Marketing has tremendously grown leaps and bounds in the past years or so not only have we significantly changed it’s landscape from traditional marketing efforts but now we are all going digital especially with the advent of social media making such a big impact to everyone as of this day and age.
My Professor in Ateneo Mr. Eric Soriano won this award for the Marketing Education Category last year and honestly that was the first time I have heard of this prestigious award giving body who gives due recognition to those who have exemplified outstanding performance in Marketing in the various aspects of society. To get a briefer here’s a video of their various categories from last year’s awarding ceremony.
I was one of the fortunate ones to be invited to cover this event last week at the Podium and we were quite fortunate to be seated with Ms. Pinky and Ms. Alpha in their table. These two women are behind the team in this upcoming and enthralling event.
In the country this award giving body is comparably similar to the “Oscars of Philippine Marketing” this is the most prestigious award giving body that our fellow marketers aim to receive at least once in their life since it validates their efforts and the breakthroughs in which they have contributed to society through their sheer hard work, innovative ideas and unwavering dedication to their craft.
Now, as it embarks on it’s 36th year the Agora Awards continues this legacy of Marketing Excellence as it recognizes again outstanding individuals who have changed the landscape of Marketing in their own respective fields. Cast in your votes now before their deadline on September 8, 2015.
Their categories for this year’s awarding are the following: Marketing Company of the Year, Outstanding Achievement in Advocacy Marketing, Outstanding Achievement in Entrepreneurship (Large/ Small/ Medium Scale) , Outstanding Achievement in Marketing Management, Outstanding Achievement in Marketing Communications, Outstanding Achievement in Marketing Education, Outstanding Achievement in Overseas Marketing and the Outstanding Achievement in Export Marketing.
Nominations can be made by any professional who is engaged in a duly registered organization. Self- nominations are also most welcome and previously nominated people can also be included again in this year’s roster of nominees. All entries much be mailed directly upon completion of the said requirements to The AGORA Committee Philippine Marketing Association Unit 1006- A West Tower, Philippine Stock Exchange Road, Ortigas Center, Pasig City 1605.
Best of luck to all nominees and may the best Marketer win! 🙂
