That’s right, after sitting all day with baited breath waiting to see if The Original Wordsmith had made the cut, confirmation that I’d done it came through a short while ago.

The Original Wordsmith has been nominated in the category of ‘Start-up’ in the 2015 Business Matters Annual Awards. On July 3rd I’ll be attending a black-tie awards ceremony at The Hilton, Gatwick South Terminal and even if I don’t win, it’s great to be part of the race – although obviously it would be even better to be victorious! (Anyone who claims that it’s the taking part that matters is fibbing. We all want to win or else we wouldn’t have entered!)

Follow The Original Wordsmith on twitter @wordsfromsmith and keep an eye out for tweets on the night as I reveal the winners as they are announced from each category – not just my own. I’m very much hoping to be able to use the hashtag #itsallaboutwinning when the start-up winner is announced, but even if it’s more a case of #delightedtobenominated, I’ll be celebrating a fantastic first year in business nonetheless.
