The All Points PR Team Reflects on 2018 Growth and the Years to Come

The All Points PR team recently celebrated the holiday season during our 2018 holiday party. There, the team enjoyed dinner, desert and a gift exchange, complete with the inaugural “APPRs” and a team seminar.

President Jamie Izaks kicked off the night with our Q4 contest, The 2018 APPRs. In the weeks leading up to the first-ever awards event, the team filled out ballots nominating team members and pods for their hard work in the following categories: Media Relations, Social Media & Graphics, Content Marketing, Client Management & Professionalism, and Integration. Winners included Senior Account Lead Gillian Losh for Top Notable Placement, Director Sydney Thompson for Strongest Byline and Creative and Digital Associate Barbara Krygowska for Best Integrated Campaign of the Year.

In the seminar, COO and Executive Vice President Lauren Izaks shared a reflective overview of the agency’s growth, as well as what’s to come in the new year with the collaboration of several team members. Lauren began the presentation with a timeline of the agency’s growth – from its founding in August 2011 to a new and improved office location, the introduction of team seminars, the Positive Impact program and much more. The team was then treated to a photo collage video highlighting 2018 as a whole, from conferences and holiday celebrations to team outings and general fun around the office.

Lauren then invited several team members to discuss new developments and systems moving into 2019. Lead Project Manager Megan French was the first to take the stage to review important scheduling information across the agency. Director Bailey Hewitt then went over 2019 dates for our monthly seminars, encouraging team members to seek out new learning opportunities to share.

On the creative side, Senior Creative & Digital Account Lead Allie Kramer and Creative & Digital Associate Barbara Krygowska shared exciting materials coming into play beginning in January. One reveal featured a client-focused newsletter, showcasing the diverse insights and services of All Points in digital marketing and social media, content marketing and public relations.

Lauren wrapped up the presentation with a few words of inspiration and an exciting announcement on an initiative designed to bring our team even closer to our clients. The team enjoyed reflecting on 2018 as a whole, taking a look at past years with the agency and anticipating all that’s yet to come. The holiday season and celebratory atmosphere of the night certainly set the stage for ringing in an exciting new year at All Points.
