Shooting Star worked closely with the Skills for Health marketing manager on the communications campaign for Our Health Heroes 2018.
As well as focusing on the key objectives, Shooting Star offered additional support to the in-house marketing team by building relationships with the sponsors and nominees on their behalf. Preparing the individuals for the public voting process and answering questions ahead of the ceremony and equipping sponsors with content and designs for use on social media.
Alongside the PR, marketing and social media support, Shooting Star worked closely with the photographer and acted as the interviewer for the videographers to capture the necessary imagery and content for the two videos.

As you know, this is the first time we have worked with your company, but Kerri has been great to work with – enthusiastic, committed, engaging and responsive. She suggested things we had not thought of (press pack for winners’ press offices, for instance). She has worked closely with us on this project and to be honest, she has felt like a part of our team and I am now sorry that it is all over!
She brought Emma and Zoe on board at various points to provide support and help and they were equally as great to work with, albeit for shorter periods of time.
Not only that, but Kerri managed a lot of the comms with our shortlisted nominees and winners. From our perspective, she was really emotionally engaged with many of them, made them feel special and some actively sought her out at the event. Her attitude and approach went above and beyond what we would have expected, and she is to be commended for it. She is a real credit to your organisation.
