SOUTH CAROLINA [June 14, 2021] – NP Strategy (NPS+), a strategic communications firm providing crisis, media and public relations assistance across the Carolinas, won two first place awards from the International Association of Business Communicators’ (IABC) S.C.

“Our NPS+ team is dedicated to creating exceptional results for our clients,” said Heather (Hoopes) Matthews, NP Strategy CEO. “I’m so proud of our team members for their resilience and innovation during a pandemic.”

Communications professionals from cities across the U.S. and Canada judge the IABC Palmetto Awards.

· NPS+ won an Award of Excellence in the audio/visual category for The Buzz with Burnie, an economic development podcast. With over 55 episodes, host Burnie Maybank and his co-host, NPS’s Kara Gormley Meador, interview industry experts each week.

· NPS+ won an Award of Excellence in Diversity and Inclusion for The Charleston Forum. As a state and national leader for holding discussions surrounding diversity and inclusion, the Forum conducted a community survey to collect resident input on race relations. Due to COVID-19, the Forum went virtual for its annual event to share the survey results.
