Each month, our tutors and development coaches nominate a Star Learner – an individual who has gone well above and beyond as part of their Bauer Academy programme.  As well as showcasing them here, they’ll receive a small prize to thank them for being awesome!

Winner: Maxine Dalziel

Programme: Reach PLC – Junior Journalist level 3

Star qualities:

Maxine is always exploring new ways of doing things.  Reach are taking all of their community content for their regional media outlets online (creating the ‘in your area’ platform).  Maxine has helped to pioneer this and has successfully shaped new content to what works best for the communities that she covers.

She’s also someone who constantly evaluates and adapts.  As ‘in your area’ is a brand new platform/start up, it’s essential to find ever better ways of engaging an audience who are only used to seeing community content in print, as well as adopting the right tone of voice .

Maxine is one of the most skilled multi-taskers we have ever had the pleasure of training – she even line manages another learner on the same programme.

Congratulations to Maxine – this is such a well-deserved award.
