Moving on up

Share this

It seems like a lifetime away from Mixology in London on the 23rd June last year, when our wonderful event was pushed from BBC Breakfast by all things political. The result of the EU referendum was a surprise for most – in fact we’d say it was even a surprise for most who voted to leave! As a consequence of the result of the vote we experienced the most amazing parade of politicians resigning, moving and generally not staying in the same place. 

Our own industry annual round up of people moves is an altogether more positive look at the good people of this sector who have moved onto new challenges in the last 12 months. We wish them all the best.
