Last week, our founder and MD, Stefanie Hopkins, took part in the judging panel for the Eaton Smith Business of the Month Awards. Sam Teale Productions was chosen as the August winner, a three-year-old video production company founded by the self-taught Sam at only 16 years old.
Stefanie was inspired not just by the whole panel of competitors, but by the passion, ambition and life Sam Teale Productions brought to the table. Within a short space of time since their inception, Sam Teale Productions has received a range of accolades, including ‘Young Entrepreneur of the Year’ with Great British Entrepreneur Awards & Community.
In the past three years since being founded, Sam Teale Productions has worked with major companies such as Booking.com, Santander, Budweiser China, Capri-Sun, CO-OP and Heatable, and has recently become affiliate partners with the Championship football club, Huddersfield Town. Amazingly, last year the team made one of the most successful Christmas ‘adverts’ ever, beating John Lewis’ famous Christmas advert for number of online views in their touching video about the cost-of-living crisis.
On the win, Stefanie commented: “The judges and I absolutely loved Sam Teale Productions’ application. The team’s unique character really shone above the other applicants. The application gives a very impressive story of Sam Teale chasing his passion and turning it into a successful business.
“The rise from a youthful videographer to a thriving business is a testament to Sam and the team he has built around him. A well-deserved award for a truly remarkable group of young people.”
Sam Teale, founder of Sam Teale Productions, commented: “It is an absolute honour to be named Eaton Smith Solicitors business of the month, the businesses that have come before us are incredible and we are so proud that the panel felt like we deserved this accolade. We will place this proudly in the middle of our office and we will keep striving to make the most magical video content”.
Stefanie was asked to participate in the judging panel thanks to our familiarity with award entries here at Faith, as well as for her years of expertise working with various clients across different industries. Entering for an award means providing the right information, and presenting it in the strongest way possible to achieve a clear message that articulates your brand’s story, and Stefanie’s strong eye for that gave her a vision for the winning entry.
