Pointing you in the right direction
‘Awarded’ is an awards consultancy designed purely to maximise your chances of winning. That’s winning awards and recognition in the right places, to help achieve your marketing and business objectives. Whether your goal is to increase sales, target new customers or build brand awareness, Awarded can point you in the right direction.
There are three main ways I can help you.
Working as an extension of your team to create compelling case studies for various marketing needs. And identifying those with award-winning potential.
Developing the right awards strategy for your business, identifying the best award schemes for you and matching up the right projects with the right categories.
Crafting engaging stories to make the judges take notice, as well as managing the submission process from start to finish.
Experience and achievements
I am an experienced marketer within the branding and design industry. Over the past decade, I was responsible for developing the awards strategy to achieve both internal and external business objectives at Elmwood. Directing and overseeing the entry process, I was also responsible for creating and driving the awards calendar, and educating and inspiring the global team to victory. The achievement of which I am most proud is maintaining Elmwood’s top of the league position in the DBA’s Design Effectiveness Awards for ten years running – effectively allowing them to substantiate their positioning of ‘the world’s most effective design consultancy’. Something that was integral to their business success.
You should enter awards
Apart from the celebratory champagne, and the chance to get dressed up and have a night out, there are many tangible benefits of winning awards. And they make good business sense.
Experience significantly higher sales growth.
Attract and retain the best team for your business.
Important if you’re thinking of selling your business.
I’ve been involved in writing and managing many successful entries over the years, ranging from the Food & Beverage Awards (FAB) to the Yorkshire Post Excellence in Business Awards. Most notably however in the brand design industry, with gold wins in the Transform Awards in Europe and the Grand Prix in Asia Pacific. And not forgetting 55 DBA Design Effectiveness Awards in the past decade.
