Do you remember that childhood pre-Christmas feeling, when you feel pretty sure you’ve got a REALLY cool Christmas present, but you’re just having to wait, and wait, and wait to be sure. That’s what I’ve been going through with my title sponsor negotiations.
Over the last few weeks I’ve been involved in extensive discussions with the company and their PR people, but I still couldn’t be sure what was inside the package. Surely it was too good to be true….
At last I know what is inside the package, and it is every bit as good as I’d hoped. So now I’m dying to go out and play with it (i.e. tell everybody about it) but we still haven’t signed on the dotted line, so I can’t. The frustration is agonising! All I can tell you for now is: The company is environmentally aware, high tech, local, and staffed by some genuinely nice people.
Keep watching this space, and hopefully by the end of this week we will have a done and dusted deal and I can go public. I can’t wait!
