New Marketing Talent Award Winner Announced by VMA

The New Marketing Talent Award from the Veterinary Marketing Association (VMA) recognises a new marketer who has demonstrated marketing flair within the veterinary and animal health industry. Generously sponsored by British Dairying magazine, this year’s award winner is Debbie Cox, Business Development Manager for Battlab.

After graduating with a degree in Veterinary Nursing Science, Debbie took the leap into industry where her recent move to BattLab gave her the opportunity to explore the world of marketing. Of her award submission, Debbie says: “I saw this opportunity on LinkedIn and thought it would be a way to evaluate the work I have been doing in my new role at BattLab, take stock of what’s worked well and what’s not. Not for one moment would I have thought I would win!”.

Debbie also shared some advice to other new marketers in animal health, “Choose to work for a company who are open to ideas not necessarily the company with the biggest budget. Try things, what’s the worst that can happen?! Consider entering for the VMA New Marketing Talent award; you never know, you may well win!”.

The award was hotly contested, with very strong competition from finalists Sophie Lo Curto (Colourful CPD) and Amber Tennant (College of Animal Welfare).

The annual VMA Awards were held virtually this year but will be back as a live event on 18th March 2022 and hosted by comedian Russell Kane.
