I was delighted to attend the change over meeting of the Rotary club of Macquarie Park last month, and was pretty humbled to receive the Roseanna Gallo award in honour of my contribution to the Rotary Carols on the Common.
For the past few years I've been assisting with the digital marketing, website and social media presence of the carols - which is the second largest Christmas Carols in Sydney after the carols in the domain. Each year I have been 'live blogging' the event, and working with major sponsors to help secure of $40 000 for local organisations and organisations such as ROMAC, who transport sick children from around the world for life changing surgeries in Australia.
It has been a thoroughly rewarding experience to work with a dedicated team and some of the highlights have been the redevelopment of the website and online branding, getting to do live event photography on the night, and all the experience gained creating a tailored marketing campaign for one of the sponsors that resulted in my mug with a giant cheque ending up in the newspaper!
