Submit your Pitches for The BD100

Nominations have now closed for The BD100 and we have been blown away by the response. We have received over 300 nominations for business developers across a wide range of our Industry’s leading agencies, from small independent to big network agencies.

The first award of its kind, The BD100 recognises the hard work of the most influential business developers in the UK. It’s a showcase of the biggest and brightest talent driving agency new business in UK marketing today.

A particular skillset is required to be a business developer: they come in all shapes and sizes, with different skills, backgrounds and perspectives. The BD100 shines a light on these skills, all the pitches, the wisdom and the techniques required to be the best in the business of business development.

It is now time for all the nominees to show what they do best and upload a short pitch for their place in this year’s BD100. This will include sharing highlights of the last year and their most memorable win, as well as sharing insights around their approach, tips and best practice. Creativity will be actively encouraged!

Each nominee will be invited to upload their pitch to our BD100 website, live TINT and share on social using #THE_BD100.

The deadline for each pitch submission is 31st March 2018.

We will then turn to the agency world to vote for the pitch that impresses them most – and help to shape this year’s BD100.

Voting will close on 30th April 2018.

Once the votes are in, our aim is to celebrate The BD100 at an exclusive event taking place in May and to publish the full BD100 line-up in the first edition of The BD100 Book. This event will unite the agency business development community. We’ll share insights on best practice and recognise the best in the industry – including the award for Business Developer of The Year!
