I was very proud to be announced as runner up in the hotly contested ‘Bluebook newcomer’ award at last week’s ‘Media Adviser Awards’.
Unbiased.co.uk, the professional advice website for consumers, created the awards to recognise the work of individual financial advisers who are taking the lead in promoting independent financial advice. The Bluebook connects personal finance journalists with media-savvy financial advisers who are ready and willing to provide comment, insight and case studies to promote the value of professional advice for consumers.
Eight IFAs were shortlisted in the ‘Newcomer’ category and it was fantastic to see the energy and commitment I’ve dedicated to engaging with journalists recognised by being described as ‘the one to watch’!
Karen Barrett, Chief Executive of Unbiased.co.uk said “Justin is a relative newcomer to the Bluebook media IFA directory but he seems to have already made his mark. The journalists commented that the case studies provided were first rate and that Justin is knowledgeable and personable adding unique insight into their editorial.”
You’ll have seen in previous blogs that I’ve provided comment for the Independent on Sunday’s Wealth Check twice, The Daily Express and the FT’s Adviser magazine among others. Click here to read the articles.
