Morgan PR in the Finals of Business of the Year

It is official! Morgan PR has been selected as one of three finalists in the prestigious West Berkshire Business Club Business of the Year competition.

2006 was a fantastic year for Morgan PR and we put a lot of work into our entry to ensure it represented just how much we are achieving. There is no doubt in my mind that we have earned such an accolade, but it still feels fabulous to have made the finals.

Simply getting this far represents a marvellous public relations opportunity. To be a finalist in such a competition has a resonance with other business professionals. Just talking with a prospective client today you could clearly see how impressed they were. It is going to make a difference being a finalist – can you comprehend how powerful being the winner would be?

My fellow finalists are Melvin Byles and his online stationary company Netstationers and Robin Winnitt and Win IT, his bespoke software solutions business. They are two really nice guys with formidable businesses that are both very successful and enjoy a high profile.

It is fabulous to have three really high performing businesses in the final. It makes getting this far all the more of an achievement for each of us and means whoever wins will have really earned the title of: West Berkshire Business Club, Business of the Year.

The next stage is a presentation to a panel of judges next Tuesday, followed by a Q&A session. After each of us finalists has made their pitch the judges will retire to consider who they feel deserves the accolade.

Whilst their decision will be made next week, it will not be announced until a black tie dinner at the Donnington Valley Hotel at the end of the month.

Good luck gentlemen!
