Awards and kudos
SPOTLIGHT ON EXCELLENCE AWARD
I was awarded the companywide "Spotlight on Excellence" accolade by CSG's President/CEO within my first 9 months of joining the company in recognition of my effective communications strategy and impact, high level of performance and overall business contributions. My efforts in focusing culture messaging and cohesively messaging COVID-19 impacts and business decisions, including my ability to conceive of and deliver high-quality and impactful campaigns despite still being "on the learning curve" for my role and the company, contributed to my receiving this honor.
CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE (CX) CHAMPION AWARD
I was personally recognized by the President, CEO & Chairman of DIRECTV for producing an educational campaign that was used cross-departmentally to improve the customer experience. In preparation for a national TV advertising campaign touting a new product, I developed a package that would educate our front lines so they could speak to the product's capabilities and "translate" claims made in the commercials. The materials, made in collaboration with our Marketing and Field Services Video departments, were met with resounding praise from our Sales, Customer Care and Field Services departments. The effort resulted in better interactions between frontline field personnel and customers in-home, reduced call times with Customer Care agents and increased product sales.
PRSA SILVER ANVIL AWARDS (2)
I was part of a team awarded two Silver Anvil awards from the Public Relations Society of America for my work on campaigns involving our financial client. The PRSA awards Silver Anvils to teams demonstrating creativity, professional skill and resourcefulness on PR campaigns with a budget under $100,000.
