As someone whose whole business (Plan Digital UK) is about connecting people and businesses to encourage more collaboration, I was absolutely delighted to win ‘Collaborator of the Year’ (sponsored by Accenture) at Dynamo North East’s Dynamites16 Awards in recognition of all the work I have been doing to support and grow the North East digital/tech sector in the past 12 months and beyond.
I hope my win will inspire and encourage more people and businesses to work together for the collective good as we all benefit when everyone is doing their bit to celebrate and promote our region.
As a new business owner myself, the award has given me a great boost of confidence that I’m on the right path and so I’m channelling this energy into initiatives like my annual Newcastle Startup Week festival which is designed to be a platform that shows why the North East of England is such a great place to start and grow a business.
