My recent copy of the Negotiator contained a good number of pages promoting the Negotiator Awards 2009.
Great for the industry, but I was a little disappointed to note that once again, portals, web and technology are ignored. How can this be after all that has been said and written about both?!
Indeed, if awards are (a) to recognise players in the industry and (b) send a message to their peers that the winners are the companies excelling in these categories, surely portals, the web and technology have never been more important.
I have moaned about this before (after every award ceremony) followed by a suggestion of running our own awards for those agents and industry professionals that embrace these areas and perhaps now I may just do it!!
Any sponsors out there?
