The North East’s Premier event marketing firm, Start360 Group returned from the 2018 UK Sales & Marketing Awards with a fresh sense of motivation and Managing Director, Glen Lowes is determined to be back among the award winners at next year’s event.
A more formal affair than the previous two years which were exclusive black tie events, this year’s awards ceremony was more inclusive and widespread with over two thousand sales and marketing professionals from all over the UK attending. Held on Saturday, May 12th, at the Royal Festival Hall, situated on the Southbank of the River Thames, the Grade 1 listed hall is one of the world’s leading performance venues.
Delegates arrived at the venue for an 11 a.m. start time, where they were treated to a laser and pyro display to kick off the ceremony. There were multiple awards given out throughout the day, including; Rising Star, Top performer and Brand Ambassador of the year, before the big five were revealed. Start360 Group’s Steve Foreman walked away with one of the Rising Star Awards, and Jess Hollings picked up one of the Top Performer Awards as recognition for their hard work and efforts in recent months.
The big five had just one winner and they comprised of; Recruiter of the year, Comeback Business Owner of the Year, Rookie Business Owner of the Year, Most Improved Business Owner of the Year, finishing with the prestigious Business Owner of the Year Award. The winners of the big five addressed attendees, sharing their story and experience and thanking the people who helped them claim their award.
In between the awards, business professionals who flew in especially for the event, from the USA and South Africa and took to the stage to give a speech, designed to motivate and inspire those in the audience.
“All of the award winners spoke with great eloquence, and you could feel their passion and enthusiasm. The speech from the Business Owner of the Year had a significant impact when he addressed the adversity and setbacks he had faced in the past twelve months, and I left there with a fresh sense of motivation to ensure that next year I’m on that stage collecting an award.” Commented Glen Lowes, Managing Director at Start360 Group.
Start360 Group is a Newcastle-based event-marketing firm, specialising in interactive and personalised marketing solutions that utilise the human element to deliver quality and quantity customer acquisitions. Mr Lowes is excited to get back to work. The business owner has huge goals for 2018, and he hopes to be among the award winners at next year’s awards ceremony.
