Active Park Award

Pssst...It’s no secret that videos have become the most popular choice for content consumption today.

Did you know, as of 2022, the average person is predicted to spend 100 minutes per day watching online videos. So why not take advantage of that in Digital Marketing. I have experience with many forms of video content, from creating stories, award applications, to developing existing content. From utilising keynote speakers and conference content and creating it into usable and digestible content. I know how and when to use video, animated video, fun boomerangs and GIF.

Collaborating with the Marketing Manager and Videographer we created the award winning video for "At the Heart of Our City: Strategic Framework for Children and Young People in Porirua." which highlighted the strategy put together by the Principal Advisor for Children and Young People. 

Tompkins Wake Award for Better Policy and Regulation: Recognises the development of robust and effective evidence-based policy or local regulatory initiatives. Any policy, plan or regulatory initiative is eligible for this award.

Debate, don't Hate video 

TROLLING AND ABUSE STRATEGY:

The current environment on social media can be a tricky place to navigate, which is why I worked with the CE executive advisor and the Communications Director to create a video which highlighted a very specific message for residents of Porirua, "Debate, not hate".

The video was created in-house and used our own staff members as the voice, this shows the diversity within our own organisation.

It was a fantastic result, and the kids (and parents) really enjoyed themselves.
