(BPRW) Sonshine Communications receives the National Minority Marketing and Communication Firm of the Year Award from the U.S. Department of Commerce's Minority Business Development Agency

(Black PR Wire) MIAMI, FL - One of Bernadette Morris’ key mantras adopted for this year is “Reimagining Opportunity and Building Back Better, Together.”  The savvy CEO of Sonshine Communications is definitely on the right track, as her firm recently received the National Minority Marketing and Communication Firm of the Year Award by the U.S. Department of Commerce and its Minority Business Development Agency. With a theme of “Reimagining Opportunity,” the award pays tribute to a minority-owned firm who has achieved notable success in the marketing and communications industry by demonstrating creativity and impact.

“I, along with my team, am so honored to receive this prestigious award and be recognized in this manner,” beams Morris.  “We will forever cherish this award as a mark of distinction and I respectfully thank the U.S. Department of Commerce, Minority Business Development Agency for this distinguished honor and opportunity, and to Marie Gill of M. Gill and Associates for nominating us.”

Morris explained that Reimagining opportunity in her business means stepping up to the plate to embrace and seize new market opportunities. This involves utilizing, taking advantage of, and participating in digital transformation. From embracing new platforms such as Zoom, mobile, cloud, and artificial intelligence, COVID-19 has altered how we work and drive decisions. Sonshine has, as a result, expanded its arsenal of services to include mobile app development and promotion, hosting of virtual events, live streaming, and more.
