It’s CAT Awards Time


Cover_Awards_CoverI hear that my ability to link remanufacturing to Girls Aloud in my last blog created some hilarity in the trade – good! I’m just glad people are reading some of the stuff I’m writing.

Okay, I’m afraid this blog is a little more serious and business-orientated that the last one.

Well I guess it had to be really, I am CAT’s publisher after all!

What I want to do is promote our January Awards Ceremony and invite you to attend. Because next year, for the very first time, our Awards will be an event in its own right. So I want to make sure they go down really well.

We’ll be holding them in Teddington, in the Lensbury Hotel and Conference Centre next to the CAT offices in Teddington.

The big day is Friday January 22nd. So get that date in your diaries. Here are some Awards facts:

  • They will be presented during a luncheon
  • Those attending will need to turn up at midday – proceedings should be finished by 3pm
  • All nominated finalists will be invited to attend FOC
  • Seven Awards in all will be presented, see our Awards page
  • First 40 invitees to confirm attendance will also get lunch on us

So, if you want to come, send me an email – and register your interest.

The CAT Awards are unique in that it is our readers who decide the nominees and then vote for the winners, so they are worth supporting as they are genuinely the industry’s awards.

Enough from me. I’m now going to go back to my work thinking of my lovely trip to Ireland last week, where I went fishing for salmon and sea trout.

While I didn’t catch any salmon, I did manage a good few sea trout in a place called Connemara – the scenary was magnificent.

It was just a shame about the economy over there. And we think we have it bad! The Irish have it 10 times worse, as abandoned building sites, closed businesses and ghost-streets in some towns testified.

At least the Guinness remained as good as ever, though!
