Did you hear? I’m one of the Ones to Watch – 1 of the 25 Most Influential People in the Cambridge Business Community. I’m very flattered by this, and didn’t even know I’d been entered, let alone chosen, until this afternoon!
I’ll be at a reception at the Doubletree in the city on September 11 where the top three will be named. I very much doubt I’ll be one of them but it’s great news that a woman, and a young one at that, has been chosen for this. That it’s me, is an added bonus!
Just to clarify though, as you always need to when featured in the blessed media, my working in a hospital and cleaning, and the banana packing job were summer jobs when I was 18! Those quotes were provided as part of an interview I gave to the Cambridge Evening News months ago. It sounds like I was doing it last week!!! And I’d like to re assure my clients that I’m not moonlighting by packing banana’s at the weekends ;)
In all seriousness though, I’m really pleased with this. It shows that being persistent,
a positive networker – someone who introduces people to each other and shares their address book readily and looks for opportunities to “pay it forward” is a good thing.
What are you doing to make yourself influential and useful to people in your business community?
