C&IT A List

The drpgroup were delighted to be invited to the Café Royal Hotel on Wednesday 30th April despite the tube strike, to find out who had been listed in C&IT Magazine’s prestigious A List. The A List recognises and rewards the top 35 agency players under 35 years of age. Emma Kennard, operations manager at thevenuepot has been a drpteam member for nearly 8 years. The A List strives to showcase the future leaders of the industry and features entrants from all leading UK agencies.

Applicants are nominated by the candidate’s manager. Jane Jones, director of events chose Emma for many reasons, “Emma’s industry knowledge is truly amazing, she and her fellow venue finders have a great team spirit and they help and support each other to find the best space for the brief”. Jane also recognised the time and effort Emma puts into her work saying “She attends endless networking and fam trips to keep her knowledge fresh. She will also think of a client when visiting a new venue and understands what they like and dislike, enabling her to tailor exact venues to the client’s taste, whilst always looking for that hidden gem.”

The A List gives recognition to those who really stand out from the crowd in the industry. Emma was over the moon with being listed commenting, “It’s so nice to feel appreciated within the company, let alone the whole industry. Although this is a single nomination I wouldn’t be able to do my job without support from my team who equally exceed expectations in all they set out to achieve for our clients. I couldn’t be happier being listed and well done to the rest of the A List class of 2014.”
