IN ASSOCIATION WITH


“It seems like only yesterday that we last celebrated the performance marketing industry’s successes.” In reality, time had flown by and we found ourselves in the Grosvenor’s Great Room once again, celebrating another incredibly healthy 12 months of achievements and creativity in Performance. Winning a Performance Marketing Award in today’s environment really is an honour. A high level of competition from stakeholders old and new has seen the industry revel in technology advances that are enabling more budgets to be aligned to the performance channel. In the words of one of this year’s prestigious judges, “It is far more difficult to win a Performance Marketing Award now than it was four years ago.” Speaking of the judges, these industry veterans deserve my thanks and indeed, gratitude. It takes a lot of time and patience to review, assess and offer the high standard of critique that the Performance Marketing Awards strives for.

This year’s judging day showcased a significant level of excitement towards the evolution of the performance marketing industry and the importance of delivering value, ever present in all those shortlisted entries. I would like to offer my warmest of thanks to our co sponsors this year, Webgains, and to our supporting sponsors for joining us in 2014. Finally, all that there is left for me to do is say congratulations to all the companies and individuals who were shortlisted, highly commended and whom received a Performance Marketing Award. I am certain this book of the night accurately demonstrates the creativity of an entire industry.

–– Sarah Parsonage Managing Director PerformanceIN


Hal Cruttenden

Host of the Performance Marketing Awards 2014


Hal Cruttenden is a seasoned comedian, actor and writer. His credits stretch from Eastenders and The Madness of King George all the way to Comedy Rocks and The Rob Brydon Show. Hal is unashamedly suburban, by his own admission teetering on the edge of a midlife crisis. According to The Scotsman ‘he takes the personal and the ridiculous, and whizzes them into a delicious comedy smoothie that’s sweet with a hint of sharpness.’ His camp delivery belies his status as a married man and a father, all of which is on show when it comes to patio furniture and one-upmanship with the neighbours. Hal has appeared on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, The Omid Djalili Show and John Bishop’s Only Joking. He’s toured with Brydon and Sean Lock, popped up in Kavanagh QC and Mrs Dalloway, and performed stand-up almost everywhere from Belgium to Bahrain – winning rave reviews at Montreal’s Just For Laughs.


From Our Sponsor It seems that it is barely five minutes since we were here last year, celebrating the best of 2012. While the year moves quickly, there has been no shortage of developments in the last twelve months. Looking back on 2013, the maturation and progression of the industry is clear and it is a delight to be co-sponsoring an event which is all about giving the industry the recognition it deserves.

As much as it is about appreciation of the industry as a whole, the Performance Marketing Awards is also about recognition of the individual achievements and developments which have taken place over the last year. Performance marketing has always been an inherently progressive field, but that is

not a trait we should take for granted; it is only through ensuring we make a space for innovation and experimentation that we can continue to drive the industry forward for all stakeholders and deliver the meaningful results we know are possible.

Ultimately, though, tonight is about celebration; after a year of hard work, now is the time to let our hair down, catch up with our industry partners, and celebrate the best that the industry has to offer.

To cut a long story short, have fun tonight, you deserve it! –– The Webgains Team
