This week The Drum published their New Years Honours list and our very own Non Exec Phil Jones was crowned 'Networker of the Year', so it seems that although Man United's Jones may be having a rough start to the year, things are looking a lot better for our Jones.
"Not the Manchester United defender/midfielder, although he really wishes he were – Phil Jones is in many ways the glue that holds the industry together. If there’s someone he doesn’t know, then they had better worry, as there’s no one that can connect people within the marketing sphere across all disciplines like The Drum’s longtime Dadi Awards chairman. With his regular Podge lunches growing in size each year across design, digital and sports – Jones has become the walking embodiment of what LinkedIn strives to be – only LinkedIn isn’t as well connected. He’s a top bloke too."
