A Look at the 2019 Rock Star Awards
Looking at the new and rising talent around all of us, provides a glimpse into the future.
Let us take a reflective look at how the 2019 Rock Star Awards have been progressing and what we have seen this year.
Individuals in a workforce and people in society are driving themselves to the limit to produce results day in day out, or just to live a happier life. No matter how long you have worked in a company, people deserve recognition. Even if no one has noticed yet.
Finding The Diamonds
“Every year the calibre and the diversity for Rock Star Award candidates is amazing,” believes our MD, Angela Piromalli. Talent is peaking its eager head up in many different places. A shift is appearing, with more people from different backgrounds than before are standing up and wanting to be counted.
The underlying principles of the Rock Star Awards has never changed, since it started in 2012. Not only do they bring attention to certain individuals, but they show companies the features that make a successful individual.
“Deserving people are now being recognised outside of the status quo. There’s no underlying agenda there. It’s exciting for the future.”
By looking at skills and talents that were previously glazed over in industry, more adaptable candidates are sought out. With this new way of seeing people, we’re finding diamonds under rough rocks.
More Than Just A Company Initiative
A major factor in the Rock Star Awards is not only giving someone the recognition, but supporting their trajectory towards success. It is not just a shindig at the end of March, the Rock Star Awards present genuine opportunities to grasp for the future.
Fleur Cook, our Marketing Manager explains, “This platform showcases the right talent and projects it both locally and nationally.
“It puts the spotlight on young people, which extends beyond the one night.”
All of those involved in the awards, both past and present, interact on a regular basis, keeping the network pulse thriving. It has created a web of interaction that expands far beyond the awards themselves, focusing on growth and development for the future.
“Not only are new candidates offered the chance to see the success of previous award winners, but they can build on their own and reach out to people in this new database of marketing gold. The awards have a longevity way beyond the ceremony itself.”
“They are way more than just a trophy.”
The Rising Talent
Helping both company and candidates, there are two sides to these awards. Stars tap into our mentality at Rise, and help with initiatives from a fresh set of eyes.
A new perspective and a pool of people to lean on is something both sides of the process benefit from, with each award winner bringing something new to the table. There’s no set formula for the “Rock Star Award Winners” either; some may have tougher backgrounds than others, but all know how to work hard and work together.
Angela says, “Everyone who is involved in the awards are overcoming obstacles. We want to give as many young people as we can the chance to tackle these.
“We believe in support, and that’s what these awards are offering people. It’s ongoing and it’s permanent, the Rock Star Awards are the starting point of it. Every person we have come into contact with has had something magic about them. That’s who we want to support and that’s who we want to grow alongside.”
Why It’s All Worth It
Having such an event represents a lot of organisation and time, but what you get back from it is in abundance.
“When people come up to you and thank you for the event, it makes it all worth it. Whether they’ve won or not, we have endless amounts of grateful people approach us.” Angela says proudly.
Some nominees have not been given this kind of opportunity before, and being able to give them that platform to be appreciated means more than words.
Angela knows that planning, preparing and partnering with everyone involved is no easy feat, and it is a rewarding, but challenging process, to co-ordinate the entirety of the project. Seeing the smiles at the event and knowing we have made a difference to people’s lives on that night makes it worth it.
Angela concludes, “Grouping together talent, recruitment and sponsors we have a unique chance to do something different. By getting more involved in future partnerships and discussions we are able to create this mega-hub of resources in different industries, forming the Rise super-team. This will become a contender not just in the South of England, but on wider level.”
20/20 Vision For The Future
2019 for us is about growth, but it doesn’t stop there.
We want to give young people the biggest platform possible to express and debut their well-deserving work, something we’ll work towards and make a reality.
It’s about being inspired, and giving young people a chance on every level.
You can go on and achieve great things, and the Rock Star Awards can and will give others that leg up. This is our promise to the communities we work within.
