On September 23rd, the Skylark Collective hosted their first ever ceremony for the International Women’s Podcast Awards. Given that my podcast Success Beyond The Score was shortlisted for the category “Badass Bussiness Advice”, I drove to AllBright Women’s Club (Mayfair, London), to meet the other nominees and attend the ceremony.
Unfortunately, I was not the winner of my category. Nevertheless, I cherish the honour of being in the list of nominees along wonderful women who are doing incredible work in a variety of fields. It was great to know some of them during the awards, talk about our projects and the way we approach podcasting. Going there also made me feel less alone: before these awards, I didn’t know many women who made podcasts in Birmingham or London, but this event allowed me to find dozens of them!
I went back home with the satisfaction of receiving a nomination, which is a recognition to my work, and full of energy to continue with the podcast and the other projects associated with Success Beyond The Score. I started doing this because many people reached privately to ask me how I got to where I am, and I thought the best way to share it was through an open, accessible format like this. I am thankful for the audience I have built ever since, and for the boost that the Skylark Collective gave to my podcast and many others through their awards.
Stay tunned for more Success Beyond The Score very soon! You can find all the episodes on platforms like Libsyn, Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Deezer and Stitcher. You can also watch the second season on YouTube.
