DAA Awards for Excellence: Thank You
On Tuesday, April 16, (almost all) my partners and I were lucky enough to attend the DAA Awards for Excellence Gala, held in San Francisco during the eMetrics Digital Marketing & Optimisation Summit.
Apart from a lovely meal, a great keynote and a chance to network with industry colleagues, the Gala is also where the Digital Analytics Association presents the winners of the annual Awards for Excellence.
This year, I was honoured to be a finalist for Practitioner of the Year, joined by some amazing industry colleagues:
- Nancy Koons, Vail Resorts, Senior Web Analytics Manager
- Peter McRae, Symantec, Sr. Manager of Optimization
- Pradip Patel, FedEx, Manager Digital Marketing Analytics
- Balaji Ram, Walmart.com, Senior leader in Site Analytics & Optimization
We have some incredibly talented people in this industry, and I think this list is a wonderful example of that. These finalists are doing great things to push the boundaries of what we do, and move our industry forward. I feel honoured to just be a part of this group, and humbled to have been selected by the judges as Practitioner of the Year.
Congratulations to all the nominees, the finalists and the winners. Thank you to the kind person who nominated me. Thank you to the DAA members for your support in voting for me as a finalist – that alone is an honour. Thank you to the judges, who had to make such a difficult choice amongst such deserving finalists. And thank you to our community, for teaching me, supporting me, challenging me and inspiring me every day.
