Shannon Amos: My career journey at August Recognition

Shannon Amos: My Career Journey

By Shannon Amos

I started my journey at August Recognition in 2017 as Operations Assistant. During the first few months of my role I was immersed into the world of awards – from observing Donna conducting client strategy meetings to attending my first black-tie awards ceremony events. I was given the opportunity to experience all parts of the awards journey and thereby learn through being actively involved.

 

Shannon at Wembley Stadium

 

After gaining industry knowledge during my first 12-18 months – combined with increased confidence – I was able to specialise and shape my role to fit what I wanted to do and where I wanted to go. I’d expressed an interest in wanting to move into a Marketing position, so with excellent guidance and collaboration with Donna, I moved into a Marketing & Communications Executive role.

I was able to choose what training I needed to fulfil my new role, and was supported completely as I navigated through my new responsibilities. The great thing about working for a growing small business is you never stay still for long – priorities change, processes change and roles need to be adapted – it’s exciting, challenging, but definitely never boring!

 

Team at Goodwood

 

By 2020, we’d grown to a point where we needed more hands on deck, and we subsequently reviewed my role. This showed where tasks could be moved around and how my role could grow further as personnel increased. It was at this time I reflected on my skills, what I enjoyed and what the business needed, and realised my strengths were more aligned with operations. I was then able to establish myself in a new Operations Manager position, becoming the Digital Lead for the business – this has involved assessing and creating new digital assets and tools to drive growth and accelerate scalability as we work with organisations all over the world to win awards.

 

Celebrating Shannon's 5th anniversary

 

From Operations Assistant, to Marketing & Communications, to Operations Manager and now Operations Manager & Digital Lead – all in the space of five years. August Recognition has allowed me to hone my skills, adapt my role, and given me responsibility and accountability, with the added bonus of incredible experiences including attending events at Wembley Stadium, The Shard, and The Grosvenor House Hotel.

If you’re someone who likes variety, likes to be challenged and wants to work within a supportive team environment where the work we do takes clients on a really positive and exciting journey, August Recognition is the place for you – you’ll never know where your career may take you!

Keep believing and you WILL get there

Keep believing and you WILL get there

Keep believing and you WILL get there

Leave a Lasting Legacy

By Donna O’Toole

 
 

When England won the World Cup back in 1966, few people would have predicted a 56-year wait for another senior football trophy.

So many near misses and false dawns have heaped the pressure on our national teams, leading to a range of songs such as the iconic Three Lions (Football’s Coming Home) in an attempt to inspire another major triumph. Despite all the heartbreak from previous tournaments, we never stopped believing… ever.

As soon as the final whistle sounded at Wembley last night – following a dramatic 2-1 extra-time success against eight-time winners Germany, we could finally breathe a huge collective sigh of relief and celebrate a truly magnificent victory for our Lionesses. Champions of Europe for the first time. Simply incredible. Cue scenes of utter delirium from (most of) the 87,000 crowd who were fortunate to witness this historic moment that will stay with them forever.

 

 

Whether in sport, business or any other situation, the principle is still the same:

  • Keep believing in yourself
  • Keep working hard to improve
  • Keep learning from past performances
  • NEVER. GIVE. UP.

If you have entered awards in the past and not been successful, fear not. Your time will come. And when it does, the feeling will be so sweet. 

What’s more, winning is just the start of a wonderful, uplifting journey. For example, our England heroines will undoubtedly inspire a huge number of young girls to join their local club and dream of walking out for a showpiece final in the years to come. When you win an award, the impact it can have on your wider business is significant – motivating your employees, improving team morale, driving recruitment, raising brand awareness, attracting investment and growing sales.

With so much to gain, it’s time to seize the moment and get in touch with our expert team here at August Recognition, who can support you in your awards journey.

We’d love to meet you at our next online awards workshop, where we’ll share the secrets of winning awards and increase your chances of becoming a winner. Simply click below to join us on Wednesday 17 August from 11.00am:
