With Virgin VOOM at full speed for a month now, Virgin Media Business has marked the occasion in signature style. Setting up a giant #VOOM by the Thames, Virgin snapped the perfect picture embodying the breadth, creativity, and dynamism of some of this year’s entrants.
In this perfect pictured snapped by their photographer, you’ll see Jack Farmer from Lettus Grow (heâ€™s holding a clue). Julie Chen is dressed as the Cheeky Panda. And no prizes for spotting Burt the Binman, brainchild of Fleur and William Bateman. Â See full list at end of article
