Had an great morning end of last week where I got to introduce the PM as I hosted the Catalyst Awards. These are prizes  (well recognition anyway) for social innovation using social technology.

55 

The PM looked a little tired (no doubt looking forward to the Glasgow East results that evening) but it was great to hear him speak about supporting social innovation and technology. Many great winners but 2 I think that have particular interest for portfolio workers:

The Self-Help Award – School of Everything

For something that helps me help myself.
This innovative site matches up would-be learners and would-be teachers; unleashing unused skills in local neighbourhoods and allowing people, from young whiz kids to retired people, to pass on what they know to others.

The Enterprise Award – Slivers-of-Time

For an innovative new technology solution developed by a business.
A web-based employment solution, allowing people to find bits of work which they can do in between unpredictable commitments in their life, such as childcare, starting a business or studying.

Thanks to Oli Barrett and Dan Mc Quillan who are, as always a pleasure to work with.
