As one of AI Global Media’s Directors, Kathryn is passionate about delivering maximum value for each award winner.
"As a freelance business adviser, it was a fantastic feeling just to be noticed amongst all the other larger consulting firms in the UK.
I’ve used the award in a number of ways already: to assure clients that they are, and are continuing to, work with recognised excellence; and to assure my parents that their son didn’t turn out all that badly after all!
"This recognition has also meant that my credibility when submitting evidences and ideas to inform future government policy and wider business support practices is enhanced. It’s offered me a great excuse to rekindle relationships with lapsed colleagues and network contacts who reached out to congratulate me on this achievement."

"Winning an award is a third-party endorsement of your capabilities and should be highly treasured and promoted.
"AI Global Media have gone out of their way to help me promote the award, they have taken the awards to the next stage, it is not a bye-bye when you have the certificate but a concentrated effort to ensure that your achievements reach a wider audience. Our award has been seen on all the social media platforms, by clients and competitors, friends, and family. The logo is on every email we send out and all of this is due to the encouragement of the team at AI.
"The award has endorsed our capabilities, made people think more seriously about our work and most importantly has influenced our bottom line. People are more likely to trust an award winner and accept that if you employ an award-winning agency there is a cost for this extra layer of professional advice."
