Is one of your team a shining star?

The Marketing Week Engage Awards Rising Star category is one of the most vital awards because it acknowledges the importance of future leadership and inspiration in marketing.


We believe that mentoring and developing the skills for the next generation of marketers is vital and the promotion and motivation of future talent is essential if marketing is to retain its central role within organisations.

This year the award is sponsored by Ball & Hoolahan and potential Rising Stars can enter themselves or employers can enter deserving employees. Entry forms on the Marketing Week Engage Awards website here.

Entrants must have at least three years of relevant marketing experience and will have contributed towards a key marketing initiative within their company.

Previous winners of this prestigious award include Gemma Howells, who at the time worked for Innocent Drinks and is now at Mars Petcare.


So, don’t be shy putting yourself forward if you think you deserve this award or, if you’re the boss, of nominating any young talent on your team.
