Wyn-Win Communications is proud to share that Wynona Redmond, president and founder of Wyn-Win Communications, has received the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) 2018 Patricia L. Tobin Media Professional Award.
Named for the pioneering publicist, media entrepreneur and co-founder of the National Black Public Relations Society (NBPRS), the Patricia L. Tobin Award honors a public relations, advertising, marketing professional, or media owner who serves as an industry trailblazer, affecting the positive representation of African Americans in the media and directing change in the media industry at large.
Our consultancy is dedicated to helping organizations effectively engage their community, customers and other key audiences. Through Wyn-Win, Wynona applies her passion, creativity and commitment to help clients achieve sales growth, community goodwill and public recognition.
Her extensive experience and commitment led to her serving as programming chair of NBPRS' first conference. She was also the organization's second president after Tobin passed the baton.
"Wynona is an excellent public relations expert who has represented some of the most important and influential corporations and public figures that are known to us," said NABJ President Sarah Glover. "Wynona's impact is far reaching. She has always had a deft touch and is more than deserving of this special honor."
Wynona is both honored and humbled by this recognition.
"It's emotional because I miss my friend and colleague, Pat Tobin. She was a big-hearted entrepreneur and one of my role models when I started Wyn-Win Communications five years ago. We both shared the definition of PR as people and relationships," she said. "Like Pat, I treasure the relationships I've had with NABJ and the National Black Public Relations Society professionals; all of us working to make our communities and students stronger."
Wyn-Win Communications offers strategic counsel on issue-based communications, community outreach priorities and consumer relations, project management and executional support for the most complicated public affairs and community engagement assignments.
Before founding Wyn-Win Communications, Wynona led public affairs and community engagement responsibility in both the public and private sector, including Northstar Lottery Group, Dominick's Finer Foods, Illinois Department of Children & Family Services, the Chicago Housing Authority and Cook County Hospital.
