Meet the 2022 People Awards winners
Agiito's marketing team won Business Transformation Initiative of the Year in last year's People Awards. We spoke to Neal Poole, Director of Marketing
We were lucky enough to win four awards on the night and one highly commended, which was amazing. Winning any award is a great achievement, but to win awards that recognise our people’s hard work and commitment is next level. And the People Awards do just that!
The People Awards are the most recognised awards in our industry that specifically cater for people who have gone above and beyond their daily duties. And to walk away with any recognition; finalist, highly commended or winner from these awards is a great sense of achievement.
When we heard our name being called, we couldn’t believe it. We all looked around the table at one another with increased anticipation shortly followed by overwhelming elation. I couldn’t be prouder of the team for winning this award.
All our friends and colleagues were incredibly happy for us. There aren’t many awards in our industry that provide an opportunity for marketing professionals to have a shot at. So, to be recognised under Business Transformation Initiative of the Year, for our teams work on the complex and in-depth re-brand, was the cherry on the top for all the hard work that went into the whole project.
This was a team award, and it has had varied impact on all of the team, depending on their current profile in the industry. But overall, it has elevated the profile of each individual and their specific skill sets and it has certainly highlighted the value and impact a well-oiled marketing team can have on a business.
For anyone thinking about entering the awards this year, go for it. This category is one of a few that is broad enough to cater for such a diverse set of skills and achievements that can recognise an individual or a team. And if won, or even highly commended, then the reward is even more satisfying.
