Angelique Rewers, ABC, APR
CEO & Founder - The Corporate Agent
Harnessing her more than 15 years of experience working with FORTUNE 500 and other leading organizations, Angelique Rewers, ABC, APR, helps small business owners, solopreneurs and the self-employed stop chasing smaller clients in favor of landing lucrative corporate contracts.
Angelique is the person to turn to because she’s been there herself. After nearly a decade of designing and executing award-winning communication and marketing campaigns for FORTUNE 500 companies, she left corporate America for life as an entrepreneur.
Out of the gate she was successful, landing large contracts with some of the top names in the technology, defense, energy, medical and consulting industries, breaking the six-figure mark in just one year. She’s been working with some of the world’s most renowned companies ever since, including Northrop Grumman, ITT, Constellation Energy, BD (Becton Dickinson),Towers Watson and MedStar Health, as well as with mid-market and emerging companies, like Clarkston Consulting, KM Systems Group, PIDI, Strategic Services International,Global Link Logistics, and KCIC.
Today, Angelique focuses on leveraging her expertise to help self-employed professionals and small business owners who are tired of struggling to find clients who not only want to buy their services, but who can also afford to pay for them.
In fact, a recent poll from SolopreneurLife.com found that a majority of self-described “solopreneurs” made only $20,000 in 2010. And while that may sound low, on closer reflection, that number isn’t all that shocking. After all, it can be difficult to build a six-figure (or higher) business selling services primarily to individual consumers or other small business owners when they themselves don’t have big incomes.
But Angelique is trying to help change that. Her mission is to teach entrepreneurs how to successfully market their services to large businesses — businesses that spend BILLIONS of dollars yearly on products and services. And with the unique experience of having been on the corporate side of the buying process, managing million-dollar budgets for tradeshows, ad campaigns, annual reports, media relations, events and more, Angelique understands what corporations look from their suppliers... and knows just how to become one of those trusted vendors.
Angelique’s work has garnered awards and recognition from nearly two dozen regional, national and international organizations. Her expertise in building trust with people and organizations has been featured in two books: Building the High Trust Organization: Strategies for Supporting Five Key Dimensions of Trust and the PR News Employee Communications Guidebook. And, in 2010, she was awarded the Platinum Excellence Award from the Millionaire Protégé Club.
Now, through her mentoring programs, consulting services and training products, Angelique is sharing the very business strategies and marketing methods she’s used to grow and transform her own business.
