Jungle fever takes over the Sales & Marketing world!

Welcome to my Friday blog! I hope you’re all managing to read this whilst enjoying the glorious weather, who would have thought we would have a summer during actual summertime?!

Someone I know who is basking in not just the sun, but also the glow of success, is our CRN Fight Night champion Paul Vernon! As you will be aware, Paul brought home the title for Comms-care at this year’s Fight Night after a short fight against Alex Griffin from Computer 2000. The referee stopped the fight in the first round declaring Paul the winner and making it the 6th win in a row for Comms-care. Paul took part in the CRN Fight Night in aid of the Ronald McDonald House at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and so far he has raised over £1500!! We will announce the final total once all donations have been collected, so keep an eye out to see how successful Paul’s fundraising has been.

You can also watch Paul’s fight from the Fight Night on our YouTube channel.

In conjunction with our social media sponsorship of the Fight Night, I ran a competition to win a signed Sugar Ray Leonard boxing glove. All you had to do was correctly predict the winning fighter in each round, but unfortunately no one got all 9 winners correct! There were a few who were close to predicting all of the winners but with some unexpected challengers bringing their determination to the ring on the night the predictions weren’t all correct. Commiserations to those who took part and thank you for entering!

Most of you will be aware of another competition we are currently running as part of our headline sponsorship of the CRN Sales & Marketing awards on the 19th June; “Which Channel Beast in the Sales & Marketing jungle are you?”. This fantastic competition will tell you which animal in the Sales & Marketing jungle you are and by taking part you will be entered into a prize draw to win an annual family pass to one of the UK’s top 12 zoos/safari parks. You can access the competition here. Remember to share your results on twitter using the hash tags #channelbeast and #CRNSMA to gain an extra entry into the prize draw! Good luck everyone!

Our Marketing team is very busy with events this time of year, as well as all of our sponsorships we have our annual Partner Golf Day in 2 weeks’ time and it is all hands on deck to get everything organised. The golf day will be held at the Celtic Manor Resort on the 2010 Ryder Cup course, so make sure you follow the golfer’s progress around the course and find out who the winners are by following us on twitter using the hash tag #CCGolfDay!

This weekend I will be spending most of my time in the gym… why I hear you ask?? Well, all will be revealed (literally!!) at the CRN Sales & Marketing awards so be sure to look out for me on the night if you are attending or follow me on Twitter!
