I’m used to coming second. At school, I was deputy head boy. In my career, I’ve been second in command more often than I’ve been in charge. And recently, my team was nominated for an internal award for innovation – and were first runners up. But I can’t remember the last time I actually won something.
So I’m chuffed that last night we took home the top prize at Sitecore’s annual awards for the best websites which use their software. Team BIS walked* off with a gong in the government category and the overall winner’s title of UK Sitecore Site of the Year 2010. And that’s against some mighty competition from the likes of Total Jobs, NHS Direct and Birmingham Airport. I’m proud.
*strictly speaking, staggered.
