I’ve been named the Australian Young Marketer of the Year for 2017!

What a week it has been! I am incredibly proud to have been at the ADMA AC&E Awards this week and to have elatedly been named the Australian Young Marketer of The Year for 2017. (For those that are new around here: I’m currently juggling both a full time job and working on this blog, this award is mainly from my full-time work as a content and digital marketer).

The Young Marketer Award has emerged as one of the most coveted award categories in the prestigious AC&E Awards. The Young Marketer Award celebrates individuals aged 30 or below with outstanding talent and potential to shape the future of the marketing and advertising industry.

Over 500 people attended the event at the Big Top in Luna Park Sydney to celebrate the most creative and effective work delivered by the Australian industry. It was a fabulous night filled with networking, laughing, entertainment and of course drinking champagne!

The prize includes a whirlwind trip to New York where I will have the opportunity to meet with world renowned marketing and advertising gurus! I can’t wait to plan this trip and will be sure to share all of my adventures in New York with you through this blog.
