York-based writer wins Rising Star Award
A York-based writer and content marketer has been honoured in a prestigious awards ceremony.
Katie Thompson, founder of Katie Lingo Ltd, was named a ‘Rising Star’ in the Consulting and Communications category at Campaign’s Female Frontier Awards.
The awards seek to “shine a spotlight on the industry’s rising stars by honouring those showing great promise in their first five years”.
At the online awards ceremony, Katie took part in panel sessions discussing industry trends. She was chosen for her contribution to content marketing, with a particular emphasis on her #Write52 campaign.
The campaign is a drive to encourage writers to produce one piece of weekly content on whichever digital platform they choose.
Katie, from Heworth, completed the challenge in December 2020 and has since been nominated at the European Content Awards for Best Low Budget Campaign.
Katie says: “To be recognised by the world’s leading business media brand for marketing is the highest honour.
“I feel proud to feature among so many inspiring women who are leading the charge in gender equality and creativity in marketing.”
Katie Lingo Ltd was founded in September 2016, offering outsourced content marketing services to agencies and small businesses.
The business has grown exponentially since this date, with the 2020 #Write52 campaign leading directly to 87 per cent revenue growth year on year.
