How to PushON after Digital Entrepreneur Awards win


PushON has said the Digital Entrepreneur Awards helped the agency win “utterly huge” contracts.

PushON won the DEA for Stand Out Agency of the Year in November 2015 and has really ‘pushed on’ since.

“We’ve won some utterly huge new contracts – a household name brand that you wouldn’t expect an agency of our size to win,” said managing director Simon Warton.

Established in 2005, it now employs 30 staff at its base in central Manchester.

“We only bother entering awards that we believe are credible, added Warton.

“There are a lot of awards around at the moment with more of a focus on celebrating the people who put on the awards, as opposed to the work that’s being showcased.”

The DEAs are coming to Manchester’s Palace Hotel on November 9th.

The awards champion the country’s finest digital entrepreneurs and businesses and are now in their 12th year, with a total of 17 awards up for grabs.

New judges in 2016 include:

  • Steve Purdham, chairman and founder, 3Rings Care
  • Claire Braithwaite, tech advisor at Manchester Growth Company
  • Richard Law, chief executive, GB Group
  • Paul Bason, Director Digital Innovation, MMU
  • Jess Jeetly, Founder and MD, JEETLY

Other confirmed judges include Lawrence Jones, CEO and co-founder of UKFast; Jonathan Wall, controller, Radio 5 Live and 5 Live Sports Extra; and Tom Bloxham, chairman and co-founder, Urban Splash.
