Congratulations - I've certainly benefitted from Raffles' (and Anika's) input here and on Head for Points

Apologies to Anika - she was also a winner in her own right and I should have mentioned her!

Great site - full of useful information for beginners through to experts, and delivered without all the usual hyperbole of many of the other blogs.

They deserve respect and praise because it is not easy to get such things right these days. The blog combines just the right element of understatement, helpful information and personal opinion. The comments section helps you find a balance of information and help from other readers, without it ever billowing out of control to the point where there's not enough time to read it all.

Congratulations indeed are in order.

Raffles has been a great source on FT and in the miles/points blogosphere. His blog is a favorite of mine.

Thank you. I actually thought we'd win no more than 1 out of the 4 we were nominated for, so this was a great result.

It was a little odd as a lot of people in the room did not know who we were (the people sat either side of me had no idea!) and then suddenly Anika won the first award to be announced (Best Newcomer to Business Travel Journalism) and then we jointly won the 3rd one (Best Digital Strategy) and people were wondering who these interlopers were who were picking up everything!

There are a few pics on Instagram (headforpoints) and a more formal one on HFP here http://www.headforpoints.com/2017/10...ut-last-night/ albeit it makes me look a bit like Philip Hammond :-). Anika is wearing very high heels and is not actually 6'2' in real life .....

Could be worse, you could have looked like Richard Hammond and had Jeremy Clarkson hanging around.
