Michael Goldman at The Talk of Manchester Awards

The Talk of Manchester Business Awards (the TOMs) took place at the Manchester Mercure Piccadilly Hotel on Thursday 5th December 2019. 360 people attended the black-tie event where over 40 awards were presented.

The TOMs are committed to bringing companies together across all industries, from legal, accountancy to digital marketing. The annual awards, which have just completed their 7th year, recognise some of the best SME support businesses Greater Manchester has to offer. 

Paul Kilroe, Host and Founder of The Talk of Manchester, told attendees, “Whether you leave tonight a Winner, with a Special Commendation or simply with pride in your nomination, you do so safe in the knowledge you are the best thing this great City has to offer.

We know you are the best because your clients and peers have literally voted in their thousands to tell us how good you are.”

The event raised funds for Kidscan, a dedicated charity focused on conducting ground-breaking research for children’s cancer. The figure raised from attendees at The Talk of Manchester will be announced very soon but donations can be made at any time. If you would like to donate to Kidscan, the only UK charity dedicated to battling children’s cancer, you can do so here: http://kidscan.org.uk/donate

Thanks for all that voted for us and showed their support – here’s to another great year of digital marketing!

It was a memorable evening, recognising not only the digital sector but all businesses across Manchester. It was particularly pleasing to see some of our friends, clients & suppliers pick up awards in their sectors:
