The All-Ireland Business Foundation has accredited AW Marketing Solutions with a Rising Star Accreditation in Marketing.

The Accreditation is an outstanding achievement for AW Marketing as it recognises their hard work and determination in providing a best-in-class service to their customers.

Business All-Star accredited companies are defined as; progressive, indigenous Irish businesses which meet the highest standards of verified performance, trust and customer-centricity.

This is an independently verified standard mark for indigenous businesses, based on rigorous selection criteria. The Accreditation is overseen by the prestigious All-Ireland Business Foundation, whose adjudication panel is chaired by Dr Briga Hynes of the Kemmy Business School at the University of Limerick and Kieran Ring, CEO of the Global Institute of Logistics.

Having satisfied the auditing process over the past few months, I am absolutely delighted to receive this Accreditation from the All-Ireland Business Foundation. I have over 15 years of experience in marketing management and feel this Accreditation recognises the hard work and dedication I have put into my career thus far, says Amanda Whitmore, Managing Director of AW Marketing Solutions.

She adds: “I am excited to further develop my business AW Marketing Solutions and to join the AIBF TRIBE where I hope to learn from the other members and offer my expertise to help others achieve their business goals. During what has been a difficult time for many businesses, it has never been more important to develop cost-effective marketing campaigns that deliver real results for my clients. I look forward to the year ahead and to adding value to a variety of new clients.”

Dr Hynes said the Accreditation, which is now held by over 450 firms, is needed by the thousands of small and medium businesses which operate to their own standards, but have nothing to measure them by.

“We evaluate a company’s background, trustworthiness and performance, and we speak to customers, employees and vendors. We also anonymously approach the company as a customer and report back on the experience. The business goes through at least two interviews and is scored on every part of the process against set metrics”, she says.

Amanda Whitmore is an experienced sales and marketing manager, offering support to organisations who do not currently employ a full-time marketing manager or who require an extra pair of expert hands for a specific task or project. She has a wealth of experience spanning over 15 years within the hospitality and leisure, retail, construction, interiors and insurance sectors within Ireland and the UK.

She has worked with varying sizes of businesses ranging in turnovers from 500k up to €150m and can adapt to whatever budget you have in mind for your business. The services offered at AW Marketing Solutions include social media, web and digital, strategy, event management and customer retention.

The All-Ireland Business Foundation is a national body which accredits best-in-class Irish businesses as Business All-Stars. The Foundation also oversees the All-Ireland Business Summit while promoting peer dialogue amongst our members on an ongoing basis.
