g.spot’s Creative Publisher Bea Evardone Wins at the 2022 Mansmith YMMA Awards

At the recent 17th Mansmith Young Market Masters Awards, Bea Evardone is celebrated for her achievements in Geographical Marketing.

Bea Alfar Evardone, the Creative Publisher of g.spot and the Group Chief Operating Officer and Head of Strategy for our parent company Republiq Group of Companies (RGC), is one of this year’s recipients of the Mansmith Young Market Masters Awards.

The Young Market Masters Awards (YMMA), now in its 17th year, is the advocacy of Mansmith and Fielders, Inc., the leading training and consultancy company in the Philippines. According to its website, the YMMA seeks to honor young achievers, 35 years old and below, who excel in marketing, sales, and entrepreneurship, and whose achievements encourage and inspire young people to be innovative entrepreneurs and outstanding brand builders. 

During the awarding ceremony on July 27, 2022, at the RCBC Theater in Makati, Philippines, Evardone delivered a speech that touched on the awardees’ marketing challenges, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We can truly see that the core of the campaigns and our executions will always be the consumers. Always put your consumers first. This is especially challenging because we have every reason and every right to be selfish, to think of ourselves, because we, too, are facing a pandemic,” she said.

“But because we are facing a pandemic, that is the very reason the consumers should matter more,” she continued.

The success stories of the awardees proved that when the heart is in the right place, when we continue to uphold our brand purpose, and most importantly when we put our consumers first, no crisis can put us down.

She then co-founded a digital marketing company catering to local businesses, before coming on board RGC as Senior Project Manager in 2017 and rising above the ranks.

In RGC, Evardone helped develop several digital products that championed VisMin people and culture, including BAI TV, BAI Social, BAICon InFest, and g.spot, among others. BAICon InFest kickstarted the creation of the Creator and Influencer Council of the Philippines, of which she currently sits as the Founding Secretary.

Additionally, she is actively serving the Cebu Hub of The Global Shapers Community as its Curator and has taught for a semester at her Alma Mater.

She is also committed to maintaining a healthy work-life balance by regularly partaking in workouts, meditating in the mornings, and being a proud member of the BTS Army.
