The nominations are now in for the first ever BD100. We were overwhelmed by the response, with hundreds of the UK’s leading business developers now ready to compete to make the list.
Upfront is proud to support the BD100, which has been launched to recognise the hard work of the most influential Business Developers in the UK. It’s a showcase of the biggest and brightest talent driving agency new business in the UK today.
It takes a particular skillset to be a Business Developer and as Robin Bonn recently wrote, Business Developers “come in all shapes and sizes, with different skills, backgrounds and perspectives”. The BD100 shines a light on these skills, all the pitches, the wisdom and the techniques required to be the best in the business of business development.
Now all the nominations are in, it’s time for the nominations to show us what they are all about and create their pitch as to why they should be part of The BD100.
Each nominee has until 28th February to answer a series of questions and get creative with their pitch. These will then all be uploaded to the BD100 site and found via #THE_BD100
Once all the pitches have been submitted, we will turn to the agency world to get voting. You will be able to view all nominee pitches on a live TINT, vote for the Business Developer and pitch that impresses you the most, and help to shape this year’s BD100.
The BD100 will then be celebrated at a special event talking place in May, date and location to be announced soon. Meet your peers, find out who made The BD100 List, and get your hands on the complete first edition of The BD100 book.
