It was Halloween and we were off to the Negotiator Awards which were being held at the fabulous London Hilton Hotel on Park Lane.
We were shortlisted for West Midlands Agency of the Year and were hopeful of a good result.
The four of us were dressed for the occasion with Alan and Aidan resplendent in their tuxedos and Louise and Helen looking lovely in their cocktail dresses.
We arrived and took our seats and enjoyed the a great chat with our fellow peers of the industry making some great contacts and swapping stories of fun times and thoughts on the changes to the industry.
We have to say the dinner itself considering how many people were at the event was rather sumptuous, Jimmy Carr, who is known for his deadpan delivery and distinctive laugh delivered a brilliant set working our mixed audience very well and had everybody laughing with his excellent comedy timing, heckling the audience at times as he does so well.
The awards came next. Sadly we narrowly missed out on ours due to some very stiff competition but the evening was still very much a celebration as the team had doubled in size since the previous year’s awards with the plan to grow further in 2018 with two more additions to the team due to arrive in the New Year.
We continued the evening on the 28th floor in the wonderful Windows bar with 360° views over London. The evening drew to a close with the ladies departing by taxi around 1pm with the gents rolling in some time later!
