IoD Director of the Year Awards 2017

Female leaders took the lead at this year’s prestigious IoD Director of the Year Awards, which took place at the Merchant Hotel, Belfast.

We’re delighted to share that our very own Jill Robb, Marketing Director at Origin Digital walked away with the IoD Young Enterprise NI Director of the Year Alumni Award 2017 which was sponsored by Concentrix.

Jill completed the Young Enterprise Company Programme in 1996/1997 at Belfast High School in Jordanstown, as Deputy Managing Director of Revolutions. Having started her own business, Ambition NI in 2009, she later merged to enhance Origin Digital in 2014. 

“I’m delighted to have been nominated by Young Enterprise to receive this award in recognition of my leadership / business achievements.  I am proud to be a Young Enterprise Alumni and to represent the impact that Young Enterprise has on future business leadership.” – Jill Robb

In addition to building on our agency’s reputation by delivering digital training and talks across Northern Ireland, Jill is also Chair of 1in3 Cancer Support, a Board Member of Gauge NI and a Digital Ambassador for Young Enterprise.

In recent months Jill has worked on setting up a Coder Dojo in her area to teach children how to code and later this year will see her eTourism book alongside Dr. Peter Bolan of Ulster University being published!

Hard work really does pay off! Congratulations Jill!
