I heard the news via a telephone call from Martin Brown this morning, and it was soon confirmed by an email from mutual friend Claire Walker – we had all worked with Mel at an event just two weeks ago.

Looking back on Be2Awards 2011

Amid five days of frantic social media activity across London during Social Media Week, the combined Be2Awards and @ConstrucTALKs event on Wednesday 9 February was always going to be my highlight (I was the event organiser after all!).
