On Wednesday 31st January 2018, Fruitful Marketing attended the Thames Valley Business and Community Awards as our Managing Director James Wright had been shortlisted for Male Entrepreneur of the Year. The prestigious event took place at the delightful Macdonald Berystede Hotel & Spa in Ascot.
It was a fun filled evening with over 200 attendees, starting with a champagne reception and an opportunity to meet and mingle with local business people from throughout the Thames Valley area. The awards had a strong charity focus, with many local fantastic causes being supported by both ticket sales, audience participation games and a charity auction. It was humbling to hear such moving accounts from speakers, volunteers and projected videos.
Throughout the evening we were in great company, being joined by our client Trine Oestergaard, House of Fisher Managing Director. House of Fisher were also shortlisted for the SME of the Year award, having won this titles in their globally industry awards the month before.
Unfortunately neither of us won our awards on the evening, however we remain proud as being shortlisted was a fantastic achievement…it was revealed that over 300 nominations had been received!
A big thank you for all of the hard work and organisation that so many people put into the awards ceremony. It was a fantastic night and we hope to have the opportunity to return next year.
