A Proud Moment

In Blogs by Shawston

We’re immensely proud!!!

Why?  Because our very own Head of Marketing – Angela Wilkins has just achieved her chartered marketeer status.  This achievement is all the more impressive when you consider the personal choices that she has made along the way.

Three years ago, and with her three young boys now off to school, Angela chose to return to work having paused her career to have a family.  She also made the choice to refresh her chartered status (which she had already previously achieved) because she knew that by doing so would bring her back up to speed with the latest marketing thinking.  This meant a huge personal sacrifice for Angela – many hours spent studying within her own personal time!

At the same time Angela chose to join Shawston as Head of Marketing.  Over the last three years she has personally guided the business through a full brand refresh, the launch of an industry leading website, the release of the Shawston Master Brochure and the Shawston Brochure, leading our drive on LinkedIn, along with too many other achievements to list. 

Life is about choices, and Angela always chooses to succeed.  And that makes us proud.

Shawston has so many more amazing examples of meritocracy – sponsorship of MBA’s, graduate development schemes, and a strong record for internal promotion to name just a few.  And the common theme is that all these people made choices too – the choice to improve, to be better, to progress, and to shine.  And that’s the essence of Employee Ownership.  We encourage a freedom of expression rarely seen in business, we push people to be better versions of themselves, and we give them the space to make choices.
