The people, everyone helps each other out - and we have some great nights out!
Proudest moment at Summit?
Going to a google Manchester event and seeing a lot of ex-summiteers who had gone on to work for other agencies or client-side. Not only was it great to see them, but it made me really proud of how much knowledge and how many skills we learn at Summit.
