Skillnet Ireland have been named as a finalist for the Digital Media Awards 2019, which works to celebrate digital marketing excellence across all sectors of the economy.
Now in their 14th year, the Digital Media Awards are the most prestigious digital awards in Ireland. They recognise creativity and innovation across multiple areas of an ever-evolving sector which includes digital content creation, advertising and marketing, mobile media, social networking, app development, web design and development.
Skillnet Ireland has been selected as a finalist in two award categories ‘Best Brand’ and ‘Best in Public Service’.
Commenting on the shortlist honour, Paul Healy, Chief Executive of Skillnet Ireland said; “The Digital Media Awards has become a key event in the digital marketing calendar, recognising the contributions of the best and the brightest of the digital space.
Skillnet Ireland has worked hard to develop a strong digital presence which allows us to promote and facilitate workforce learning in Ireland effectively. Congratulations to everyone who has been shortlisted. It’s a great achievement and one worth celebrating.”
Skillnet Ireland supports over 15,000 companies nationwide and provides a wide range of valuable learning experiences to almost 50,000 trainees via our 65+ Skillnet Learning Networks.
The Skillnet Ireland Digital Media Award entry demonstrated the impact and value of workforce development to Irish businesses by harnessing the human-interest stories from our learning networks and translating that into content that was relevant and relatable for our core SME business audience. Additionally, a critical deliverable that enabled us to achieve this was to develop a related website structure that could be adopted by each of our 65+ Skillnet Learning Networks.
This year’s awards take place on Friday, 15 February, at The Clayton Hotel, Burlington Road.
