Last night a group of us from theblueballroom took the lift up to the 39th floor of the iconic Gherkin for CIPR Inside's #insidestory awards. What a fantastic night! It's great to be a part of such an enthusiastic, high-quality and fun industry - and nights like this demonstrate how true this is! Following a champagne reception taking in the mesmerising views, we headed up one more flight of stairs to the awards ceremony which was compered by the lovely Steph McGovern, business journalist at the BBC. We were honoured to be nominated in the Best Agency category - so much so that it (almost) didn't matter that we didn't scoop it this year. Congratulations to all the fantastic finalists and winners - and a special shout out to ASDA for their 'Best In-House Team' award, sponsored by theblueballroom.

A huge thank you to the fantastic team at CIPR Inside for putting on such a fantastic event - and  we look forward to next year!
