HEAD OF DIGITAL OPERATIONS SERVICES AT AMAZE SHORTLISTED FOR EVERYWOMAN IN TECHNOLOGY AWARD

Tue 9th Feb

London: 9 February 2016 

Leading digital marketing, technology and commerce consultancy Amaze, is proud to announce that its Head of Digital Operations Services, Amanda Follit, has been shortlisted for an Everywoman in Technology award, in the Digital Star Award Category.

Amanda is one of 34 women to have been named as a finalist in the sixth annual FDM Everywoman in Technology Awards in association with techUK*, recognised for changing the face of technology in the UK. These women have been selected from a field of hundreds of applicants, chosen by a panel of senior technology leaders against criteria including career achievement, future potential and their commitment to supporting others in the industry.

About Amanda Follit

In her role at Amaze, Follit is responsible for creating innovative services to help clients manage their digital estates and has even penned a white paper showing for the first time how monitoring and analysing different types of data can affect the way a web estate is run and the effect it has on the customer experience and effectiveness of an organisation’s digital footprint.

While this is a whole new way of looking at digital marketing operations, Follit has also created successful model theories for use in global organisations, helping them change their digital operations structures to make them more effective in the long-term. For example, the intelligence provided by these theories has driven significant digital operations change in a global FMCG company, with it rising in the Bowen Craggs index from 15th to 5th in one year and up to 4th in the following year.

Follit also successfully mentors a number of teams internally at Amaze and externally at other creative organisations in Liverpool and Manchester. This includes a first consultant who is working on delivering these new services, having to learn the methodologies from the ground up.

The Awards

Over 500 industry leaders, government representatives and the media will join the celebrations at the London Hilton on Park Lane on 23 February 2016, to find out who has won the 2016 Awards. These Awards champion and raise the profile of the individual women that are achieving success in their field, and the companies that are supporting them to do so. The event is preceded by the Everywoman Technology Forum – the largest UK forum for women in technology, a day of inspiration, learning and development, bringing together over 600 women who are aspiring to advance their careers or become future leaders.
