Hot off the press, yesterday I was honoured and privileged to attend the TrainE-TrainE Business Awards lunch, attended by 350-400 people in the magnificent ballroom of the Grosvener Hotel on Park Lane. Let me start by saying that I find it hard to do any form of self-promotion, but am so overjoyed with this award, I do intend to put that aside and shout the news from the rooftops (so please bear with me and share in my jubilation!).
And the winner is .... JaffeBlend! In true social media style, the clip was up on YouTube before I even got back to my table. http://bit.ly/ULzviG
This was the debut also of the new JaffeBlend branding, the launch of the brochure and the free "99 Social Media Facts You Need to Know About" booklet.
Please email Sharon for copies as well as the JaffeBlend original jelly beans! I will be making a digital version available via the site very soon.
Then off we headed to the ballroom where the magnificent reception began. Check out the stylish starter which awaited us.
Finally it was Awards time, thank heavens completed before the main course since my stomach was doing somersaults and backflips from nerves. The Business Person of the Year Award 2013 was up first and massive thanks to Jonathan Sumberg for the professionally edited clip of me. Some folks told me they thought I should win based on the video alone (!). I highly recommend Jonathan's video services!
More pictures will be available soon, but in the meantime, here is what the ballroom looked like and the moment I took the stage.
A big thank you to all my friends, clients and colleagues for the support over years across multiple companies and multiple markets. I'm glad to have had you all along with me for the fast-paced bullet-train digital ride. We have had a blast being part of changing the world.
Looking forward to bigger and better things from JaffeBlend.
The best is yet to come!
