DANILO TAKES TOP SPOT AT NATIONAL CALENDAR AWARDS

Held at the beautiful Stationer’s Hall in London we were one again thrilled to mingle at the National Calendar Awards with friends from Calendar Club, Grange Communications, Pixel, Carousel Calendars, Avonside Publishing among others, whilst wandering through the exhibition and admiring all the 2017 nominations.

The NCA’s are a national event (we like to think the OSCAR’s of the calendar world) held annually celebrate the best calendar designs and bring together printers, designers, photographers, artists, publishers as well as the industry’s future ‘the student’.

And this year we were delighted to have received ten nominations and won FIVE awards!

We were also joined by TV star Nick Ferrari who did a fantastic job of hosting and presenting the awards and we thoroughly enjoyed the LBC Radio Star’s hilarious anecdotes throughout the night.

So after another great night, the Danilo team are now gearing up for showing our new 2018 range at Spring Fair at NEC, Birmingham this February.

Fingers crossed we can replicate our success at next year’s awards!

AN INTERVIEW WITH…AMY ROWLEY

As our way of helping you, our lovely followers, get to know the Danilo Team a bit better, we have been posting fun interviews with one of our fab employees.

This time, we’ve selected our newest addition to the Danilo Team…Amy Rowley who has recently joined us as our new Sales Office Manager, to be put under the spotlight.

New member of the Danilo Team Amy

New member of the Danilo Team Amy

So we asked Amy:

  1. What was your previous job to Danilo?

My previous and most recent job was a Personnel and Training team leader with Asda, I enjoyed the people aspect of the job and gained a great deal of useful experience.

  1. Who would play you in a film of your life?

In a movie of my life I would love to be played by Cameron Diaz, she’s a strong, funny character and actress and I’m sure she could pull off an excellent British accent! (Flattering myself massively here…ha-ha!)

  1. What do you consider your greatest achievement to date

Not sure of greatest but most recent would be passing my driving test and getting on the road after great perseverance and a lot of time and effort put in. To me it was a big deal and something I really wanted to do for myself!

     4. What 3 words would friends / family / colleagues use to describe you?

Certain, Understanding, Sunny

  1. What is the best piece of advice you’ve received?

‘Train your mind to see the positive in every situation.’ From a work colleague who became my friend, she helped me understand the power of positive thinking and how it benefits you and those around you 🙂
