Marketing departments across the telecoms world have been caught flat-footed with the shock decision by the industry’s flagship awards event to extend its entry deadline.
The maverick team running the Glotel Awards have once more proved they don’t play by nobody’s rules and will roll the dice whenever they damn well feel like it. If you ignore the previous five years there’s literally no precedent for this move and we can only assume it was prompted by desperate pleading from those companies that, for whatever reason, had yet to get their acts together.
“Look, I’ll be honest with you, I’ve kind of been on the lash for most of June,” Marketing Manager Denis told Telecoms.com, on condition of anonymity. “There have been a few festivals and once the weather picked up I had to have a few all-dayers didn’t I? By the time I’d sobered up the original deadline had passed to I’m really grateful to the Glotel team for this. I’m going to get my entry out of the way so I can properly get on one in July.”
The good news for Denis and anyone else that has been ‘too busy’ to give their company the chance at life-changing industry recognition is that they now have until 12 July to get it done. Just click here, follow the very simple instructions and then you’ll be free to do whatever else occupies so much of your time with a clear conscience. You know it makes sense.
