Jeff White, Nominee: Top Newcomer of the Year
Well it was running through the night, I thought I had won some rock star status. I thought when I might get here there will be red carpets out front, too bad. Unfortunately no. No, actually I was honoured and humbled at the same time. It’s a huge honour to have my name going across the desk of the judges, Don Campbell, Peter Kinch. But humbling as well because I know there is so much other huge stuff going on in that room. Dominex spoke and you have seen these guys and girls are just doing so many amazing things and it’s inspirational because it shows me what I have to learn and what I can do, what’s achievable.
O I would love to leverage it as credibility to catch some joint venture partners. And it’s just an exciting thing to be able to help people. It’s a conversation starter, what are you doing this weekend. Oh I am going over, I have been nominated to this award. And so one of the lessons that Julia Broad just gave was that you know you are not selling, you are just telling. You are talking to people about what you are doing and so it will be a fantastic opportunity to tell people what I did on the weekend.
