In the last four months, I’ve been fortunate enough to attend two awards ceremonies on behalf of Mabo, where I’ve been nominated for two personal awards. Despite not winning either, I was very thankful to be shortlisted for Young Search Professional of the Year at the UK Search Awards in London and for Young Digital Marketer of the Year at the Northern Digital Awards in Leeds. Last month (February) I found out that once again I’d been shortlisted for an award, this time at the UK Biddable Media Awards in London. I mention the previous nominations not to boast (how could I when I didn’t win!), but to actually express gratitude and delight at being named Rising Star of the Year at the UK Biddable awards.
The only downside; I wasn’t able to be there – I’d already booked a weekend away in Belgium with some fellow Mabo’ers. Even though I was gutted to have not been able to attend the awards ceremony, Belgium did not disappoint! However, thankfully I was represented at the awards by three members of the Mabo team in Richard, Jenny and Chris. The team collected my award and scrubbed up alright from the photos I’ve seen – Richard, you look like Tom Cruise, you handsome sod!
A big thank you to our Marketing Director, James Lees and the Marketing team for their hard work writing our award entries, and thank you to the whole Mabo team who are a pleasure to work with and were so jubilant for me on the announcement of the win. Up The Mabo, here’s to more award wins in the future!
