This year's Awards have shown how much contribution Jane Frost and her colleagues at the MRS have made to the sharpening up of the Society's performance. Foreign Tongues very much enjoy our continued sponsorship of the Best Agency Awards and look forward to next year's, increased numbers again I imagine!
