Watertight Marketing, the creators of the MD’s essential marketing training programme, announced winners in three categories of their brand new annual awards. The awards were presented by the founder and creator of the powerful Watertight Marketing methodology, Bryony Thomas, at a ceremony in Bristol last week.


Kara Stanford, Hampshire-based marketing strategist, was named ‘Watertight Marketing Accredited Consultant of the Year’. This award recognises the strategic marketing consultant within the Watertight Marketing Expert Community who has most embodied the shared values in the preceding year.


Karen Meager, co-founder of Monkey Puzzle Training & Consultancy, was named the ‘Watertight Marketing Business Owner of The Year’ following her success on the flagship Marketing Masterplan training programme for business owners.


Sara Parker, Marketing Manager at Face For Business, was named as the ‘Masterplanner of the Year’. This is the award for marketing professionals undertaking the programme on behalf of their organisation. Sara was the internal lead on the Marketing Masterplan programme for her business.


In announcing the award, creator and founder of Watertight Marketing, Bryony Thomas, commented: “One of the main reasons Kara stood out for me amongst a community of true experts, was the way that she has consciously designed a business and network that fits with personal definition of success. There’s a lot that many entrepreneurs could learn from Kara about how to find purpose and contentment in their work, not least what she knows about marketing!”


In accepting her award, Kara commented: “I’m blown away by winning this. The community of experts that Watertight Marketing has brought together is made up of such inspiring and talented individuals, to be selected from amongst a group of such people is really such an honour.”
