Celebrating the UK’s 100 Most Influential Business Developers

November 19, 2019

This week the BD100 celebrates the UK’s 100 most influential business developers, recognizing the talent leading the charge in marketing agency new business and business development.

Established in 2017, Richard McHardy and Jody Osman wanted to find a better way to encourage and recognize the craft of business development professionals across the UK sector and allow the community to unite. And, they’ve done just that!

At Winmo we work with agency new business and business development roles every day, enabling them to identify, qualify and close relevant sales opportunities. We understand first-hand the grit and determination required to be successful in this occupation and that’s why we’re thrilled to be sponsoring the Agency New Business Win of the Year award this year.

Agency business development is a team sport, yet a sport where the team Captain is rarely recognised for their triumphs. Supporting these Captains and their teams with exclusive, actionable insights is our mission, so to partner with the BD100 to celebrate the top-guns and their achievements is our honor. – Dave Currie, Winmo CEO 

Join us in congratulating this year’s nominees! And, if you’re currently working with one of these professionals, know you’re in good hands.
