Off to the awards dinner for the Kent Digital Awards 2015 and the Breakthrough Funding team were just happy to have a lovely night out.
We entered the awards because we're pretty proud of this website and thought . . . "why not?" But to our surprise we ended up scooping the Gold in the flagship "Best Website" category. Our CEO and Founder, Sue Nelson, accepted the award, which was pretty fitting as she designed the branding and wrote all the initial content. She paid tribute to YoYo Design of Tunbridge Wells who brilliantly developed all the techie stuff behind the website, including the cash calculator.
At the awards dinner we sat next to the lovely Britt Wyatt, the baker and cake decorator who founded She Who Bakes, and deservedly won the "Best Blog" award. When our R&D Co-ordinator who is completely gluten intolerant asked Britt if she made cakes that were gluten free, she replied: "No. Eat an apple instead." We LOVE her!! Don't compromise, just be bold and stick to your brand!
The KDA event, took place at the Village Urban Resort, Maidstone, and was sponsored by the generous people at Golding Vision, part of Golding Homes, and also the Hobbs Parker Group, West Kent Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Sleeping Giant Media and the Chartered Institute of Marketing.
We were all back at work the next day, but the office was a bit quieter than usual.
