There’s certainly an added feeling of excitement and anticipation in the We Influence office today (among those of us who are in and not working from home, anyway) as we look forward to this evening’s 2020 Prolific North awards.
Normally on the morning of an awards ceremony we’d all be discussing travel plans, outfits and post-event celebrations (or commiserations) plans. Obviously, it’s all very different this year thanks to Covid-19.
Not to worry, we’re still going to be making the most of the evening and will be tuning in to the virtual awards ceremony from 5pm, when hopefully (fingers crossed) we’ll come out on top in the category we have been shortlisted in – Digital Agency of the Year (up to 25 employees).
We’re up against some incredible competition so of course we aren’t taking anything for granted, but a trophy in the cabinet (even a virtual one) would be a lovely way to remember our growth and achievements over the past year.
We Influence Managing Director Graham Withe said: “This is the first time we have been shortlisted for a Prolific North award which in itself is really pleasing as it highlights the growth of the company over the past 12 months.
“We’d love to be there in person to celebrate with all of our friends from the agency world, but in these unique times we’ll instead be getting together as a team to watch the virtual ceremony on the screen.
“Good luck to everyone shortlisted this evening and let’s hope it’s not too long before we can again enjoy attending these great awards occasions together.”
