Wentworth wins first UBAMA

Antoinette Wentworth, Acting Coordinator: Education Technology, has received the ‘Ultimate Brand Ambassador of the Month Award’ during the Institution’s year-end event.

The new Brand Ambassador of the Month (BAM) competition was initiated during the 2016 academic year to reward exceptional work by NUST staff members. Although the focus is placed on innovation, which is one of the core values of NUST, other factors are also considered when staff members are nominated.

The BAM competition, which Wentworth won during September, rewards staff members who carry the brand of exceptional and outstanding work while they display outstanding work in their area of expertise.

“This is someone who delivers outstanding work and leads by example and will automatically encourage others to follow. Therefore, the competition is driven by the motto: ‘Attitude Counts,’” said Wynand Diergaardt, Deputy Director of the Centre for Open and Lifelong Learning (COLL).

Wentworth, who won the historic award for being responsive to the needs of the Institution’s students and society, was adjudged to be innovative, demonstrating excellence in what she does in her work.

After receiving her award from Sam Shivute, Chairman of the Board of the National Housing Enterprise, Wentworth said: “I’m humbled and ecstatic for the honour of being recognised as the UBAMA of NUST. I always endeavour through my work at COLL, to display the values of NUST exemplarily. Thank you to all who voted for me. It’s an even greater honour to be the very first NUST employee to receive this very distinguished award among many other Brand Ambassadors of the Month.

“I must add that even though I received the award, it belongs equally to the great teams that I have the good fortune to work with.”
