I mentioned the Hospital Club 100 a couple of weeks. It is, according to the organisers, an attempt to find the "true stars of London's creative industries and the powers behind the throne."
Well, voting has whittled the shortlist of about 350 down to the final top one hundred, and I come in at a very creditable number 76! Thanks so much to those who voted for me -- very good of you!
The inaugural The Hospital Club 100 was launched at the beginning of June this year in association with The Independent Media Weekly.
In essence, it’s a search for the authentic stars and media power across London’s creative industries; film, television, music, new media, journalism, publishing, performing arts, marketing PR undefined events, fashion, art, advertising, media law undefined recruitment and celebrity...
We had an overwhelming response to the shortlist – people voted in their tens of thousands. Given an opportunity to contribute to such a poll, people responded passionately. Due to the democratic process, the results were always going to be interesting, some might say controversial.
These people are not necessarily power brokers, they are creative leaders who are seen as inspirational figures for Britain’s creative industries. So for the first time, you see establishment figures alongside bright young things and new and emerging creative talent.
