Work Based Learning Awards 2010

Katrina after her speech

Katrina after her speech

Last night the team from A Star Media attended the 2010 Work Based Learning Awards, presented by Nottinghamshire Training Network. It was the second year that A Star Media had been invited to create films for the prestigious awards, filming all 27 nominees and then editing them into summaries for all the categories.

Despite the disruption to the filming caused by the snow last month (our car and kit were trapped at the NTN HQ for 4 days!) we managed to get all the films finished in plenty of time for the big night.

This was good news for Katrina because she had bigger fish to fry, namely being the key note speaker at the event, attended by around 420 people at the super posh East Midlands Conference Centre. It’s fair to say Katrina was pretty nervous before the night!

However, she took the bull by the horns and talked to the audience, made up of apprentices, learners and training providers, about her experiences of training and starting up her video production Nottingham business with John.

The speech went down well, and so did the films, and today the team got the following feedback from Janet Charlton, Chief Executive of the Nottinghamshire Training Network.

‘Thank you for all your hard work and support in making yesterday’s Award’s event such an enormous success. Katrina, the feedback on your presentation was excellent, you were a breath of fresh air. You truly are a rising star.’

Good news for A Star Media, we’re looking forward to the rest of 2011 and the next Work Based Learning Awards!
