April 12, 2021, Augusta, GA — Gina Trimarco, Master Trainer for Sales Gravy, has been recognized as the 2021 Chamber Volunteer of the Year by the Myrtle Beach Chamber of commerce for her work with local small businesses.
At the outset of the global COVID-19 pandemic, Gina facilitated weekly Small Business Brainstorming and Collaboration Meetings for four months. These video conference meetings were instrumental in allowing local small business owners to develop and share their strategies for surviving during and thriving after the pandemic.
The meetings also featured guest appearances by a wide range of professionals, such as attorneys, HR directors, and marketing experts, who could help small business owners navigate the recent economic upheaval. Additionally, Gina started a Facebook group that attracted hundreds of businesses across the United States.
“During the very challenging year of 2020, Gina did her best to provide services to the chamber and fellow investors, truly exemplifying what it means to be the Volunteer of the Year,” says Greg Everett, publisher of Philanthropist.com and sponsor of the Volunteer of the Year Award.
Gina is an involved member of the chamber’s Business Development committee and member of the City of Myrtle’s Technology Advisory Group (TAG) committee. Gina is also the co-creator of the city’s first private/public sector co-work space. The Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce also previously awarded Gina with Business Innovation in 2009 and Diversity Champion in 2018.
Currently, Gina is a Master Trainer for Sales Gravy, a global leader in sales training and enablement solutions. She is a leadership strategist who helps organizations re-humanize relationships through Improvised Intelligence™ (improv-based emotional intelligence).
“This award is a wonderful acknowledgment of the spirit of service that Gina brings with her in everything she does,” comments Sales Gravy’s CEO and founder, Jeb Blount.
Prior to joining Sales Gravy, Gina founded and operated Carolina Improv Company, an improv comedy school and theater, in addition to Pivot10 Results, a leadership and sales training agency. She is an official speaker for Vistage Worldwide and has written for Forbes.com and TrainingMagazine.com.
