It was another incredible deVere Awards at London’s prestigious Grosvenor House last Thursday evening.

It was an evening which saw our founder and chief executive, Nigel Green, arrive flying down a zip wire, myself and Craig Featherby on stage honouring some of the outstanding individuals in our organisation, TV presenter and West End star Denise Van Outen helping present the awards, TV funny man Ed Byrne raising the roof, X Factor’s Little Mix and electro duo Groove Armada bringing us the tunes, amongst many other highlights…and that’s not even mentioning the acrobatics and the deVere Lounge & Club!

It was another truly memorable, rousing event full of festive cheer – the kind that only deVere Group pull off with such panache.

But above and beyond all this, it was a night to celebrate and recognise the incredible efforts and achievements of the enormously talented people – our most valuable resource – within deVere over the last year.

It has been another 12 months of growth and success for the organisation and I would like to extend my personal thanks to everyone who has worked tirelessly to help us break, as Nigel Green flagged-up in his speech at the Awards, the industry record.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas with your loved ones… and take some time just for you to look back and be proud of all you’ve achieved.  I look forward to another exciting year for you and for deVere in 2014.
