YOURgb is an eclectic mix of events and marketing specialists who together have a lifetime of experience in all different types and style of events. That however does not stop us all having our own little quirks.

Spreadsheets, logistics, uber organisation with a touch of onsite magic.. sounds like the dream job for our Event Managers Karen and Emily!

When we began supporting TSB Bank PLC in London, on their Pride of events back in 2017 we didn’t appreciate just how much of an impact it would have on us. Being part Pride of Britain and Pride of Sport can be summed up with a few simple words – inspirational and mind-blowing.

The Pride of Britain Awards is an annual award ceremony which takes place in London, United Kingdom, first televised on ITV in 2000. The awards honour British people who have acted bravely or extraordinarily in challenging situations and are presented by Carol Vorderman. TSB Bank are proud partners of The Pride of Britain awards.

In 2018 we increased our support and were involved in the Regional events; Pride of Manchester and Pride of the North East – TSB Bank’s core value to support communities these smaller more intimate events ahead of Pride of Britain and Pride of Sport are the perfect platform to celebrate the local community achievements.

The buzz that an event manager gets from months of planning to seeing your event live onsite is what makes events a vocation rather than just a job. If you team this with working all over the UK, being onsite for the live events and meeting the most unbelievable humble and inspiring people it really is amazing.

‘It was an honour to be part of such amazing events. It is events like Pride of Britain and Pride of Sport that make me proud to be a YOURgb Event Manager’ Karen Hemmati, Event Manager

Not only are we lucky enough to be in the same room as these amazing people but we also get to meet each individual Pride of TSB winner. TSB celebrate people helping people, right across Britain starting with their very own TSB colleagues. Each individual has their own story from walking miles across the UK to make money to learning sign language in order to communicate with a local TSB customer.

Going into our 4th year supporting the TSB Partnerships team, we can’t help but feel unbelievably lucky to be involved.
