30 July saw me speaking to Lord Lieutenants and their esteemed guests at City Chambers Northampton.
My message to the chamber was ‘can you help us find some great companies in Northampton and put them in touch with us?’
My ‘gig’ was arranged by the lovely Eleanor Ansell after putting me in touch with Vice Lieutenant Sir Peter Ellwood who visited BIS in June this year.
I was part of an awards evening and followed a wonderful presentation about the honours system given by Colonel John Royle. Lord Lieutenant David Laing welcomed me and I spoke to everyone about the importance and prestige of these UK business awards and the fact that there are still 2 months to go before the close of this year’s competition… plenty of time to submit a great entry!
