If youÂ managed to join us for yesterday’s Awards ceremony, you will know that it was an absolutely brilliant event, which was apparently enjoyed by all. If you missed out, you can still listen in to a recording HERE
We managed to combine the “serious business of the day” with frequent injections of humor, and everyone involved deserves a huge pat on the back for a job well done: I particularly want to thank my fellow hostÂ Gerhard Gschwandtner of SellingPower, for his wisdom and wit; Paul Simon, who coordinated proceedings skilfully and professionally, as usual; my small team, who having only just caught their breath back after delivering the new Top Sales World site, again came up with the goods; the audience, who played a full part, and last but obviously not least, all of the finalists, who by their ongoing commitment to excellence, continue to raise the bar in this wonderful industry of ours.
All of the medal winners are now posted over at Top Sales World, in the Awards sectionÂ but I must make mention of a few outstanding results …
In the Top Influencer category, more than 7000 votes were cast, and although both Jill Konrath and Jeffrey Gitomer made the top three for the third year running, this year, Linda Richardson took the gold medal – thanks in no small part to Jim Brodo, the Senior VP of Marketing at Richardson who ran an incredible campaign.
In fact, Linda and Jill picked up a number of other awards, as did Nancy Nardin of Smart Selling Tools, and Joanne BlackÂ – and all richly deserved!
Rather than spoil it for you all, I’ll let you check out the results for yourselves HERE
News: Tomorrow I will be announcing my posting plans for the holiday period
