Winners – The Digital Transformation Award for 2022.

It’s about 25 years since I met Simon Mabey. He had invited me to work on a video demonstrating the redesign of Exchange Square following the bombing of Manchester City centre. At the time I was a partner in a successful international advertising agency and this was very different to the work I was doing at the time.

Many years later we met again and Simon invited me to help out with project work and branding for his new idea – Digital Urban Place – which creates and provides a platform to support the on-going use and application of 3D urban models for towns and cities.

On Thursday 10th March my wife and I were invited by Simon to attend The Digital City Awards event at The Etihad Stadium in Manchester, where we had been shortlisted for an award for the work we did with #digital #work Wirral. The project is much broader than the work I delivered, so I was flattered to be asked.

We won the Digital Transformation Award! Myself, Ali Raza and Simon took to the stage literally in shock, and what a great night for Simon, Ali and everyone at Digital Urban Place. Here’s to many more!
