Go West!

Insider is rolling out around the country. We had a superb Dealmakers Awards event at the Passenger Shed next to Bristol Temple Meads station on Wednesday - which is where I've been and why I ain't blogged. Here's the report from Wyn Jenkins from Wednesday:

Some 250 members of the corporate finance community packed into the Passenger Shed in Bristol for Insider's inaugural Dealmakers Awards for the South West of England. It was a triumphant night for Martyn Gregory, corporate finance partner at Deloitte, who scooped the coveted Dealmaker of the Year award. The acquisition of Foster Yeoman by Aggregate Industries was awarded Deal of the Year at the event. Other winners included HSBC, Lloyds TSB, The Royal Bank of Scotland, Bond Pearce, KPMG, Soloman Hare, Osborne Clarke, Grant Thornton and Close Brothers.

We're also doing events in the Thames Valley, London and Newcastle this year.

We're launching South West Business Insider magazine in September.

I'm looking for an editor in the South West. Know anyone? Email me at
