EditorNews Make a Comment

The Comms Council has issued its annual call for entries for the Sandy Smith Inspiring Individual peer-based award. Entries close on Thursday 29 March 4.

The winner of the MediaWorks-sponsored award will be announced at the Beacons on Thursday 10 May – and will receive $10,000 to be used to further their education.

Sandy Smith (now deceased) was business development manager at MediaWorks for 13 years.

Last year’s winner was Julie-Ann Hedges of MediaCom Wellington (pictured).

“She would impart her knowledge to the budding stars – so in return, in her memory, MediaWorks would like to give back.”

“Sandy was a woman you would warm to immediately, who was universally liked by people from all walks of life,” said Comms Council ceo Paul Head.

“More than that, when it came to media, she earned the respect of everyone she encountered, through an inclusive style, a sassy attitude and just all round good smarts.

“She was a woman who gave back, a woman who had time for everyone, a woman who would impart her knowledge to the budding stars of our industry – so in return, in her memory MediaWorks would like to give back.”

So who is the Inspiring Individual?
The unsung hero in the company; the person who others find utterly inspiring with their generosity of spirit, their patience, their willingness and eagerness to be involved. The person integral to the company culture and passionate about contributing to the company’s success.
