Andy Wilkinson

Marketing Leader of the Year

“To stand up in front of your friends, peers, colleagues, clients and stakeholders and be named Marketing Leader of the Year in the inaugural year of the awards is the highest accolade for me. Every part of the programme was robust, measurable, challenging and enjoyable making you perform to your absolute best to demonstrate your qualities. I treasure the experience and award and look forward to driving and supporting the event going forward…”

Sophie Donald

Rising Star of the Year

“Winning the Rising Star of the Year Award gave me great confidence at such a pivotal part of my career, the following week I was launching my own agency, Zest Marketing. Winning the award was a great time for me to reflect on the hard work I’d put in at my job, and also push me outside my comfort zone by being put into the spotlight. I honestly enjoyed the whole experience of participating, and winning was just the cherry on top. It also gave me that extra boost of confidence that I was ready for the next stage in my career”


Agency Team of the Year

“It’s always wonderful to be recognised for our work and achievements, however an award is much more than just peer endorsement, it’s about lifting the team, creating pride in our delivery, acknowledging our results and reinforcing our approach. “The Midlands is a hotbed of talent and creativity and the MMA is a fantastic showcase of not just regional excellence but national and international brilliance.”
