The Second Best Newcomer in County Durham

Back to my desk after a glamorous night out.

In case you haven’t heard, we didn’t win. I thought for a minute we were going to when the bloke from Virgin Money said that the winner was carving out a niche in a big market, had ambitious plans for its brand, was doing things a bit differently, etc, but it turned out he was talking about our new chum Sarah Pittendrigh of @SimplyBows.

Well, we may not have won the award but I think we might have won a new client or two. I suspect that will be more valuable in the long run. And besides, I was fully expecting Avec to win. They brought two tables of people so I should think there are a few hangovers at theirs this morning…
