“Winning the SMW12 Social Media Personality of 2011 (UK) Award is just brilliant… especially since real people had to vote… it wasn’t simply bestowed on me by a committee! This really helps us stand out from the crowd and I look forward to talking to Sales & Marketing Directors, especially IT Channel Partners, for whom we have created the most amazing web based business lead generation solution in the shape of our Company Pages service… call 01753 852904 NOW to discuss your needs… thank you.”

Read how I chose to respond to the call to action by Chinwag, the organisers of Social Media Week London 2012. Around the world there were over 1500 events in 15 countries. The hash tag #SMWLDN was referenced over 100,000,000 times during the Social Media Week, 13th – 17th February 2012! What an honour to be 1 of 4 Social Media Week Award Winners in the UK.

Thank you to all who voted, or if you thought about it ;)
