On the 30th of June, we attended the StartUp Awards National Series at the DEPOT in Cardiff, where we were fortunate enough to be shortlisted for four awards alongside some incredible other businesses in Wales.
We are incredibly proud to announce that our Managing Director, Daisy, won The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award 2022!
This award is given to recognise an individual that shows ambition, energy, skill and vision, through the running of their business, all of which Daisy embodies every day.
Daisy founded Marketing Purks in February 2020, shortly before the first lockdown. Since then, we have outgrown offices, made an abundance of achievements, and had a whole lot of fun along the way – despite facing any challenges that came along!
StartUp Awards pride themselves on giving businesses the opportunity to celebrate their success and progress. Not only has the StartUps award given us the chance to acknowledge Daisy’s hard work, but the event itself has also provided a great opportunity to meet and appreciate other businesses. One of which, was Drop Bear Beer who we owe a big congratulations as they won an impressive four awards on the night!
In response to the award, Daisy wanted to say:
‘I am so grateful for this experience, in which I got to meet so many amazing people that are behind the scenes of some incredible Welsh businesses.
Winning this award has given us all a chance to celebrate how much Marketing Purks has developed and grown over the last couple of years. Ambition, energy and skill all played a crucial part in the development of Marketing Purks, as the company was launched during the uncertainty of the pandemic.
I want to thank my hard-working colleagues, our amazing group of clients and my supportive family and friends, all of whom I couldn’t have done it without.’
