FORBES TALKS TO PETE CARROLL AND AUDREY CAVENECIA
Pete Carroll knows a little something about winning. The legendary coach is one of only three to lead teams to both college and NFL football championships, with an 11-year tenure at the Seattle Seahawks. But he’s also known for two major traits—leading with compassion, and for his social justice leadership both on and off the field.
This week he is extending his reach even further with the launch of the “Amplify Voices: Conversations from the Heart” podcast as part of Amplify Voices, “his new media production and marketing company dedicated to providing a thriving platform for diverse and caring people with thoughtful perspectives” through various mediums such as podcasts, documentaries and public campaigns. His partner in this venture is Audrey Cavenecia, a media and brand-building veteran with particular expertise in storytelling.
COACH THE VOTE WINS
A multi-award winning campaign challenge directed at athletic coaches to get their teams signed up and get involved in the voting process. We also hired local black artists to paint Pete's signature Nike monarchs for him to wear during the season games. Afterward, we auctioned off the sneakers online, donating the money to a nonprofit for diverse artists. (watch video trailer)
