Birmingham Young Professional of the Year 2008

I’ve been short-listed for Birmingham Future’s Young Professional of the Year 2008. I’m down to the last three of my category, but we won’t get to know the winner until on the night of the awards which is in May – so keep your fingers crossed for me!

Design for change

New coinage, designed by a young graphic designer called Matthew Dent. All but the £1 coin feature sections of the newly (and simply) designed crest, the whole of which features on the £1 coin itself. Lovely.

Shame to lose the sporadically changing designs which have appeared on the 50 pence piece, but maybe they’ll now do this on £2 coins (which don’t seem to be included in the redesign)?

Find out more on the Royal Mint’s website.

Are you an early-bird?

If you happen to be up’n'at’em and in Birmingham city centre tomorrow (Friday) morning between 8 and 9ish, do pop along to Hudson’s Coffee House on Colmore Row for the March Likemind meet-up.

These get-togethers originated in New York City and now happen in about 40 cities across the globe every month - and we host the one here in Brum.

It’s all very informal, it’s not a networking event (!) and you only pay if you have a coffee, so basically it’s just a great chance to have a chat about what’s going on in and around the city, with people you may not otherwise meet. A good old fashioned coffee morning, I suppose, and a very nice start to the day.

So, set your alarms - and see you in the morning!
