innovative Personal Excellence App was just named the winner of the highly acclaimed Gold Stevie(R) Award in the Professional Education App category in The 11th Annual International Business Awards.

The Personal Excellence App and Web Platform were created to provide users with 3 to 5 minutes of personalized daily content to help reinforce training, build leadership, and motivate individuals to take action to improve their personal and professional life.

Companies and resellers working with the app are able to incorporate their own content, messaging, branding, training and employee communications. The app is currently being used by F1000 companies to engage employees with reinforcement training and corporate values, by educational institutions to communicate with staff, students and alumni, and by associations to communicate with their members. With full metrics, content administration, and custom branding, organizations can customize the App to best suit the needs of their users.

The International Business Awards are the world’s premier business awards program. All individuals and organizations worldwide – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small – are eligible to submit nominations. The 2014 IBAs received entries from more than 60 nations and territories.

“We are thrilled to have the Personal Excellence App included in the Stevie Awards,” commented Debbie McGrath, CEO of “Receiving this award reaffirms our goal to provide organizations with a tool to help them reinforce their educational and training initiatives and ability to provide personal development to a large audience.”

Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 250 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process from May through early August.
