When the Gazette announced the Community Champion Awards for 2012 a few people noticed that there was a category for Champion Ambassador and started to mention that I should be put forward for my work with Refresh Teesside.
Luckily not everyone just talked about it and Rick Trotter filled out the form to nominate me. I got a lovely full page spread in the Gazette and some great coverage for Refresh Teesside. The article was also posted online. Huge thanks to Rick for filling out the form and to everyone else who commented on Twitter saying I should be nominated.
Yesterday I was contacted by Lesley from the Gazette to inform me that I have been short-listed for the Community Champion Awards 2012 in the Champion Ambassador award category! Wahooo!
So on Friday 30th November 2012 I will be heading to the Riverside Stadium with my lovely wife to enjoy a drinks reception, three course dinner and award presentations.
Wish me luck!
The next Refresh Teesside is on Wednesday 8th August at 6pm in the function room at Capaldi’s in Middlesbrough. This months event is going to be one of the best events yet, do not miss out! We are really pleased to welcome Kevin Mann as our ‘Spotlight’ speaker this month. His talk is entitled “The Princess is in another Castle“. Nothing else is being shared about the content of the talk but I would advise you not to miss it! We are going to showcase the new Refresh Teesside branding thats been worked on by Chris Scott. We are really exciting to announce our new sponsors who are supporting the event for the forseable future.

Next Event – 6pm, Wednesday 8th February @ Capaldi’s, Linthorpe Road, Middlesbrough
Refresh Teesside meet at 6pm on the second Wednesday of every month. We meet in the function room upstairs at Capaldi’s Restaurant, Linthorpe Road, Middlesbrough.
In Teesside there are hundreds of creative businesses who can benefit from knowing each other. Many of the businesses are relatively small in size, focusing on a specific skill or service. Everyone can benefit from knowing other professionals in their own trades and networking with other professionals who offer skills and services they may require in the future.
Registration will be between 6 and 6.30pm. We will greet you and ensure you are registered. At 6.30pm there will be an introduction to the event with any announcements. After this, it’s up to you to get out of the event what you want.
There will be developers with their laptops out sharing code and working on problems. There will be freelance developers and designers looking to connect with agencies. There will be photographers looking to offer their services to others. There will be business owners who may be recruiting. Most importantly there will be creative people networking with their peers.
There will be light food, kindly provided by Capaldi’s, during the evening. The bar will be open. The event officially finishes at 9pm.
We look forward to seeing you there, if you have any questions then send us a tweet or an email.
