And the nominees are...

Head of Marketing and Communications

Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand.

Anyone familiar with the Christmas party will know that the Marketing team is currently in a frenzy making sure everything goes perfectly. Rik is designing everything from table numbers to working scale replicas of the Apollo 11 Spacecraft, I’m writing a sackful of presentations and speeches and Christmas cards and Kat is triple-checking every last detail. By all accounts, it should be a great night and it wouldn’t be complete without the Webbie Awards.

We released the categories for the 2014 awards last month. With only some mild nagging, everyone posted their nominations into our shiny Webbie Awards postboxes, and the scene is set for an exciting evening next month. Here goes:
