Write My Site at the London Business Awards

I recently attended the HSBC-sponsored London Business Awards on behalf of Write My Site, as we had been nominated as a finalist in the ‘On-line Business of the Year’ category.  The timing could have been better, as the awards ceremony fell just a few hours after I stepped off a 14 hour flight from Vietnam, but I was nevertheless honoured to attend.

The venue: Planit, Embankment Gardens

It was wonderful to see so many small, thriving, entrepreneurial businesses in the running for the various award categories: so much so that I wasn’t too piqued when the award for our category went instead to Lords of Notting Hill.

With my body clock 7 hours ahead of GMT, I’m sorry to say I wasn’t able to see the evening out to its 1am conclusion, but I’m reliably informed that  Steve Brookstein (of X Factor fame), who was providing the late-night musical entertainment, was on top form.
