Last updated at 14:36, Friday, 11 October 2013
One of Britain’s top marketing gurus has stepped in as keynote speaker at the CN Group Business Awards next week.
Nearly 300 people are expected to attend the gala dinner and presentation at Rheged, near Penrith, on Thursday, which celebrates the achievements of Cumbria’s most dynamic businesses.
Kevin Roberts, the chief executive of global advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi, was lined up as guest speaker but has been called away on urgent business in the US. In his place is Mark Palmer, marketing director of the sandwich chain Pret a Manger.
This year’s CN Group Business Awards are sponsored by Barclays and Cumbria Business Growth Hub.
Information about the businesses short-listed are in a supplement in today’s The Cumberland News.
Full details of the winners will be in next week’s paper.
