We are a very sociable bunch here at OVG, so when we were invited to attend the City of Manchester Business Awards, after being nominated twice, we put on our finest frocks and smartest suits to celebrate with a whole host of industry experts and leaders.
The event was held at the Manchester Cathedral – a perfect location for the Game of Thrones theme – and was the sixth annual gala dinner hosted by Downtown in Business.
The event began with drinks and a chance to mingle with the other attendees, followed by a delicious three course meal made up of traditional medieval dishes such as lamb, chicken broth and a pear dessert.
The evening was a massive success and although we didn’t win Best Creative and Digital Business (big congrats to Red Cow Media) we were over the moon that our Accounts Director, Sara Bryan, won Female Networker of the Year.
Here’s what Sara had to say about the night:
‘I’m thrilled to have won the Female Networker award. There were so many great nominees and winners throughout the evening and it was a privilege to be amongst such great company.
The OVG team and I had an amazing night. The cathedral was the perfect setting for the Game of Thrones theme, and as always there was a host of great attendees who all showed what a fantastic night can be had when the Manchester business community comes together.’
Team OVG would like to wish a huge congratulations to all the nominees and winners at last night’s COMBAs – it really proves just how wonderful our City of Manchester really is!
